The Thoughts of a High Schooler on a Date Who Isn't Sure if "Make Out Point" Is a Real Place or Not

  1. God, Grace is so pretty. This is amazing. Can't believe she said yes. Now drive her home. End it, Tyler. You aren't worthy. You are no good. You are pathetic. Grace Teller will never like you.
  2. "So... I guess I should drive you home?"
  3. Real cool, Tyler. Real cool. Being perpetually unsure is really attractive.
  4. What.
  5. She smiled and said "or we could go somewhere private and talk some more, like Make Out Point."
  6. Then she just laughed. Laugh too, Tyler.
  7. Not that loud.
  8. "Make Out Point it is then."
  9. Woah.
  10. Is that a real place?
  11. No, right? She just meant a place to make out.
  12. Like the parking lot behind a CVS.
  13. Unless it is a real place, and I just agreed to go to it.
  14. I'm driving nowhere.
  15. DUDE, GRACE TELLER WANTS TO MAKE OUT WITH YOU.
  16. Ok, but I only have so many red lights to figure out where I'm going.
  17. Roll the windows down and blast a classic rock song.
  18. Oh thank God, Journey. We can pretend like we know the words while I figure this out.
  19. Text Danny. He will know.
  20. Don't text and drive, Tyler.
  21. It's a red light.
  22. Pretty sure those ads still don't want you texting at a red light.
  23. "STREET LIGHTS. PEOPLE."
  24. Typing... "Yo... is... make out point a real place?"
  25. It sent "makes it point."
  26. Text him again. Make out point.
  27. I CAN'T BELIEVE GRACE TELLER WANTS TO MAKE OUT WITH ME.
  28. I mean, dinner at the Silver Diner was ok, and she laughed at my lacrosse bus stories.
  29. "A SINGER IN A SMOKY ROOM. Oh wait, no that was earlier. WORKING HARD TO GET MY FILL."
  30. Learn the song, you stupid moron.
  31. I guess I'm taking a left here?
  32. Grace is singing. She gave no indication if that was correct or not.
  33. Make Out Point can't be a real specific place. That only exists in, like, 50's TV shows, right?
  34. Unless it does. And I am a child for not knowing.
  35. Is there a mountain nearby?
  36. Don't scan the horizon for mountains, Tyler. You know there are no mountains. You live here.
  37. Maybe like a tall hill?
  38. Can I Google "make out point Bethesda Maryland" and see if something comes up?
  39. Danny texted back. Don't let Grace see.
  40. Yep. "HAHAHHAHHAHA."
  41. Thanks, Danny.
  42. Was that a laugh because I don't know where Make Out Point is or a laugh because I think it may be a real place?
  43. Another left. Sure.
  44. The song is over, but Grace instantly found another song on the radio she knows. God, she's cool.
  45. If Make Out Point existed, wouldn't the cops shut it down?
  46. Maybe that's why it's secret, Tyler.
  47. No. There is no Make Out Point. Just drive somewhere secluded.
  48. Is church parking lot too weird?
  49. Yes. Take a left.
  50. Maybe a public park? Do those close at night? They do, right?
  51. Lots of middle schools to choose from. But is that worse than a church?
  52. I don't want to be caught by a priest. Or, like, my second grade teacher working late.
  53. I could find a playground.
  54. Why is every empty parking lot at night filled with children during the day?
  55. Wait, are people hooking up every night at playgrounds?
  56. What are we letting children play on?
  57. Grace just asked where we are going.
  58. Which is fair because we are now back at the Silver Diner, you idiot.
  59. Pull over.
  60. "Um..."
  61. Kim was messing with you when she said Grace had a crush on you. You never should have asked her out. You are out of your depth and now she knows. You are a failure. You barely made varsity lacrosse.
  62. "IS MAKE OUT POINT A REAL PLACE?"
  63. No, Tyler, stop, don't be raw and unguarded-
  64. "I JUST, I REALLY LIKE YOU, and I'm sorry for yelling, thank you for turning Fleetwood Mac down. Was that Fleetwood Mac? To be honest, I don't really know old music. Anyway, you mentioned Make Out Point and I didn't know if that was a real place or not so I've been trying to figure it out without looking like an idiot, which I now do. Sorry."
  65. SHE'S KISSING YOU, DUDE. GRACE TELLER IS KISSING YOU.
  66. LESS TONGUE, TYLER. ACT LIKE YOU'VE BEEN THERE BEFORE.
  67. THIS IS AMAZING.
  68. Ok, how long does this last?
  69. I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS IS HAPPENING.
  70. Oh, ok, she's done.
  71. She's smiling and said "so..." Pretty sure you have to respond to that with another "so..."
  72. "So...."
  73. Silent. Ok, now I think I have to say something.
  74. "I have to know..."
  75. "Does Make Out Point exist?"
  76. God, she has a great smile.
  77. HOLY SHIT IT DOES EXIST. LET'S GO.
