I had never been sailing before and unfamiliar tasks always stressed me out. He parked the car and advanced forward and made small talk with my parents. He assured them he would drive safely and take good care of me up north for the week. I believed he would. After hugging and kissing them both, I loaded my small duffle bag into the back with Mike.

    Melissa dragged out the first bag from the big dumpster and poured it into the bathtub. It was a mushy mess and smelled as if someone died. In the tub there was tons of rubbery hamburger patties left, soggy fries and mushy bananas. We did this four more times, and found absolutely nothing besides leftovers and tons of unopened milk cartoons. In our boredom of trying to find my retainers, we created a fun game. We would open each milk carton and pour each one out over all the mush, it was quite…

Cramming in our oversized bags, only two could fit in the trunk of our small white sedan. The sedan was about as small as a smart car. We decided to put the remaining bags at our feet. “Shotgun,” I yelled. In the back of my mind, I knew calling for the front passenger seat was a bad idea when I saw one of the duffle bag taking up the whole…
