By third period, it's all over the school how Madison broke up with Dick by way of a knee to the groin.
A few days of monitoring Logan tells me the following: He's almost never home.
Goal #1 - Make it to the police station, where I can report the crime. I slip out onto Logan's balcony, making sure that the door doesn't lock behind me.
The first thing you should know is that Southerners are prone to hyperbole.
And just because y’all can’t always understand what we’re saying, doesn’t mean we’re not making total sense.
Before I leave the estate, I plant a tracking device on the XTerra. As I approach the hallway where Logan and I have our lockers, I see him leaning against his own, surrounded by a group of minions. Logan is the last to be alerted to my presence, and when he does see me, he looks me up and down in a distinctly nonsexual manner. Then I turn to my locker on the opposite side of the hall.
On my way home, I make a detour to the high school. I see guilt in his eyes, but it's far too late for that. Somebody has scrawled SLUT across the door in a Sharpie. "Count me in."I'm not surprised to find a slashed tire on my Le Baron after school, courtesy of Dick Casablancas.
This list covers some of the main phrases you’ll hear.
If it sounds like we might be exaggerating, we probably are, but it’s just for effect. Service road; the road that allows you entrance to the highway. Most always said sarcastically in response to someone being offensive (i.e., if you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say it at all).
If you’re looking to decode Southern slang, then you came to the right place. This has nothing do with physical appearance — instead it means misbehaving.
Whether you’ve got a Southern relative or friend, or are just looking for some pointers before a trip down south, we’ve put together a list of phrases you’re likely to hear.
Luckily, some of the clubs and extracurriculars meet on Sundays, so the school is unlocked. We don't do , of course, but since no Kung Fu master has arrived to teach me the Five-Point-Palm Exploding-Heart technique, my vengeance will need to be more psychological in nature. There is a strange sort of pleasure to be found in being a smart, resourceful girl, having absolutely nobody left to alienate. I turn back around to face Logan."You see this, Logan? Logan is already watching, but looks surprised that I'm speaking to him publicly."That's I've prepared ahead of time for Logan's first lesson. "Um...depends on what the project is.""The complete and utter destruction of the 09ers? I take a picture of the tire with my phone, and send it as a text to Logan with the caption "That's two." Although Logan will pay for this, that does not mean that Dick is off the hook.
I plant another voice-activated audio bug on the ledge above Logan's locker. That is what I'm greeted with when I arrive at school on Monday. Logan used his computer last night to research and write his World History report. I'm trying to remember Weevil's instructions for changing tires, when the man himself stops by to give me a refresher course.
The driver of the truck can't seem to take the hint. I hate her for allowing Logan to abuse her the first time. I'm not quite strapless red satin, but I'm a long way from yellow cotton. Taking down Logan Echolls will require good intel, such as: knowing everything he does, everywhere he goes, and everything he says. The device I plug into the USB port installs an undetectable spy program.
