could have, e van lowe, White Whisker Books, Los Angeles. E Van Lowe 5, Chapter One, She was laughing, That s what I remember most about that night It was Sat. urday The sun had recently gone down It was still warm in. our old house but once the sun had finished setting I knew. we d be slipping into our snuggies That s how Januaries are in. the desert hot in the day freezing at night, We were seated at the chipped oak dining room table with. the mismatched chairs she was so embarrassed for company to. see We were polishing the silver and my mother was laughing. We love polishing the silver It s a mother daughter bond. ing thing we ve been doing as far back as I can remember. When I was younger we did it in the summer but since I d. been in high school we d been doing it over winter break. Ours is an antique set dating back to the early nineteen. hundreds that my mother got for a steal at an estate sale when I. was seven We go to lots of estate sales and yard sales and. garage sales Glendale calls itself the antique capital of Arizona. This distinction allows anyone with anything festering in their. attic or garage to drag it out onto their lawn on Saturday morn. ings and try to palm it off as an antique, Since my mother loves antiques you can find us on any. given Saturday inside some cowboy s grungy garage rumma. E Van Lowe 7, ging through his crap looking for the real deal She has an eye.
for the real stuff so no one can cheat her out of a bargain She. works for an art dealer She is also one of my best friends. Well she was before our lives went to hell in a hand basket. Guess I shouldn t use that word too freely around here Hell I. As we sat polishing away she casually said What would. you think of me going on a date, Umm you mean with a guy. Of course with a guy A man she said the beginnings of a. laugh bubbling out of her I don t have any prospects yet but. I ve been seeing all these dating sites on TV and thought why. not She looked at me trying to read my face, It was the first time she had mentioned another man since. my father had left ten years ago, Yeah why not I said through a thin smile although. what I was feeling was why, Why not she repeated soft laughter spilling out of her. like there was some new long awaited happiness to be dis. covered and she was brimming with the possibility of what. that happiness might be, I can t believe your mother s going on a date said Erin.
It was Sunday afternoon The next day We were seated at. the food court in the Glendale mall digesting my problem. along with a double order of curly fries, She hasn t found one yet I countered She s just talking. I swirled a curly fry into the glob of ketchup on my Styro. foam plate Hasn t she read any of those books or articles. about single parent dating Rule number one clearly states. sneak out behind your kid s back Keep us in the dark as long. as possible It s a good rule I popped the curly fry into my. In Suze s defense she s just trying to keep the lines of. communication open If she meets someone it s going to affect. your life too, All my friends call my mom Suze never Ms Barnett That s. how she likes it I call her Suze too but not to her face never to. her face I tried that once when I was ten and if looks could. kill I d currently be pushing daisies I think it s cool having a. mom everyone can call by her first name just not me. I know you re only trying to cheer me up Erin But telling. me my mother might meet somebody is not going to do it I. swirled another curly fry, Hey your mom s kind of hot I m sure she ll find lots of. dudes who want to go out with her This revelation came from. my other best friend Matt I ve known Matt since kindergarten. four years longer than I ve known Erin He was tall and slender. with a ready smile and shock of fuzzy red hair He was also an. Matt Erin said patiently Megan doesn t want her, mother going on a date That s why we re having this little. meeting Duh, Oh said Matt He looked from Erin to me letting her.
words wash over him, Matt was not the kind of boy you d normally expect us to be. hanging out with Aside from the fact that he was IQ chal. lenged Matt was a card carrying member of our school s in. crowd dubbed The Poplarati He was on the varsity football. team and the track team Erin and I were on the debate team. and the math team We were card carrying members of our. school s leper colony Yet ever since Suze and I arrived in Gl. endale and moved next door to the Dawsons Matt has always. been a part of my life I can t recall a memory that doesn t have. Why don t you want Suze to go on a date he asked, Are you kidding First off if anyone in my family should. be dating it should be me I m fifteen primo dating age How s. it going to look if my mother has a boyfriend and I don t. No one answered The three of us sat in silence consider. ing my problem, The mall had recently been remodeled Several upscale res. taurants had been added to the food court which they now. called the dining terrace as if by changing the name people. would forget they were at the Glendale mall But you could still. E Van Lowe 9, get a good burger and curly fries so the change was just fine. Then why not get your own boyfriend Matt said all of a. That was a no brainer Gee Matt let me see Maybe it s. because it s social suicide for anyone at school to date a math. lete And guess what I m a mathlete, But you re cute said Matt Then realizing he d committed.
the cardinal sin of complimenting a girl he looked away awk. wardly I mean you ve got the blue eyes and the one dimple. in your left check and His awkward eyes found Erin And. you re cute too You ve got the thing with your hair His. voice trailed off as he attempted to be the equal opportunity. looks evaluator, Yeah well at G U geek trumps looks I said disgusted. with my situation, And that thing with my hair is called bangs thank you. very much Erin was equally disgusted but hers was aimed at. Then maybe you should go out with someone on the math. Erin and I stared at him Matt knew good and well I wasn t. ever going out with anyone on the math team And it s not that. I m an elitist or anything like that I d just like to go out with a. cool popular guy for once And if he happens to look like. Taylor Lautner so be it, The Poplarati have no idea what the rest of us go through I. mean just because we re lepers doesn t mean we d ever date a. leper Those of us who occupy the lower links on the social food. chain have standards too even higher than The Poplarati be. cause our boyfriends not only have to be cute but they also. need to have an IQ higher than that of a titmouse Unfortu. nately at Glendale Union hitting the Dating Daily Double. looks and intelligence is a near impossibility, I don t see what s the big deal about Suze dating Matt. was now giving me the stink eye, Oh Would you like to listen to your mother talking about.
French kissing He screwed up his face as the image invaded. his thoughts, His expression softened But you and Suze are so close I. don t have that kind of relationship with my mom I wish I. Me too Erin was looking at me with the same expression. I used on her when I was trying to make her feel guilty about. Come on guys she s my mother I said with an exasper. ated sigh Can I really tell her that while we re snuggled up on. the sofa watching Spider Man Three I m secretly undressing. James Franco with my eyes Of course not These things I keep. from her for her own good And likewise there are things she. should keep from me I don t care if she wants to go on a date I. just don t want to know about it, That wasn t exactly true I did care about her going on a. date But if I told them how I really felt I d appear selfish. Erin reached for the ketchup It s just that you re lucky to. have a mother who s your friend The only time my mother. ever talks to me is when she s telling me to clean my room do. my homework or stay away from boys not necessarily in that. order She squirted a big red blob onto her plate, It was then the answer I was looking for came to me. triggered by something Erin had said Hey remember when. your mom didn t want you riding in cars with boys She told. you horror stories about what could happen, Yeah That was so lame. Why don t I do the same thing I ll tell her a graphic hor. ror story about some parent at our school who went on a date. and was never heard from again That ll scare her off dating. I don t like it said Erin, Me either said Matt I think Suze getting a boyfriend is.
a good idea, I ignored both their responses Then it s settled I m doing. Megan Erin s tone turned serious If you re uncomfort. able with your mother dating maybe you should just tell her. I shook my head You guys have a lot to learn about open. relationships, E Van Lowe 11, Chapter Two, Pythagoras the famous Greek philosopher is known for. being the first person to demonstrate the theorem that with any. right triangle the sum of the squares of both sides is equal to. the square of the hypotenuse A B C What most people. don t know is Pythagoras also stated It is evil to eat beans. The sad fact that this useless bit of information resides in. my brain is one of the many contributing factors as to why I do. not have a boyfriend I m a trivia junkie I can t help myself Put. a useless piece of information in front of me and I will gobble it. up like a double cheeseburger with a side of curly fries. Cute boys like girls who are into fashion magazines and lip. gloss not mathematical equations and trivia So imagine my. surprise when our first day back at school after winter break a. really cute boy walked into the Math Lab, Don t get me wrong cute boys walk into the Math Lab all. the time However as soon as they discover they re in a room. crawling with geeks they realize their mistake and make a. hasty exit, I was at the chalkboard with Erin working through a prob. lem using a logarithm and trust me I am well aware that my. use of logarithms has solidified my place in the annals of geek. dom forever but humor me here, E Van Lowe 13, Hottie at three o clock whispered Erin digging her elbow.
into my side, I turned and there he was a cute boy standing just inside. the doorway This cute boy was different from all the others. who d come before him This cute boy was acting like he inten. ded to stay, I m looking for the Math Lab he said as he surveyed the. room There were seven of us in all not including Mrs Brew. ster in the back Five boys who followed the geek dress code to. the letter all the way down to the black socks they wore with. their uncool sneaks Erin and me, Who wants to know asked Erin I swear that girl could. go from zero to flirt in six point five seconds, He smiled It was a confident smile He had a lot to be con. fident about He was basketball player tall with jet black hair. and the kind of dark dreamy eyes you could look into forever. It was obvious from the way he carried himself that he d been. flirted with before Erin s question Who wants to know. would have sent most male mathletes scurrying for cover but. not this boy, The future captain of The Glendale Mathletes he said in.
response His smile widened, Geoffrey Tran and the other math geeks stared up at him. from behind their glasses their faces twisted into tight little. knots G U s male mathletes were very protective of Erin and. me not that they d ever try flirting with us themselves They. had enough trouble just standing next to us without sweating. out their undershirts, Tran is captain of the mathletes I said adding my two. cents and then I smiled It was supposed to be a mysterious. seductive smile but my mouth froze into a toothy grin I have. practiced that seductive smile in the mirror like a zillion times. to perfection and the first time I try using it on a real boy I. wind up looking like the Joker, The new boy looked at me Interesting smile. Is that laughter in his eyes Is he laughing at me, You must be Guy Mrs Brewster called from the back of. the room Welcome to the Glendale Union Mathletes Come. on I ll introduce you around, At the time I was happy that a cute boy was joining the.
mathletes especially since I was in the market for a cool cute. boyfriend I didn t find it strange that a boy so handsome and. sure of himself would be hanging around geeks My mistake. E Van Lowe 15, Chapter Three, With my mother working every day and me off with the. mathletes and the debate team after school weekday dinners at. our house were usually catch as catch can Take out was the. norm Or sometimes I d make burgers or enchilada pie which. was my specialty But on some evenings Suze would bring in.
