My day began like any other day. I had a friend stay with me the night with me, so we woke up, walked outside and smoked a cig. We were just standing talking about how wild the night before got. I asked Slim, “You ready to do it again tonight?” He said, Hell yea! You already know!”(Laughing and smiling while saying it). After we got done smoking we walked inside and ate us some breakfast .For a while we just sat around the house, watched TV, and played the game. A few hours later my boy Big Nate showed up at the house. We sat there and talked for a minute trying to figure out what we wanted to do that night. We decided to call our friend Roach up to see what he was doing. Roach said, “I’ll be over there about dark time. I have a half a gallon of CLC so; we are riding around and drinking!” The sun started going down we heard Roach pull up. Me, Slim, and Nate walked outside and talked to Roach. We decided to pile in Nate’s F350 and dipped out. We all walked in the store got us a mixer and a tall glass of ice. After we mixed our drinks my friend Trez called me and asked to come get him. For a little while we just road dirt roads and drank. Trez said, “Hey bruh lets go to the spot.” So we went to the spot, sat there, and rolled some smoke. About an hour went by and we were all about half lit. We had to take Trez back home (he lives in town). I said, “Nate, let me drive.” He threw me the keys and we left. When we got to to his house something said’ “Dylan, You might need to get in the passengers seat.” I got out and let Nate drive. Not even a minute later a cop got behind us and pulled us over. Everybody started hiding there drinks except Slim. Slim said, “Hell boys!! It don’t make a damn anymore, we already caught.” So the officer walked up to the window and asked Nate to step out of the truck. He said the reason we were pulled over is cause no tag light. Luckily I knew the

    It was a cold stormy night. The house was still. I was lying in bed when I heard a series of knocks at the door. As I descended the stairs the knocks were getting louder and louder. I thought to myself, "Who could be at the door this late at night?" When I opened the door there was a tall man dressed all in black. He smelled of fish and looked like he just walked out of a mud pit. He was having car troubles and needed to use the phone. I invited him in and told him that the phone was down the hall in the living room. Instead of calling the tow truck he called his friend, George, to come pick him up. I invited him to have a cup of coffee and some cookies while he waited for his friend to pick him up. We talked for about an hour when there was another knock at the door.…
