The narrator is reminiscing about the summer when he was fourteen and went on a date with his crush, Sheila Mant.
I remember that summer so clearly... It was so weird, I was so young and dumb. She was so stunning and way out of my league.
The narrator is nervous but manages to successfully ask Sheila Mant out. From this very moment we notice Shelia's intentions when she asks about the car.
Sure, sounds good.
Hey, How do you feel about going to a concert in Dixfor? Pick you up at 9?
When the narrator goes to pick up Sheila Mant at her house, they are both unsure of what is to happen. She is worried about the canoe situation and he is worried about everything being perfect.
Are you sure you don't wanna go in my dad's car?
Totally! T he parking is terrible over there and we'll get there faster by canoe.
Without giving it a second thought, the narrator had baited the fishing line and let it in the water. Since he let the line out in the water, he had caught a fish. This wasn't an ordinary fish, this fish was fighting him. He simultaneously finds out Shelia Mants opinion and dislike of fishing.
OMG! I hate fishing so much! It sucks so much.
*thinking* Wth is going on? Can this get even worst?
While Sheila is awkwardly sitting there, no clue on what's actually happening, the narrator makes the tough decision of cutting the bass loose and continuing with the date. They head to their final destination, the concert.
So... who's going to be there? Spill the tea sis!
*thinking* Omg! What should I do? What should I do? Loose the girl of the fish?
They go to the concert and have a good time. The narrator ends up with no girl or bass since Shelia decides to go in Eric Castwells corvet. This teaches him a lesson of always being himself and never changing for anyone.
You are such a funny kid! I had a good time, but I am leaving with Eric! Bye!
