Hello. My name is Jay Kepler and I'm writing this blog for extra credit in English Composition. Mrs. Hackle, my English teacher, always says write what you know, so I guess I'll just write about my not very exciting life.
Or I can write about Abby Jensen.
Everybody thinks we're dating or something because we hang out together all the time, but we're just friends. Really. I have no additional feelings for Abby besides friendship. Nada. None. Nyet.
Abby's 16th Birthday is coming up soon and it's such a big deal to her, the pressure is really on to find a gift that lives up to the occasion. Do you know what would happen if I got the wrong gift? Have you ever seen one of those movies where the earth is being destroyed by aliens or volcanoes or too much plastic being tossed into the landfills and life as we know it ceases to exist? It would be like that. Only with more tears.
If you're reading this and you have any good ideas, I'd love to hear them because I have to get her the perfect gift. Because Abby & I are just friends. And only friends.
