Oh now this is F-U-N! Thank you Coley for this fun, nostalgic and sexy little story. I love it. I love that you're pulling references from everywhere. Lee Ann Womack - am I right? This has all the ingredients for a classic tale. Can't wait for more.

Coley! LOVE THIS! Your writing is so VIVID! I can see Jim so clearly up on that tractor. And every other scene is nearly as alive. That tractor was pretty darn riveting! And I totally agree with Warrior, "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy" jumped right into my mind too! Not that I'm a huge country western fan (do like me some Dixie Chicks!), but that song and the video are pretty powerful. So much else I could say, and I probably will! Keep it coming, my StoryPainter friend! :)

Ok, so for the first time, I'm going to be writing this review as I read and the first thing I have to say is, holy crap 90's call backs. Jim with frosted tips and the puka shell necklace? There's an image. The cargo pants though, no big deal. Cargo pants and shorts are among the greatest gifts to mankind. It's rare nowadays that I don't wear cargo pants or shorts, so good on ya Jim. Ok, moving on.
All of Pam's growing up awkwardness, lots of fun to envision there. Sassy Granny is being a hoot here. I love it.
Ok, you might have all those girl power country songs stuck in your head with this one, but honestly the only song coming to mind right now is, "She Thinks My Tractor's Sexy." Have fun with that image.
Jim and Karen drama this early? Yeah I'm with Kelly here, what the hell Jim? Moving on. Ok just the actions of a mildly drunk Jim.
Tipsy Sassy Pam is kind of funny too. I like that they still have the feel of their canon banter. Looking forward to seeing how this all plays out.

Coley! Nostalgia is my love language! I am so here for this story! I definitely don’t know what an apple pucker is, but going back to your hometown & finding that dorky boy down the street is now gorgeous & you want to do things to him - that I understand...
I loved all the repurposing of all the other characters, especially Kelly. You always write such lovely Pam/Kelly friendships.
I’m so, so excited to see where you take this.
