Tease!

Teasing early because my life is insane. I spent the weekend making 125 jello shots for my big brother's birthday party instead of writing a 20 pages research paper on PTSD in Iraq veterans due tomorrow. Good role model? No. Well worth it to see him laugh? Hell yes.
Also, the Jack's Mannequin show was so amazing that I could have died. Best weekend ever.







And I got the coolest bracelets ever, because my nieces are amazing and adorable. Why, yes, those are dinosaurs!! Karla, I want to send you the orange one. Expect a random envelope from me soon. It's not anthrax, pinky promise.









Seriously, on to the tease now. We agreed on about 500 words, right? This is probably more, because I'm too lazy to check my word count. Here we go. Band geeks.

It's so sensory. I love the narrator's tentativeness too. Feels really true.

Great teaser--you did a good job of keeping us right there with your MC.

Also--I NEED YOUR PAPER on PTSD. Lol, joking, but I AM researching it.

Yay Jell-o shots! :D
