Sample text

Unfortunately, our feelings weren’t reciprocated. The prettiest girl in school was named Laura. She was a cheerleader, and Tim loved her. She was a friend of my brother’s, who was a jock, so I asked her for her picture. ” I think it’s because she didn’t remember my name. I sold it to Tim for two bucks. Friendship had its limits. When we graduated from high school, we got jobs. I worked in an office for an electric utility. Tim was a mechanic at Logan’s Mobil. I’d stop by every morning on my way to work for a dollar’s worth of gas and conversation.

A most impressive thing happened the evening I slept at my friend’s apartment. His wife asked him to take out the garbage. He invited me to watch him. Having carried out trash myself, I wasn’t all that excited at the prospect but went along for the sake of politeness. He took the trash to the end of his hallway, opened a little door, and dropped the trash in.
