My first friend in new school, first date, first dance, first kiss.  After that kiss, he said, “Well,that kind of sucked, didn’t it?” and called me a couple days later to break up.

First friend in new school, and our mutual teenage angst made us immediately close. My parents hated her, which only heightened her allure. Turns out she wasn’t really like me, and we grew apart.

Gave up a sports writing career for the “intrinsic” rewards of teaching high school English. I did some great writing in his class, and am still anal about making my verb tenses parallel.
