domestic foul

When you live in a small town, everyone knows everyone’s business. I spent half my senior year grounded thanks to gossipy townsfolk, all too happy to tell my parents they’d seen my car at Brad Keddy’s house, when I was supposed to be at the library.

They were wearing expensive sneakers, matching tearaway pants, and jackets adorned with the gym’s logos.

2.0 and I often do our grocery shopping together, and we’ve carefully ranked the cashiers at our regular store. We know who’s fast, who’s slow, who’s friendly and who’s not. Our favourite cashier is Clara. If you’re in a hurry, don’t stand in Clara’s line. But if you miss your mom, head right for her. Clara […]
