For Fred, who keeps my home fires burning, oh, so very bright.
I wrote this story based on the call for submission. Cleis was looking for trucker stories and I thought about a hot trucker I had seen once at a truck stop. I wondered what it would have been like to take a summer off in college and drive across country with him and, well, this story may or may not have really happened.
The summer I turned nineteen I got a job as a bus boy at a crappy little truck-stop diner just outside my college town. I hated the job, the bitchy waitresses, the asshole owner, and most of the customers. There was one guy, however, who always nodded, smiled, and said hi to me.
