Flashback Friday #227
Familiarity Breeds Contempt
Hello all. Welcome to another post filled with people you don't know. In last week's post my girlfriend, Toni, broke up with me. I don't know about you, but when I'm down, I look to something familiar to comfort me. That's exactly what I turned to after our break up.
I called Kelly Stump and asked if she wanted to go skating Friday night. If you are familiar at all with my Flashback Friday posts, you know that Kelly Stump is bad news. Add to the bad location of the skating rink set things up for real trouble.
Her drove us to the rink. He said he would pick us up at 9 PM when the rink closed. I didn't skate much, but Kelly did. She reminded me of a roller derby chick.When she would come in for a rest, she sit close to me and whisper things in my ear.
When her dad picked us up, she nearly sat on my lap on the ride home. I could see her dad glancing at us in the rear view mirror. I wanted to make sure I didn't do anything to upset him. Kelly didn't care. I think she was trying to upset him.
When we got to my house. There was a note from Mom saying that she and Dad had gone to Westerville to work overtime on third shift. Dad was allowed to work on third shift, even though he wasn't a permanent Epro employee, because there weren't many who would. There were many things there he could do. This meant that they wouldn't be home until late Saturday morning.
Kelly saw this as a wonderful opportunity. She told he dad "This old house is really spooky. Would it be alright if I spent the night so he won't be afraid?" My jaw nearly hit the ground. I couldn't believe she had asked that. Obviously, neither did her dad. "No, you're not spending the night. Get in the car and lets go." was his reply.
I told myself that I really needed to be done with Kelly. Unfortunately, I didn't listen.
