Saturday morning the group sets out to go camping in the Alaskan wilds.
But---do I want to go? The stress of being around Dan has increased tenfold since this morning, when he sat next to me instead of Lauren and Kale on the opposite side of the room.

Why is it you dislike me? Because I am honest? because the truth hurts? or I called your bluff to support a statement with facts?
They say its good to be yourself? when I am myself, honest, and upfront, people get upset? a true double entendre as jules would put it.
So long and Thanks for all the fish!
