This week’s cliche is . . .

The best friend love interest with oblivious consequences

If the people walking around my school were that oblivious we would have gotten our federal funding yanked ASAP.  If you’ve got a bestie of the opposite sex and they have feelings for you, it’s usually pretty obvious.  Unless your head is wedged firmly up your own love interest’s ass.  I had a couple of male friends that had some level of interest in me.  If you’re even half as observant as a lobotomized chimp you can tell they look at you differently, pay attention to you differently, act a little differently around you.  It’s there if you’re willing to see it.  If not then denial can be a really strong thing.

What about you?  What was it like in your school?  Leave your link in the comments!
