This boy Harrison, whose parents were friends with my parents, always told me how he firmly believed that he and his friends would be the first ones in our grade to get laid. They also thought that they were more privileged than anyone else, since their parents were green enough to offer to buy them condoms. At least they promoted safe sex.

Like it never existed. Of course they’ll be times when you get close to showing your friends who you really are, but it wouldn’t matter if you did.
