Jackie, High School

It would take Jackie three hours to get ready for school each morning. She tried to explain to her guidance counselor, hoping to get a schedule that started with 3rd period, but no one cared. She had to drop out. Before she dropped out, we'd all meet before 3rd period between classes and smoke and wonder where Jackie was, and then we'd go down to her house during 4th. She'd be sitting in the tub smoking a cigarette, reading a romance novel. The water would be tepid. She'd been in the tub since nine.

Jackie looked just like Cherie from the Runaways.
