 It was one of those lazy care free summer weekends when james, mike, courtnee and i went to the blackberry jam. Once we got inside my friends Mike, Tim and lily went to get us some some drinks.
while standing looking at everyone having a good time i noticed a guy standing by himself looking impatient and lost. He was short dark and had freckles. He had on a pair of thick
black specticles. The bottom of his blue denim jeans were ripped and his nike shoes were missin the strings. The white thermal he had on was dingy and had many stains as if it had never

in Colorado, back in the mountains, and his dad was a construction worker and his mom a certified dietician. Once jim told me that i had to ask the question why he was dressed like that
at such a classy place. Jim and his wife...
