Birthday wishes to a boy I barely knew but, loved any ways.
Him: Cause I already have a MySpace..
Her: Oh, alright.
Him: I’m not gonna turn in to a fucking Facebook Faggot! Myspace Bitch all the way!” —
I don’t know what to say for this one so I’ll just give you our top 5 adventures we always talk about and the top 2 we’ve seem to have forgotten.
1. Marvin’s house.
We always talk about the “Marvin Days” and how much fun it was and how much we miss it. This conversation usually some how leads to the story about the day we went to Marvin’s house really early in the morning when my Mom was on her way to work (since we didn’t drive yet) and spent all day long there. That day we just hung around and we ended up watching the Exorcism of Emily Rose… only the most interesting and most scary parts of course. Side note, if you don’t know me and Vicky both of us have the attention span of a kindergartener and have trouble finishing shows, movies, songs, etc.. we’re famous for flipping channels and changing songs.
Anyways we watched enough of the movie to scare ourselves. I slept over Vicky’s house that night and we both couldn’t sleep and time crept up to the “Witch’s hour” (3:00am) and we ended up scaring each other without doing anything. And I’m not sure when in the night this happened but at some point we were talking to Marvin about how scared we were and he came up to her house and scratched against the outside wall of her room and windows and scared the shit out of us.. It was a good time :)
2. Crisco Frosting
During the first Kaliko period when me and Vick were Freshmen, she came to sleep over at my house in Mililani. I just happened to be neighbors with Kaliko’s good friend Shiloh and the same night she was staying over he just happened to be staying at Shiloh’s house. We thought it would be a cute idea to bake a cake for the boys to eat the next day so, we got busy with that.
We baked the cake, took it out, and got ready to ice it when we realized we had nothing for frosting. Because we’re so resourceful we looked up a recipe on the internet and started making that when we realized we didn’t have any butter.. which was the main ingredient of course. Desperately searching my fridge and calling the boys to ask if they had butter over there but finding none, we thought it was a great idea to use Crisco. Needless to say it was disgusting and we couldn’t use it. But of course, the story doesn’t end there. We didn’t want to waste an entire bowl of frosting so instead of using it or just dumping it, me and Vick sat on the kitchen counter and spooned the nasty goop into our mouths and ate it until we were literally sick. Haha :)
3. The List
Unlike every one else who seemed to be using their high school years to experiment with drinking, weed, and sex… me and Vick spent our time testing out “lucky charm” that supposedly only worked when we were together (I still think that’s true).
We spent our weekends wandering random malls, playgrounds, parks…pretty much anywhere with people. Every time we went out we would start a “Count” which was our name for how many guys we could get to try to get our attention or give us their numbers.
One epic day we spent the entire day together. I’m pretty our list/ count that day consisted of (1)the group of boys at Fun Factory that included DJ? (2)the two boys that we took a picture with at Fun Factory… Vicky always remembers the weird guy’s name but I can never think of it (3)the boys from Kahuku.. I think that was Kalei and who ever else (4)the Mexicans in the car at Pearlridge (5)the boys that came out of the movies at Town Center (6)the boys at WalMart (7)the creepy boy that followed us around Pearlridge that made us run up the stairs by Boarders… I think that was it. Haha. Vicky, if you read this note theres a notebook at my Dad’s house that has the stupid letters that we wrote in our “burn book” thing with the stuff to Karissa and the official list we wrote when we came back the night we made this count. It’s the High School Musical book.
4. Boys at the fair
One night while we were doing our favorite thing… creeping at the 50th State Fair, we spotted a couple boys that we wanted to ride Musical Express with. When we asked them if they wanted to go they said they didn’t have any tickets so we spent THIRTY BUCKS buying tickets for all five of them to come on the ride with us. Then when we got on the two we wanted to come with us were the only two that didn’t get on the ride. They booked it and left as soon as the ride was over. Almost every time after that we swear we saw the boy with the light blue jacket that ripped us off at Pearlridge. We always wanted to ask him for our money back but we never did, we’re too nice :)
5. Cold Showers
This isn’t just one day but every single day we ever went to the beach. One summer me and Vick spent our whole day on the bus to the beach and could never quite say that our day was over and our adventure was complete until we had our cold shower at Walls. We’d always split a subway with chips and sprite for lunch then cold stone for dessert. I miss ALL of our summer adventures. I miss my best friend.
1. Running from Vicky’s Grandpa
One night we got Vicky’s grandparents to okay us going out because I said that my brother was taking us to a movie. Truth was that we got Darin to pick us up and take us somewhere.. I don’t even know where we ended up going? But Vicky’s grandpa tried to wait and see us get picked up so when he turned away we had to sprint down the hill and jump in to the truck. I remember both of us cracking up because we were wearing tube tops and both of ours fell down when we were running. We were trying to figure out if Darin saw it. Vicky, I miss doing Sketchy stuff with you.
2. Buying a Mouse
Back when we hung out at Town Center and all the “Mililani Boys” were working at the movies, we would creep by the box office to see if Tony was working. One day when he was working one of the windows we had a brilliant plan to buy a mouse from the pet store and slide that under the glass where you put your money when he gave us our tickets. We spent all day deciding if we were cool enough to pull it off and if we were ballsy enough to do it. We were walking back and forth from the movies and the pet store all day trying to figure out how much trouble we’d be in if the plan back fired when no one else found it funny.
Alyssa, I miss you.
You’d take care of this whole situation.
No one gets that I’m not in to confrontation and making things into bigger arguments
