Megan, Erica, me (2010)
We were the best of friends back in the high school days.
We even had a band, TeliFone Pole.
This was our first real show.

What were we, especially me, thinking? I actually do remember what i was thinking. I just wanted to wear all sorts of weird stuff, because I thought it was cool.
We played this show at a venue called The Circuit.
Megan's friend, Nate, or Oreo as we called him hooked us up and we opened for his band. We sold roughly 30 tickets and made a little cash. I had a crush on Oreo, because he was a really fine black man (half white, half black). When his band was on, I stood right in front of him, below the stage, and stared at his face. I would have married him, but when him and his friend asked Megan and me on a date, we couldn't go because of EFY. After EFY we rarely spoke, me and Oreo. It was just so sad. I often think back and wonder what that date would have been like. Except for I really don't.

They were like, 'Psh... a bunch of girls think they can rock?'
And we were like,
Then we played a song and they were like,
We went on to play lots of house shows and open mics with friends.
Always ending with Denny's.
That is why I liked high school.
