-Computer Repair Guy, as he handed me back my "dead" computer
and authorized a full refund.
It had been a strange weekend.
The week before, my car had transformed from an able, roadworthy steed into a wheezing, growling monstrosity with a ruptured exhaust line. It was no secret that the past winter did a number on the undercarriage. Two seasons ago, winter had decided it wasn't worth the effort, and the roads were clear and generally snowless. But last year, winter came back with an axe to grind and dumped white product on us repeatedly, causing the highway department to freak and liberally administer what amounted to half an ocean's worth of salt onto the roads. The oxidation to my car's tender underbelly was considerable; at one point the area beneath the driver's side had corroded so hideously that insulation ballooned out from beneath and looked like a mangled p

Bringing cake and presents
And taking away all fear
Your one year older
Another year of memories
To add to your collection
Started and finished
Successful or not
It made you who you are today
Another year of new faces
And Old ones alike
A year is a long time to wait
For someone to say
Thank you for being born
But it's worth the wait
For happiness and gifts
But most of all
Family, friends and even strangers
Seem to catch your happiness
Through that day
And everyone is happier for it
So one year older
May seem like a pain
But it's something you'll miss when your
Birthday comes no more

Unfortunately the situation had been like this for a few days ever since it had been announced they would be receiving a transfer student. The entire class was curious as all they had been given was a name, Dilan Rembrant. Their curiosity however would soon come to an end because the new kid was scheduled to come that very day.A Girl Named Dilan5 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"I wonder what he looks like" one girl wondered dreamily.
"I hope he plays basketball" commented a boy to his friend, "We could use another player."

Everyone had their own opinions and ideas on what they thought the new student should be like and were sharing those opinions whether they were wanted or not. All noise stopped though when the door to the classroom opened.
