After dropping out of high school my junior year and quickly moving to another city I lost touch with a lot of my good friends. One of my best friends was Brittney. Her and I were friends since 7th grade. She has this huge laugh that would get everybody else laughing as well.

When I got a job at a craft store I learned that Brittney worked there as well. Our boss lovingly nick-named us Frick and Frack. We were the youngest two working in this store and we had a blast. The store closed at 9 pm but then we had to stay until 10:30 to clean it up. Usually it was only one person but on occasion Frick and I would be together for closing. We never actually got a whole lot done in the closing time because we would be playing hide-and-go seek in the store. She used to scare the shit out of me sometimes by coming up behind me when I was putting away fabric.

After I quit the job at the fabric store I got some news about Brittney. Apparently there had been an undercover cop in our high school who was going to parties and eventually busted a whole bunch of kids for illegal activities. Brittney was the only girl to get arrested out of, I think, 16 people. I never spoke to her after this happened. Not because I didn't want to, but because I didn't know how to get a hold of her.

I still think about her, and her laugh. I have a lot of friends I've lost touch with and it kills me everyday.


  1. I found you through blog explosion. I just wanted to say that there are so many friends I've lost touch with and I think about them every so often. None of them have done anything as exciting as gotten arrested, though!

  2. That's sad. You could try looking for her today. Start with using online phone books and her full name. Court and jail records are public I believe, so you could hunt those to find out when she was released (if she did time), and sometimes they record where the person was going to afterwards.

    Found you thru BE also. :)
