RANTS ON PERCEPTIONS AND ASSUMPTIONS
Authors note: We've all heard of the so called war between those that are
refered to as the sweet nice guys and the proverbial jerks. The Alpha males
and the Beta males as they are called . This is written from a nice guys
perspective but one with an open mind and willing to be honest (hopefully).
Much in this story you may agree with and some you may not at first , but if
one is honest with oneself there is a truth to be found in this story (at least
Garrett Bols was sitting in composition class at Northridge High School and
the teacher of the class just assigned them a term paper that was to be turned
in 6 weeks from that day. According to the assignment it could be on any
topic. "Oh, whoppeee!" Garrett thought having no idea at present what his
would be about. About that time one of his classmates sitting next to him ,
"Gary (my short name), i need to talk to you after school can i come over to
your house after school?" Jasmine asked. Jasmine was a good friend but not
really into me however much that i wished that wasn't so. She just saw me as
just a friend (a very close friend) but never the less just a friend. Let me
discribe her , she is 5 ft. 8 inches , blonde with blue- green eyes sort of odd
really but it was definitly not distracting from her looks, very athletic body
type because she was a majorrett (you know twirling a batton before a
marching band) She was in the very famous Ohio State Blackhawks . The last
three years running she had taken 1st place in all competion. Needless to say
she was somewhat popular at school and a lot of guys chasing her wanting to
be friends or better. She also had a lot of jerks for boyfreinds . Which no
doubt is why she's wanting to talk to me after school today ...hmmm... "let's
see if i'm right." I turned to Jasnine , " Hey Jasi , whats up , that guy giving
you problems again?" "Yah, but can we wait to talk about it at your house ?"
she asked. I lowered my voice and said , "Sorry Jasi , i wasn't trying to
broadcast your guy problems , ya fer give meeeee puuueeesssss..." giving her
my puppy dog eyes looked which generally got her to laugh. "yes , i forgive
you ," as she punched my arm rather hard as she laughed. "Ow... that her
girl you been working out?" She started to punch my arm again but i moved
alittle faster and she missed. She rolled her eyes and looked over at me and i
could almost read her mind "your going to get it yet bub" as she smiled at me
with sort of a glaring look.
When the last bell of the day rang i went to my locker and threw what books
i didn't need into my locker for the night. I couldn't see carrying a load that
was unnecessary to take home only to lug back the next day. I closed my
locker door and started to turn around and almost walked right into Jasmine.
"Whoa... , i,m sorry Jasi i didn't know you were there." "Thats alright Gary,
i was just wondering if you minded if i rode to your house with you now?"
"No problem Jasi", i responded.
I want to take the time now to tell you alittle about myself, hey come on now
you know you want to know this stuff so you get a picture of me in your
mind. Well i'm exactly 6 ft. tall, sandy blond hair thats wavy , blue with a hint of gold fleck eyes which were near sighted (yep that means i wear glasses
can't wear contacts tried but they iretated my eyes to much and made them
look blood shot all the time.) i weigh about 198 pounds last time i was on
scales. I'm not going to say i was ugly to look at but i definitly wasn't what
some would call a face man (you know what a lot of people call exceptional
attractive and good looking) I'm what many would call a book worm even
though what i read is mostlty on the internet. Which in most of my free time i
was generally on. Yep i also earned several bad nicknames such as 4 eyes ,
eaghead , goody two shoes, and a whole slew of others. However some of my
redeeeming qualities was my weird sense of humour and i was a good
listener. Not that it ever helped me much in the matters of the heart . Well
enough about me so lets get back to the good stuff.
Jasi and i were walking out of the school building towards the parking lot
towards my 1962 Ford Falcon Sprint , yah a real classic , which took a lot for
me to restore. She is a beaut, candy apple red with gold flake, chromed wire
rims and a 289 cu. in. that made it the Sprint. One of my friends had
suggested a 390 cu..in. To bad it wouldn't fit the frame though just alittle to
big. Ok i'm rambling again sorry.
Jasi the whole time was alittle to quiet the whole ride to my house , i fiqured
let her be i'll probably find out soon enough whats going on between her and
Scott Jenings. Lets see how can one be tactful about Scott hmmmm...
i quess one can't especially me. Scott was what many would call BMOC
(thats big man on campus) Athletic , extremly good looking (yah the face
man type), the star running back of the football team . Scott was a player i don't mean in the since as a jock in sports , but had dated and went with 25
of the 160 girls of the 312 student body . He'd date them until he got what he
wanted (usually their v-card putting it mildly) and then dump them .
Something i couldn't understand all , the girls knew this about him but would
line up so to speak to be his next victim . And in my opinion for whats its
worth , the biggest jerk in school.
I pulled up in front of my house parking in my drive way, i exited my car
after telling Jasmine that i'd get the door for her. Opened the door and helped
her out of the car. At the time she was wearing a slight frown , "Ok Jasi ,
you've been to quiet the whole ride whats the matter?" Jasi turned to me as
we were walking up to my front door , "Oh , i was just thinking that i wished
Scott was alittle like you." she said with a weak smile. For the next hour and
a half she rambled on about Scott and his behavior while i figuretivly gave
her a sholder to cry on . Jasi looked at me a gave a small sigh ,"thanks for
listening , i quess i just needed to vent to someone that would listen," As
she started walking towards my front door with me following. "Ya ," i said .
"i quess i could write a book on all the things that my gal pals have vented
about." Jasi looked back at me as i was closing the door ,"yes i quess you
could couldn't you." Jasmined only lived a block away and she said she would walk home from there. After she left it suddenly dawned on me what
my composition paper was goiung to be about.
