190 words (1-1.5 minutes)So I see you standing there with your black studded belt and tinted glasses and I know you lied to me. Because I can see it through your body language, through the way you hold your head high as if you really are the cats me-ow. You promised me you wouldnt change. Stay 100% original, no strings attached. Wed throw the ball around in the park and Id feel free, freer then I felt on the back of your Harley. Tim you always tried to be someone else, and I thought sometimes that maybe you were just to scared to be you. (Mad) And I hated you for it!! Here me, I detested you!! I loathed you with all my heart and soul.
(Quietly) But theres only a thin line between love and hate. I knew you didnt want to be that guy, and sometimes I blame the school. All those damn stereotypes that pinpoint us. Hes a nerd, hes a jock, hes a prep, why cant he just be damned Tim Hodgens? With his big blue eyes as clear as the sky and always curious, and that smile that lights up the whole room. ! Well you won. You got to be that Mr. Big, that dirty talker, that guy who everyone claims theyd trade shoes with in a minute. (Pause) But ,you lost me.
