for once i was part of the cool kids
i was accepted
i was appreciated
they even laughed at my jokes.
the guys were all handsome and clever
the girls were all beautiful and smart
which one would fall in love with me and take the rest of this journey with me?
finding out would be the adventure.

i excused myself to take care of some necessary business
i made a joke about it
they all laughed of course,
and when i came back out they were gone.
