    10th grade

    As I sat there in English class, I stared at the girl next to me. She was my so called "best friend". I stared at her long, silky hair, and wished she was mine. But she didn't notice me like that, and I knew it. After class, she walked up to me and asked me for the notes she had missed the day before and handed them to her. She said "thanks" and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I wanted to tell her, I want her to know that I don't want to be just friends, I love her but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why.

    11th grade
    The phone rang. On the other end, it was her. She was in tears, mumbling on and on about how her love had broke her heart. She asked me to come over because she didn't want to be alone, so I did. As I sat next to her on the sofa, I stared at her soft eyes, wishing she was mine. After 2 hours, one Drew Barrymore movie, and three bags of chips, she decided to go to sleep. She looked at me, said "thanks" and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don't want to be just friends, I love her but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why.

    Senior year
    The day before prom she walked to my locker. My date is sick" she said; he's not going to go well, I didn't have a date, and in 7th grade, we made a promise that if neither of us had dates, we would go together just as "best friends". So we did. Prom night, after everything was over, I was standing at her front door step. I stared at her as she smiled at me and stared at me with her crystal eyes. I want her to be mine, but she isn't think of me like that, and I know it. Then she said "I had the best time, thanks!" and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don't want to be just friends, I love her but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why.

    Graduation Day
    A day passed, then a week, then a month. Before I could blink, it was graduation day. I watched as her perfect body floated like an angel up on stage to get her diploma. I wanted her to be mine, but she didn't notice me like that, and I knew it. Before everyone went home, she came to me in her smock and hat, and cried as I hugged her. Then she lifted her head from my shoulder and said, "you're my best friend, thanks" and gave me a kiss on the cheek. I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don't want to be just friends, I love her but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why.

    A Few Years Later
    Now I sit in the pews of the church. That girl is getting married now. I watched her say "I do" and drive off to her new life, married to another man. I wanted her to be mine, but she didn't see me like that, and I knew it. But before she drove away, she came to me and said "you came!". She said "thanks" and kissed me on the cheek. I want to tell her, I want her to know that I don't want to be just friends, I love her but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why.

    Funeral
    Years passed, I looked down at the coffin of a girl who used to be my "best friend". At the service, they read a diary entry she had wrote in her high school years. This is what it read: I stare at him wishing he was mine, but he doesn't notice me like that, and I know it. I want to tell him, I want him to know that I don't want to be just friends, I love him but I'm just too shy, and I don't know why. I wish he would tell me he loved me! `I wish I did too...` I thought to my self, and I cried.

    Her hair was up in a ponytail
    Her favorite dress tied with a bow
    Today was Daddy's Day at school
    And she couldn't wait to go.
    But her mommy tried to tell her,
    That she probably should stay home.
    Why the kids might not understand,
    If she went to school alone.
    But she was not afraid;
    She knew just what to say.
    What to tell her classmates
    Of why he wasn't there today.
    But still her mother worried,
    For her to face this day alone.
    And that was why once again,
    She tried to keep her daughter home.
    But the little girl went to school,
    Eager to tell them all.
    About a dad she never sees,
    A dad who never calls.
    There were daddies along the wall in back,
    For everyone to meet
    Children squirming impatently,
    Anxious in their seats.
    One by one the teacher called,
    Each student from the class.
    To introduce their daddy,
    As seconds slowly passed.
    At last the teacher called her name,
    Every child turned to stare.
    Each of them was searching,
    For a man who wasn't there.
    "Where's her daddy at?"
    She heard a boy call out.
    "She probably doesn't have one"
    Another student dared to shout.
    And from somewhere near the back,
    She heard a daddy say,
    "Looks like another deadbeat dad,
    Too busy to waste his day."
    The words did not offened her,
    As she smiled up at her mom.
    And looked back at her teacher,
    Who told her to go on.
    And with hands behind her back,
    Slowly she began to speak.
    And out from the mouth of a child,
    Came words incredibly unique.
    "My daddy couldn't be here,
    Because he lives so far away.
    But I know he wishes he could be,
    Since this is such a special day.
    And though you cannot meet him,
    I wanted you to know.
    All about my daddy,
    And how much he loves me so.
    He loved to tell me stories
    He taught me to ride my bike.
    He surprised me with pink roses,
    And taught me to fly a kite.
    We used to share fudge sundaes,
    and ice cream in a cone.
    And though you cannot see him,
    I'm not standing here alone.
    Cause my daddy's always with me
    Even though we are apart.
    I know because he told me,
    He'll forever be in my heart."
    With that, her little hand reached up,
    and lay across her chest.
    Feeling her own heartbeat,
    Beneath her favorite dress.
    And from somewhere in the crowd of dads,
    Her mother stood in tears.
    Proudly watching her daughter,
    Who was wise beyond her years.
    For she stood up for the love
    Of a man not in her life.
    Doing what was best for her,
    Doing what was right.
    And when she dropped her hand back down,
    Staring straight into the crowd.
    She finished with a voice so soft,
    But its message clear and loud.
    "I love my daddy very much,
    He's my shining star.
    And if he could he'd be here,
    But heaven's just too far.
    You see he was a fireman
    And died just this past year.
    When airplanes hit the towers
    And taught Americans to fear.
    But sometimes when I close my eyes,
    It's like he never went away."
    And then she closes her eyes,
    And saw him there that day.
    And to her mother's amazement,
    She witnessed with surprise.
    A room full of daddies and children,
    All starting to close their eyes.
    Who knows what they say before them,
    Who knows what they felt inside.
    Perhaps for merely a second,
    They saw him at her side.
    "I know you're with me Daddy."
    To the silence she called out.
    And what happened next made believers,
    Of those once filled with doubt.
    Not one in that room could explain it,
    For each of their eyes had been closed.
    But there on the desk beside her,
    Was a fragrant long-stemmed pink rose.
    And a child was blessed, if only for a moment,
    By the love of her shining bright star.
    And given the gift of believing,
    That heaven is never too far

    Find a guy who calls you beautiful instead of hot, who calls you back when you hang up on him, who will lie under the stars and listen to your heartbeat, or will stay awake just to watch you sleep... wait for the boy who kisses your forehead, who wants to show you off to the world when you are in track pants, who holds your hand in front of his friends, who thinks you're just as pretty without makeup on. One who is constantly reminding you of how much he cares and how lucky he is to have YOU... The one who turns to his friends and says, "thats her"....

    A mother passing by her daughter's bedroom was astonished to see the bed was nicely made and everything was picked up. Then she saw an envelope propped up prominently on the center of the bed. It was addressed, "Mom." With the worst premonition, she opened the envelope and read the letter with trembling hands:

    Dear Mom: It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you. I had to elope with my new boyfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with Dad and you. I've been finding real passion with Ahmed and he is so nice-even with all his piercings, tattoos, beard, and his motorcycle clothes. But it's not only the passion Mom, I'm pregnant and Ahmed said that we will be very happy. He already owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. He wants to have many more children with me and that's now one of my dreams too. Ahmed taught me that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone and we'll be growing it for us and trading it with his friends for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want. In the meantime, we'll pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so Ahmed can get better; he sure deserves it!! Don't worry Mom, I'm 15 years old now and I know how to take care of myself. Someday I'm sure we'll be back to visit so you can get to know your grand children.

    Your daughter, Judith

    PS: Mom, none of the above is true. I'm over at the neighbor's house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than my report card that's in my desk center drawer. I love you! Call when it is safe for me to come home.

    "Eleven Hints for Life"

    1. It hurts to love someone and not be loved in return.
    But what is more painful is to love someone and never
    find the courage to let that person know how you feel.

    2. A sad thing in life is when you meet someone who
    means a lot to you, only to find out in the end that it was
    never meant to be and you just have to let go.

    3. The best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a
    porch swing with, never say a word, and then walk away
    feeling like it was the best conversation you've ever had.

    4. It's true that we don't know what we've got until we lose
    it, but it's also true that we don't know what we've been
    missing until it arrives.

    5. It takes only a minute to get a crush on someone, an
    hour to like someone, and a day to love someone-but it
    takes a lifetime to forget someone.

    6. Don't go for looks, they can deceive. Don't go for wealth,
    even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you
    smile because it takes only a smile to make a dark day
    seem bright.

    7. Dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go,
    be what you want to be. Because you have only one life and
    one chance to do all the things you want to do.

    8. Always put yourself in the other's shoes. If you feel that it
    hurts you, it probably hurts the person too.

    9. A careless word may kindle strife. A cruel word may wreck
    a life. A timely word may level stress. But a loving word may
    heal and bless.

    10. The happiest of people don't necessarily have the best
    of everything they just make the most of everything that comes
    along their way.

    11. Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, ends with
    a tear. When you were born, you were crying and everyone
    around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die,
    you're the one smiling and everyone around you is crying.

    9 Things I Hate About Everyone

    1. People who point at their wrist asking for the time... I know where my watch is pal, where the hell is yours? Do I point at my crotch when I ask where the toilet is?

    2. People who are willing to get off their a** to search the entire room for the TV remote because they refuse to walk to the TV and change the channel manually.

    3. When people say "Oh you just want to have your cake and eat it too". Damn Right! What good is cake if you can't eat it?

    4. When people say "it's always the last place you look". Of course it is. Why the hell would you keep looking after you've found it? Do people do this? Who and where are they?

    5. When people say while watching a film, "did ya see that?" No Loser, I paid $12 to come to the cinema and stare at the damn floor!

    6. People who ask "Can I ask you a question?"... Didn't give me a choice there, did ya sunshine?

    7. When something is 'new and improved'. Which is it? If it's new, then there has never been anything before it. If it's an improvement, then there must have been something before it, couldn't be new.

    8. When people say "life is short". What the hell??? Life is the longest damn thing anyone ever does!!! What can you do thats longer?

    9. When you are waiting for the bus and someone asks "Has the bus come yet?" If the bus came, would I be standing here???

    When a GIRL is quiet,
    Millions of things are running in her mind
    When a GIRL is not arguing,
    She is thinking deeply
    When a GIRL looks at u with eyes full of
    questions,
    She is wondering how long you will be
    around
    When a GIRL answers "i'm fine" after a
    few seconds,
    She is not at all fine
    When a GIRL stares at you,
    She is wondering why you are lying
    When a GIRL lays on your chest,
    She is wishing for you to be hers forever
    When a GIRL calls you everyday,
    She is seeking for your attention
    When a GIRL sms's u everyday,
    She wants you to reply at least once
    When a GIRL says I love you,
    She means it
    When a GIRL says that she can't live
    without you,
    She has made up her mind that you are
    her future
    When a GIRL says "i miss you",
    No one in this world can miss you more
    than that.

    In case you needed further proof that the human race is doomed to stupidity, here are some actual label instructions on consumer goods:

    On a Sears hairdryer -- Do not use while sleeping.
    (Shoot, and that's the only time I have to work on my hair.)

    On a bag of Fritos -- You could be a winner! No purchase necessary. Details inside.
    (the shoplifter special)?

    On a bar of Dial soap -- "Directions: Use like regular soap,"
    (and that would be how???....)

    On some Swanson frozen dinners -- "Serving suggestion: Defrost."
    (but, it's "just" a suggestion).

    On Tesco's Tiramisu dessert (printed on bottom) -- "Do not turn upside down."
    (well...duh, a bit late, huh)!

    On Marks & Spencer Bread Pudding -- "Product will be hot after heating."
    (...and you thought????...)

    On packaging for a Rowena iron -- "Do not iron clothes on body."
    (but wouldn't this save me more time)?

    On Boot's Children Cough Medicine -- "Do not drive a car or operate machinery after taking this medication."
    (We could do a lot to reduce the rate of construction accidents if we could just get those 5-year-olds with head-colds off those forklifts.)

    On Nytol Sleep Aid -- "Warning: May cause drowsiness."
    (and...I'm taking this because???....)

    On most brands of Christmas lights -- "For indoor or outdoor use only."
    (as opposed to...what)?

    On a Japanese food processor -- "Not to be used for the other use."
    (now, somebody out there, help me on this. I'm a bit curious)

    On Sainsbury's peanuts -- "Warning: contains nuts."
    (talk about a news flash)

    On an American Airlines packet of nuts -- "Instructions: Open packet, eat nuts."
    (Step 3: maybe, ooh...fly Delta?)

    On a child's Superman costume -- "Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly."
    (I don't blame the company. I blame the parents for this one.)

    On a Swedish chainsaw -- "Do not attempt to stop chain with your hands or genitals."
    (Oh my ..was there a lot of this happening somewhere?)

    Now that you've smiled at least once, it's your turn to spread the stupidity.
