owners manual You know the WARNING page at the beginning that mentions all the dangers This morning Ive got a new one to add to the growing list that would come with mine Dont let nerd boy cut his own hair I could add at 3 freakin a.m on a school night, but really, any time would have been a bad idea They say that everything always looks better in the morning Well, they lie As I blink through this 7 something a.m sunlight blaring through my bathroom window, all I see in the mirror is irreparable damage and, over on my drawing table, the art inspiration for my hair massacre When its late at night and the world finally leaves me alone, I shut my bedroom door, settle down, and draw People talk about how when they smoke pot or take some other crap or whatever, they go somewhere else in their head Well, the feel of a 3B pencil skimming across the papers surface, trying to control that tiny resistance to the graphite leaving its mark, lifts me up to a world I create Thats my zone I completely escape So there I was last night with my best pencils and inking pens all lined up, an epic video game soundtrack in my headphones, plenty of Dr Pepper at the ready, and my calico cat, Harley Quinn, asleep under my drawing table lamp She was kinda curled up right smack in the way, but thats okay We understand each other I started sketching and, after a couple hours, was speeding along on drawing a new comic panel of my secret superhero creation Graphite I set up a website for him a couple years ago, which has a nice little following out there But its anonymous Just two people on earth know the sites mine, and my only two friends would never tell a soul Crafting the details of my world takes time, so I dont update the site very often But when I do finish a comic sequence its cause for whoopin it up or, it seems, grabbing the nearest scissors I was so loving how Id drawn Graphites hair to flip up in such a perfect way that, in my caffeinated, sugared up, sleep deprived stupor, I lost it Possessed by this delusional superhero side of me, I just knew I could re create that hair on myself with craft scissors Actually, with slightly rusted and gummed up with bits of tape craft scissors even though my good pair was just a drawer away Starting with my bangs, I was soon snipping along, moving around the sides I may be a good artist, but hair is a tricky material, especially when one is being an idiot It went scary wrong So in my continued brilliance I set out to fix what Id already done by tiptoeing around and searching for Dads electric hair buzzer I found it My repair job didnt quite work out how Id hoped So basically, in the middle of the night I became a toddler And here I am now, applying globs of hair goop from every container I have and that I could sneak out of Moms bathroom after she left for work But all this stuff only darkens my copper brown hair , making the missing chunks scream out I need hair cement, but I got nothin Whats thick and sticky maybe toothpaste Stupid, I know, but Im desperate Hey, yeah, it kinda works Oh, god, no it doesnt It just adds glittery blue sparkles CRAP From my bed, C 3POs muffled voice moans, Were doomed Digging through the sheets, I find my phone Text from Audrey Hey boy, just seeing ur text from 3AM U certifiable WTF Howz the new do I roll my shoulders, which pop, then type Im very talented Wait till u see in person Audrey Lordy Im scared Those selfies u sent would wake the dead which you look like Me YOURE scared Audrey What were u thinking, Adrian Youre 16, not 6 Shoulda consulted with me first You need a fashion chaperone Me If u say so Audrey Chill Maybe not so bad in person after all, youre the superhero, Graphite Boy Yeah, right I type See you before first period Audrey If i can apply my face in time Me ok Well, what did I expect from her Shes never even had one strand of hair out of place, much less sculpted a topographical map on her own head Howd it get to be almost time to go Ive gotta hurry Dammit, Im better than this Im so careful about blending into the backgroundhowd I slip up like this I dump my whole shirt drawer on the bed and apply what I know about color psychology Blue is true, white is pure, red is angry or sexy Purple is regal and commanding Maybe I still have that purple T shirt Here it is Oh, yeah With Super Grover crashing into a streetlamp printed on it Not so commanding I toss it to the floor The mound o shirts moves and a pair of jade eyes peers at me from between the folds Comfy I say Harley Quinn blinks at me Thats it camouflage I dont mean the army kind, too aggressive I need the animal kind that blends into its surroundings to avoid predators The school lockers are taxi yellow, the hallway tile is navy blue, the cafeteria is eggshell white, so, what plaid This is insane I go for my usual smoky gray, psychologically meaning death, depression, and nothingness To a gray T shirt, I add faded jeans, cheap old sneakers, and a gray hoodie my almost perfect cloak of high school invisibility Like any good freak superhero wannabe, Im an expert at fading into the background However, Im neither super nor hero Just freak My drawing table is piled up like a crime scene, so I shove everything into my mess of a desk Oh, god, not this In the bottom drawer I uncover the piece I entered in that Freshman Art Show two years ago It was my best work way back then I called it Renaissance Hero I worked so freakin hard on it, but it didnt win anything Instead, some a hole vandalized it, scrawling across it what other kids always thought of my art I never showed anything at school again In fact, that was the last time I signed my name on my art And now Im about to waltz into school with my latest masterpiece attached to the top of my head I put my old, defaced drawing back, cover it up with stuff, and shut the desk drawer Then I tuck away last nights Graphite drawing between pages sixty six and sixty seven of Michelangelo at the Louvre My parents wouldnt think to look at my art books Not that theyd even bother to come in here, but you never know Why did I hang this Power to the Geek poster so high on the back of my bedroom door Whenever I leave, Geek stares me right in the face Like I need reminding I replace Moms hair goop, and then up goes my hood and I hustle down the hall, past the gallery of old framed photos of little kid me My stomach still gets queasy seeing the one of me squealing with Mom and Dad, taken as we plummeted down the big drop of that massive Six Flags roller coaster Back thenwhen Dad used to be Dad and, well, we did thingswe actually took family pictures I stop and try to straighten the photo frame, but it just wants to hang crooked So I dash to the front door, grab the knob, and yell, Bye, Dad Yup Dad twists in his recliner to glance at me from the living room, giving me his half assed wave I step outside and shut the door Here we go It may be October, but in Rock Hollow, this hometown slice o heaven, its still hot, and this hoodie over my head doesnt help Even though its a quick walk to school, I slip my backpack off my shoulders and carry it to avoid a lovely bag shaped sweat stain In picturesque places Ive never been to, a few leaves on the ground at the beginning of fall probably mean a gorgeous, colorful autumn is on the way But here, the horrific Texas summer drought has pretty much killed everything, so the dead leaves are just dead leaves, all starting to texture the front yards of sickly pea green grass One last corner to turn and this is it Glorious Rock Hollow High.Draw the Line is a mind blowing riot of a good time A perfect book for fans of 21st century sci fi and superheroes that needs to be a movie right now Jonathan
