My brief brush with Treachery and Treason
- All right you guys, wanna hear a feel-bad-for-Maren-story? (Another one!
Lol) Okay, here goes.
As you know, I haven't been able to find a copy of T&T at the bookstores I
happen to chanca upon. Grrr. Anyways, I was at Barns and Nobles today, and I
compleatly forgot that they might have it! Okay, here's what happened. I
went there for a friend so we could work on World History homework together.
(I have seven maps due tomorrow. Ack!) Anyways, it was a great work time,
and I got soooo much done. (Only six more maps to go! [jk]). Anyways,
everything totally left my mind except coloring. So, the time came that her
father was going to pick us up, and we were cleaning up, and she wanted to
read a story in Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul. Anyways, I get the book
in my hands and 'bing!' the light in my head goes on. I literally DROP the
book on the floor (and on some woman's shoe) and race for the nearest
counter so they can tell me where the book was. (I wasn't sure where it was
stored cause it's by lots of authors, see?) And so I get the help, and he
takes me to where it is, and I held it in my hands!!!! I was THISCLOSE to
having it! But I only had two bucks!!!!!! It was horrible! And my friend
didn't have any money I could borrow either. (She just HAD to get that apple
strudel......) It sucked booty big-time! (Is that appropiate?) So anyways, I
figure that I could at least READ the story, but as I open the book and turn
to the page, my friend spots her dad, and drags me away to the door. I had
to let go of the book if I didn't want to be arrested for shopplifting.
Sigh:( But on the bright side, I did get to read the first
paragraph........talk about torture!!
And I asked my mother if we could go back and get it, and she said no.
Ahem, a suggestion.....if anyone on this list who has T&T, and is ever
REALLY REALLY bored, you could always just type out the story for me and
send it to me personally! Do you know how much I would love you forever and
forever and forever? (Hint, hint, hint.....) It would probably be the only
way I will ever get to read this story! (At least that's the way it's
looking right now....) Sigh, well, it was worth a try, right? Right?
Anyways, that concludes my story on my breif brush with T&T.
