A Run-in With Sarah (Entry 3)

This post has been removed for the novel's debut in April, 2012 . . .


    Elisa isn't your regular nerd.  She's not the kind of person who quotes Monty Python, or has a periodic table tattooed on her butt.  No she's a different sort altogether.  She carries a duct-taped Bible everywhere, wears bright-orange polyester pants, and dyes her hair with red kool-aid.
    Even though she tries slipping by apart from the crowds, it doesn't help that her best friend happens to be "The Boarder," one of the cutest and most popular boys in school.  He's not willing to let her go unnoticed—not until she goes to the homecoming dance with another guy.
   "The Boarder" starts acting weird after the date goes well, and Elisa begins wondering if he's only been looking at her as a friend or maybe something more.  She must choose between her best friend and "The Bad Boy," but will she make the right choice?


  1. Do you want me to punch Sarah for you? I'll do it. Give me an address.. Ok I won't do it cause I'd never find her address. I wouldn't be able to see it. But if you take me there I'll knock her out for you. You can just point me in the right direction and say something cool like... Jab right, duck, k get her with your left hook. I could be the blind boxer! Oh yeah!

  2. lol I wrote that like the Kool-Aid man says it. (Well that's how I read it in my head anyway.) I may have issues.

  4. Locker rooms + bullies=not a good thing. I am glad God gave you grace to survive.
    Wonder whatever happened to Sarah?? I bet she is overweight, her boobs hang down to her waist, she has six kids, and her hair is falling out?
    I always always look forward to your blogs.

  5. I wish we would have been a little closer in age so we could have known eachother in school. I'm sorry you had to go through that and no one stood up for you. I remember I always changed in the bathroom stalls because of the things people would say in the locker room. I didn't even want to give them a chance to say anything.

    Much love and I always look forward to reading what you have written, whether it's funny, emotional or inspiring. You make my day.

  6. Ok I'm in, lets knock some sence into Sarah :) I've been waiting for this post and as usual you do not disappoint. Don't bother about my brain meltdown. I think I have forgotten how to spell.

  7. I enjoyed this honest post. I've had a similar experience before, and I certainly understood how you felt.
