It didn’t matter to me, frankly. I wasn’t into boys or Snoopy WoodStock and Chair Brown Star Wars Christmas shirt. On top of this, Mike and I had nothing in common. I was into books, poetry, art, and fashion. Mike vehemently believed that reading was for nerds and his idea of conversation was making fun of geeks and dorks and telling the lower class freshmen to do favors for him. He wasn’t a bad person. He could be very kind and extremely funny, and he was objectively good-looking, with light green eyes and a smirky-smile, the kind that seemed to tell you that he shared a secret with you and only you. I never developed a crush on him, but slowly began to get used to his attention and unfortunately began to derive value from this attention.

Best Snoopy WoodStock and Chair Brown Star Wars Christmas shirt
I liked the idea of someone having a Snoopy WoodStock and Chair Brown Star Wars Christmas shirt. It made me feel pretty and interesting, especially at an age where the world and my own brain seemed to tell me that I was not pretty and wholly uninteresting. This tug of war between his attentions and my dismissals finally came to a skidding end one day, about 4 months into the beginning of our friendship, if you could even call it that. He seemed hurt to me. I thought I would break his heart if I didn’t take the necklace, so I did, believing, in my girlish and somewhat egotistical naivety, that I was doing a noble thing, feeling like a girl in the books I devoured or the movies I watched, caught in the snares of unrequited love, kind, understanding, loved, wanted.
