I once heard Patricia Kennealy-Morrison, say "everyone is somebody's groupie" (well read it on her blog once actually) It's a quote I have used a few times and one I pretty much live by.
I was getting stuff for supper, and for once the store was nearly dead, and I spotted two girls no more then about 15 years old trekking through the grocery giggling like mad; looking for someone. It's not difficult to figure out they were there for either Conrad or Zane.
Honestly, I did not stick around to find out. Both of whom were in the stock room in back.
Jealousy would have been my first thought, but when it wasn't, I shocked myself. What went through my mind first was defeat. Second, they're so young. Next was, I guess we make idiots of ourselves over men at any age. And last was, everyone has groupies. Then there was some jealousy and a slight bitterness.
Simply because, Conrad has been starting to pay some attention to me and Zane is forever pulling the staring -look away-stare-smile-look away-stare-walk past bumping into my shoulder- thing that guys like to do.
I know, it's like high school never ended.
The difference between myself and these girls is that they knocked on the door to the back room; and demanded attention, and that's something I'd never dream of doing. It's just not in me to be that bold.
