Completely audacious and shameless pun. I love it. Nicely done, B.
I closed the book and threw it across the room. For real? Haupt-broken?"What's the matter, hun?" My mom asked from the kitchen."Reading.""Isn't reading supposed to be quiet?""Normally," I admitted.

Jeremy Haupt winked, walked away from my car and into his future. I'll never see him again. From that moment on, I was Haupt-Broken.I sat behind the wheel not knowing what to do. As my eyes welled with tears, the sting became sweet pain. I wiped across them with the back of my left hand as I reached for the ignition key with my right.The rev of the engine was loud. I appreciated that fact as I shifted into gear and turned the car down the street in the opposite direction from where Jeremy tread."I'll show him" I thought as I made a left on Leftwich."Who needs him?" I said aloud as I cornered to the left near the park.I was accelerating, nearly airborne, as I sped down the block along Merrin Boulevard.There he was, the pompous ass, not a care in the world as he checked his reflection in the storefront window of Good Hardware.I don't know why I did it, but I honked the horn. I guess I wanted to get his attention.No, as a matter of fact, I wanted to see the complete terror on his face as he bounded off the front bumper of my car and into the air.Jeremy landed in a heap along the curb, as I high-tailed it out of there. He faded into memory and my rear view mirror."Haupt-broken my ass" I laughed. "You're Haupt-dead!"So much for his future.
Walt, that was evil poetry in motion. Awesome!
