#2: I’M FIRST
for Hunter H., in North Carolina
January 28, 2010
KEVIN and MARCIA are running late to class. They stop outside the classroom door.
I’m going in first.
No you aren’t. I am.
Whoever’s last has to stay after to clean the board. I can’t stay, I have another class right after.
But it’s your fault we’re late. You don’t untie your shoes when you take them off and it takes you forever to get them untied before you go out the door. I’m going in first.
No, we’re late because you spend like 45 minutes straightening your hair when everyone else in the house needs to shower. I’m going in first. You can go fuck yourself.
KEVIN goes inside. MARCIA pulls out her phone and sends KEVIN a text. MARCIA leaves.
In class, KEVIN gets a text message. He discreetly looks at his phone.
TEXT MESSAGE FROM MARCIA:
Cutting class. You’re last, bitch.
