Alexplorer Goes Time
If you're just joining
this series already in progress, then it means you don't have a time machine,
so here's the short version: Every Tuesday (your present), I come back
from my adventures time-traveling around MySpace and fill you in on what
happened to people from my past as they keep slippin', slippin', slippin'
into the future.
Ah, here's one now...
Mindy (not her real name) was
my sort-of girlfriend in high school. She was more of a friend I
experimented with sexually in her bedroom every Saturday between when we
got back from a movie and when I left to head home before my curfew.
She transferred to my school when her
parents moved to Louisiana during our senior year, and she stood out because
she was well-read and very outgoing. She started college the summer
after we graduated. I didn't start school for another year.
I started going out with another girl/friend around that time.
A little later in the summer I ran into
her again at Walmart where she was working. She bitched about the
teachers and claimed she wasn't getting the grades she deserved.
Lost touch with her after that, but I knew her dad was transferred again
less than a year later, this time to Houston, I think.
Totally butch lesbian (complete
with obligatory motorcycle and camo jacket) living with her partner in
rural Missouri. One of the pictures features Mindy opening an xmas present
given to her by her partner. Can you guess what it was? Yep,
She never finished college (no indication
exactly when she dropped out; I'm guessing her second semester or less).
Her blog is rife with the posturing sarcasm that got her precisely nowhere
with anyone years ago, and apparently is getting her roughly the same mileage
today. She does state she's hoping to hear from people she went to
high school with. Hmmmm. I'll pass.
letter I'll probably never send to her:
The haircut looks good. I'm more
attracted to you now than ever, which could be a good thing since all you
need is an experience with the right guy to turn you. No, wait.
That didn't work last time. Damn. Well, thanks for the tomboy
fixation you left me with.
