An excerpt …

(He saw her at school.)

Her name is Sharon. One day she just … just came into focus. I think it was the transition in class from adverbs to Robert Frost poetry. It was like someone had hit me with a lightning-charged cattle-prod … whatever that is. As I looked at her, really for the first time, I was mentally transported to a field, and we were running toward each other in slow motion. (looks above the audience, toward the horizon; spreads arms wide as if running in slo-mo) I saw that field … her running towards me, her long stringy hair bouncing off her shoulders, the sun glistening off her braces as she smiles. I knew, after searching my entire life, I had found (looks directly at audience.) … love.

(A plan unfolds.)

So … I’m trying to decide my next move … what to say next time I see her. I’ve decided that my line depends upon her mood. So I’ve got to guess how the female mind works. It could go like this. Sharon will come up to me in the library while I’m thumbing through the comic book Cliff Notes. “Oh, Josh! (insert your name) The time away from you has been unbearable. I’m sorry I took so long to get back to you. Here’s your homework. My typing skills aren’t what they used to be, but remember I did it for you!” That’ll be good. I’ll have her and my homework.

(Then, there is reality.)

I break a knowing grin, wink my eye and give him a nod of the head. Then I slowly open the other note. It says, “Josh. I have been thinking about yesterday … I have finally decided to ask Mr. Shadling to move me to a different seat.”

You just never know what life has in store for you!
