I don't often think about this incident, but it popped into my mind yesterday after hearing Bush's "Machinehead". Let me explain.
Back in middle school, I would leave my tiny, sleepy UP town every summer for about a week and visit my cousin in "the city" (which was really more like a bigger town). On one such adventure, when I was 14 or 15, I met a boy, we'll call him Dave*. He was cute, and rebellious, and liked me, so we were relatively inseparable for a few days.
