why i am a writer: to explain

as some of you may know, i have some allergies.

no, it's true.

anyway, last night in class, i was eating a candy cane. it did not take long before i could feel the effects of the sugar. which meant the people around me could definitely see the effects. an infamous book stealer named sloan was intrigued by my behavior, so i explained the usual progression of sugar in my body:

i get excited.
i get loud.
i tell secrets.
i get paranoid.
i crash.
i throw up.

she was eager to see if i would tell any secrets, but i told her that this wasn't my first rodeo; plenty of people named miranda try that trick on a regular basis.

and then i wrote 'a poem for sloan.' it's over in the poetry section if you want to take a gander.

do any of your allergies make for cool party tricks?

  1. no, i don't not have any allergies that make for cool party tricks. however, i will attest to the fun of feeding you sugar to get secrets. :) girl scout cookies work the best.
