    Keith's MP3 High Low


    "I wish I never listened to the guys.  It all started out as fun, drinking beer and cruising around the school at night.  We mess around a couple of nights a week and never got caught.  One night, we got pulled over by the cops, I was driving and had 3 buddies in the car with me.  We drank a full six pack and still had the empty bottles in the car.  A soon as I heard the siren I knew we were busted.  I wound up in jail for 24 hours.  My parents had to hire a lawyer and we all had to go to court.  My coach found out and I got thrown off the football team.  I lost my part-time job cause I didn't show up for work that night.   I just started the job and was saving money toward my new car.  Instead, the judge ordered me to pay a $250 fine and I had to do 50 hours of community service by running errands for senior citizens in my neighborhood.  What a mess for me and my family.  I'm graduating in a few months and my parents had promised to give me a down payment for my car, but now that car is out of the question.  I won't let my friends talk me into drinking and driving ever again.

If you were smart you would've gone to drink at the park, who the hell is at the park at midnight? That's right, NO ONE.
