My name is Kristina Georgia Snow. I am a high school junior.   I haven't seen my dad.  No calls, no cards, no presents.  I am off to see my dad for the first time in eight years.  As I got in his 1992 Geo, which was pink under the primer, we attempted small talk.  As we were driving to his apartment I smelled oil in the air.  On top of that I can smell his nasty Marlboro cigarettes that he is smoking.  I feel like I am going to suffocate with all of the fumes coming my way.  As soon as we reach the parking lot to his apartment complex I hurry up and jump out to breathe in the hot humid air. 

From the looks of it this place is no castle.  Maybe I have made a mistake coming here. But as I was walking up the second flight of stairs I see him, my white knight.  He has a hot body, a six pack for abs, a baby face to make the angels sing and a smile.  He is so not my type.  I went inside and dad told me he had to go to work, he works at a bowling alley.  I don’t understand why he can’t take just one day off?  Dad offered for me to go with him but I opted out.  I would rather just sit here and watch television.  But come to find out…….he didn’t pay his cable bill.  I travel back to the time when mom and dad were still together.  It wasn’t a pretty sight.  But I will see where my visit will take me.

Until next time……
