"You'll appreciate that more when you're my age."

I drove 3 hours to see The Girl With Two Names.

I knew her first from Facebook, then text messages, and finally, from Skype.

But never in person.

We had mutual acquaintances, so we knew that neither was a psycho or secretly a 40-year-old man, but it was still somewhat of a nerve-wracking concept.

But I was suffocating in Auburn.

Disappearing Boy

So, hopefully you've noticed that I haven't posted my weekly story in two weeks (if my math and memory serve.)

It's not because I'm lazy.

It's because a gauntlet has been thrown, and I have been given a opportunity and a challenge that could greatly alter the course of my life, so I have been devoting all my energy into that project.

A Drew Meeks Update

So, I wrote about Drew Meeks a few weeks ago and sent him the link.

He always told me to make a movie about him, so I thought the story might be a nice consolation prize for the time being.

The next day I got a very nice response from him, so I thought I'd share it as a bonus post.

Johnny and Roy

For those of you that don't know, I work at a television station.

Even though I live 45 minutes and a county away from where I work, it's such a rural area that the station covers Stevenson and the greater Jackson County area.

Everyone with an e-mail account at my station gets police reports from local sheriffs' offices.

I always check the Jackson County Sheriff's Report, because, more times than not, I know the person who has died or been arrested.

Last week the report stated that a man's body had been found in the water behind the Mud Creek Restaurant.

Origin Story

Words are pretty fucking great.

I mean look above this. They're totally kicking that kid's ass.

Dumb jokes aside, I digress...

The Note

Dear Coach Hauser...

Alex was hot.

She was a senior when I was a freshman.

She was in the band with me.

She was sexually active.

I Hope They Have Fishing in Hell

Drew Meeks is the most interesting man in the world...or at least the most interesting man in Jackson County, Alabama.

I’m a firm believer that if you went to public school, your hormones probably drove you to do at least one gross, sexual, or at least semi-sexual thing in a school setting.

At some point between 6th and 12th grades you become a fucking monster just like I did and you did something that you regretted.

So here's how we're gonna do this thing...

So, I got a lot of nice responses to my post yesterday.

Thank you, thank you, thank you. That post was a really personal one for me, and I'm glad that you guys enjoyed it.

So, where do we go from here?

1210 Zuber St.

I could have died for $35.04 worth of shitty pizza on 1210 Zuber St. in Opelika, Alabama.
It was Monday, July 11, 2011, and I was 22 years old.  
I was wearing Domino’s Pizza shirt that was three sizes too big for me because that was all they had when I had started a month and a half earlier.
