Alabama Sons Goes Live!
The party is going down now....
"SHE MADE SMALL talk look good. She laughed at my stupid jokes, and quirked an eyebrow when I made comments about her being the prettiest girl in the restaurant tonight.
"Boy, you sure lay it on thick." She shook her head and laughed toward the open window Maybe I was, I didn't want her to feel cheap. wanted to tell her I was just nervous, but truthfully I had a feeling she had a thing for Boone.
I wanted to look more like a man and less like a pussy driving a beat up Jeep Wrangler as we followed Boone's lifted 80's restored Chevy C-10 pickup Chevy C-10 pickup. Every time he revved forward the vibrations of his truck reverberated through the Jeep making my manhood grow a size.
"Naw, just want a pretty girl to feel appreciated."
Ok isten to yourself or anything; keep laying it on thick ike an asshat I reached over her lap and dropped down the glove box; fishing around for the pack of gum I knew I had thrown in there.
"Can get this for you get this for you, please?
You're going to kill us." She put her hands over mine and pushed me away. Her hands felt small and warm, but her grip was fierce. It instantly was fierce. It instantly made me imagine her hands elsewhere"Thanks." I couldn't look at her as she handed me the piece of gum, putting one in her mouth also. I was sure if I caught her glance the wrong way in glance the wrong way in my direction I'd end up springing to attention righ here in the car.
"So where do you go to school?" I decided to change the topic to something so far from sexual it would take a miracle to relate it back"I don't right now. I took a year off. I was going to the community college for Human Sexuality, though.
" She looked at me and I could feel my mouth dropping lower as she spoke. "I want to be a Sex Ed teacher eventually.
How in the fuck is this my life?"That's an odd…" I paused with question not wanting to offend her"vocation choice?" She nodded. "Yeah, but, someone has to do it. I jus want to teach them to want to teach them to be safe, they're going to do it anyway, might as wel et them know it's ok f you're being cautious and not just doing it because you're being you're being pressured.
Kids don't relate to movies and putting a condom on a banana anymore. They need to be taught through 20th century know-how. I choked on the excess saliva from the gum chewing"Yeah, well I understand where you're coming from but you think you really wanna teach all those kids The Way of the Warriors?" I hope she got my sperm joke"Someone has to teach them, Jackson. I'm not saying I'll be the Mother Theresa of sexual indemnity. But, I hope to at least help them understand t's ok to love someone and still stay safe.
" I couldn't take my eyes off take my eyes off her, she kept surprising me, and I hadn't expected this from her"JACKSON!" she yelled and my eyes whipped forward as we almost crashed into the back of the gigantic pick-up truck I slammed on the brakes.
Boone had slowed down to find parking on Duncan's to find parking on Duncan's packed suburban street. "FUCK!" I reached across and slammed my righ forearm into her chest protectively.
"Sorry!" I pulled n behind Boone in the line of parked cars. "I'm sorry, you distracted me." Better be hones from the starting gate, Jackson.
I stared at her, stil breathing a little heavier from the adrenaline She looked back at me, calm as a cucumber.
"It's jus sex, Jackson," she climbed down from the Jeep, turning back, looking at me with soft eyes and a hard smirk "don't be distracted by it."
Oh, but I was.
