I woke up to my phone blaring Thnks Fr Th Mmrs by Fall Out Boy.

"One night, and one more time, thanks for the memories, even though they weren't so great, he tastes like you, only sweeter! One night, yeah, one more time! Thanks for the memories, thanks for the memories! See? He tastes like you, only sweeter!"

I wanted to stay in bed longer, so I could keep listening to Pete Wentz's lyrical genius, but I couldn't. I had to go with Dan and Phil to their radio show. I'm not trusted to be left home alone.

Now, I know what you're thinking, Dan and Phil's radio show is on at night, not morning, so why am I waking up to go there?

Good question! The answer is because they were having a super special guest for the show and they needed to know what to say and do, and all that other fun crap we don't care about. We didn't even know who it was.

"Natalie Skyler Brandon! Get your lazy bum out of bed!" I heard Phil yell as he banged on my door.

"UGH," I groaned as I rolled over on my bed. I guess I was closer to the edge than I thought, because the next thing I knew, I was on the floor.

"Nat, are you O.K.?" Phil had been outside my door still and was now running over to me.

As he helped me up, Dan's figure appeared in the doorway. "I heard a thud. I came to check to make sure you didn't kill Phil for waking you up. I guess it's the other way around."

I just glared at him.

By that time, Phil had helped me back onto my bed and sat down next to me. Concern was written all over his face.

"Oh my gosh. Are you O.K.? I'm so sorry, Nat!" Phil was so concerned, it was adorable.

I laughed. "I'm fine, Phil."

Dan leaned against the doorway, and sighed. "Well, now that I know you're not dead, I'm going back to bed."

"You can't. We have to get ready for our show." Phil said.

Dan threw his head back and let out a loud groan. "UGH."

"Don't worry, Dan, I feel the exact same way," I told him.

Phil got up off my bed and walked over to Dan.

"Get ready! You have to go, too." Phil pushed Dan out of my room.
