My history class was starting group projects and I was so excited that my teacher put me in a group with my crush. We were going to spend the afternoon starting our research, which meant a whole afternoon with him! We were sitting at a table in the library, and each time I looked up from book, I noticed he was staring at me. I tried to play it cool and act like I was totally focused on my reading. While I was looking through one of my books, he started talking to me. I figured he was going to ask about the project, but boy, was I wrong. He looked at me and said, "Is there lettuce... in your hair?" I looked down and saw a little green leaf that must have fallen out of my sandwich at lunch. I quickly ran to the bathroom and brushed it out. When I got back to the library, I spent the rest of the afternoon buried in my book and avoiding any eye contact with him. Next time we do group research, I will be sure to check my hair for any stray food!
