Good Times and Bad Attitudes
by Gregory C. Hundemer
"...so what you're saying," my girlfriend said to me, "is that you'd rather listen to an Everclear album than make out with me?" "Well," I said, "let me explain. Yes." My girlfriend, whose name was Jessica, was appalled. "Well," she said, "it'd better be Sparkle and Fade, because God knows that that's their best work." "Well, actually," I said, "I've been listening to Good Time for a Bad Attitude lately, and I'm really digging 'Out of my Depth' and 'Overwhelming'." "What?!" Jessica looked at me like I was crazy.
"Well, I think that now is a good time for me to leave with a bad attitude, you big jerk!" she yelled, and then she stormed off, slamming my door behind her. I was kind of mad at her, especially since she didn't even give me a good night kiss, but it didn't really bother me that much since 'Out of my Depth' was starting. Anyway, after I fell asleep that night, I woke up in the morning. I yawned, and then went off to the kitchen to look for some Froot Loops®. To my dismay, I didn't have any. "Darn," I thought to myself, and then jumped into my car to go to the grocery store to buy some. Once I got there and bought the Froot Loops®, I was accosted by a security guard. "Hey young man!" he shouted. "What's your name?" I looked at him blankly for a second, and then said, "Greg." "Greg, huh? Sounds like a trouble maker to me!" I was like, "I'm not a trouble maker! I just came here to buy some Froot Loops®!" and then he was like, "Oh yeah? How'd you get here?" "I drove!" I shouted. "Let me see your license," he said. I then realized that in my haste, I had left my license at home. Using my quick thinking, I said, "It's in my car. Just a second," and I got out my keys, unlocked my door, and pretended to rummage through the glove compartment while secretly putting my key in the ignition. By the time I had started up the car and driven off, the security guard couldn't catch me.
Haha! Looks like I win again!
