KING DORK: Make-out Fake-out

So I am in the middle of reading King Dork by Frank Portman, and it's just so hilarious that I don't want it to end. I'm actually listening to it on my way to work (and okay at work too...) and I feel like I'm having a conversation with this kid Tom Henderson - albeit a one sided conversation as I do not talk to my books on cd - about the unpleasantness of high school. He is such a real character, it's amazing. Cailin hasn't read this yet and probably won't because it's a 'boy' book and she doesn't like to read 'boy' books (again with the misguidedness).

Probably the most humiliating thing this kid has endured (besides an accidental indecent exposure in gym) is the 'make-out fake-out.' This is possibly the meanest thing I have ever heard of. It works like this: Poor innocent Tom is approached by a girl he would call normal, which means she is mostly accepted by the in-crowd. She professes her undying love for him. Of course Tom, although admittedly surprised by this girl's interest, is psyched, feeling like he has inadvertently climbed the ladder of popularity and is no longer an untouchable. The charade does not last long and ends in everyone laughing at gullible, even more untouchable, Tom. If I was 14yrs old...a student at his high school...and not already happily married - I'd definitely ask him out. And I'd mean it.
