I froze. Directly facing me was Olympic swimmer, Jay Morningstar… and I just made an idiot of myself.
The rest of the table looked up to see me standing there with my mouth practically gaping. His coach, who I recognized from TV interviews, and even two other swimmers from the Olympic team... they didn't say anything, they didn't even blink.
"Uh… I mean…"
I couldn't even put together my words and Jay Morningstar was just staring at me with that Wheaties box smile and those icy blue eyes.
What was I supposed to say? Sorry I just made a weird noise, it's just that I have a poster of you on my wall where you are wearing nothing more than your gold medals, a smile, and a pair of man panties?

Edge of Glory
Friendship, Texas #1
Some girls have all the luck and some girls spend New Year's Eve working at their parents' restaurant.
"Order up, Lia."
I turned toward the kitchen just as a wave of steam from a plate of linguini rose up and hit me in the face like a giant, pungent cloud.
"Ack." I vigorously wiped my eyes and hoped I didn't have dough underneath my fingernails that would blind me.
"Sonny, can you warn me next time you are about to put down a plate of food?"
"Ey, I said order up," My brother, Sonny, yelled over the clanging of pots and pans. The only thing I could see was the top of his head and the shine on his slicked back hair.
"Hey, no fighting the two of you. Che Cazzo!" Ma's voice boomed.
