Teaser Tuesday is a weekly feature, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading.

"I don't know what to do with myself. Every day, I have this feeling of not knowing what to do." Nora stops, swallows. "It feels like I'm in a swimming pool filed with tar, with a three-hundred-pound backpack on. It takes everything I have just to stay afloat. And I don't know if that's okay. Do you fake it more?

In front of me in the line is Bret Jennings. I try and make myself as unnoticeable as possible, because the last time I saw Bret, I spilled the majority of my orange juice on his sneakers.
"Hey, Molly," he says.
So much for unnoticeable.
"Oh, hey. How are you?"
"Drier than the last time you saw me."
Oh, jokes. He has jokes.
