It was dark by the time everyone left Kristy’s, and I spent a good 20 minutes watching the shadows play across the wall and thinking of nothing. Sometimes I would hear a car ride by and slow down, and it always sounded like the same car, something heavy and ominous, like Stacey’s mom’s minivan.

Like, sorry that you have diabetes Stacey, but do we have to spend half the afternoon discussing it? More
