It all began with a simple phone call one night after dinner, “Joe,” my father hollered up the stairs, “it’s for you. It’s Jackie, and she sounds upset.” As I stormed downstairs to pick up the phone, I was fuming. I was tired and had looked forward to a nice quiet evening at home, not another arbitrary adventure with Jackie. Thirty minutes later, however, Jackie’s silver Mustang convertible swung into our driveway, and Jackie was obnoxiously railing on her car horn before the car came to a full stop. Grabbing my coat from the couch, I walked through my front door with all the enthusiasm of a man going to stand before a firing squad. Honestly, I have no idea how to describe Jackie. Her spontaneous personality and in a continual need for extravagant adventures, put us in an avoidable situation. Last summer, the summer prior to senior year, Jackie, now 17, was obsessed with having no driving curfew; this legal consent gave Jackie the ability to indulge in her adventurous side of life. Being her best friend, I unfortunately, would be the first recruit for her adventures. Whenever I answered Jackie’s late-night phone calls, she would always start by saying, “you ready for another late-night adventure?” If I had a dime for each time I heard that phrase. “Eh, I guess,” was my common response. Except for one night, two days before our first last day of High School. With my dad calling me from downstairs and telling me that someone was on the phone, I immediately knew it was Jackie.
