BLACK SOCKS THEY NEVER GET DIRTY THE LONGER YOU WEAR THEM THE STRONGER THEY GET! ONCE I THOUGHT I SHOULD WASH THEM THEN I DECIDED NO, NOT YET!

EMILY

I feel like we should kiss.

Why?

Because we both need to get it out of the way. And we’re best friends.

That doesn’t seem like a good enough reason.

Why not?

Aren’t we supposed to feel something?

Like what?

I don’t know.

Are you talking about a boner? I can’t have a boner.

Not a boner.

Well then what?

Romance?

What do you know about romance? You were watching Puppy Dog Pals yesterday.

I’ve thought about holding a girl’s hand.

With your boner?

No. In Paris. Girls are supposed to like Paris.

That’s clique.

Cliché?

No clique.

French.

Explicit.

Implicit.

Exclusive.

Oui.

BLAKE

OFFa.

Yeah?

I’m going to sneak out of camp tonight.

Why?

There’s a meteor shower.

Why do you have to sneak out?

I’m going to meet someone.

Who?

A boy.

What boy?

Your mom.

My mom is not a boy.

Evan Davis.

Why Evan Davis?

I don’t know. Why not? I have a hot pink mini skirt.

Evan Davis is scum.

How would you know?

The guy doesn’t even know how to play chess.

What does chess have to do with anything?

Everything.

I think I’m going to kiss him.

Why?

Why not?

French?

Maybe.

He doesn’t brush his teeth. I’m sure of it.
