Hi! It’s me! Lily!!!
Sabby’s not mad at me anymore for wearing the maid outfit, but somehow I think it’s worse, now. She’s disappointed.
She asked me if I’d ever seen any of those, well, unsavory sites. You know, with women doing not so nice things. I said I had accidentally, but it’s gross.
She asked me if those women ever regretted what they put on the net.
I thought for a bit, and said I didn’t know, but maybe some did?
She nodded. “Some don’t,” she said, “but far too many do. But that’s the thing about the net. Once something’s out there, you can’t take it back, and you will never know where it is. If you’re lucky, it’ll get lost somewhere, but if you’re not, then you’ll get people stopping you in the street. And like it or not, that’s all they’ll ever see you for.”
“But – it’s just a costume”.
She sighed. “It is, Lily. By itself, it’s probably not too big a deal. People wear worse than that to conventions. But the problem is that you don’t understand.. You just see it as something fun to dress up as. But the net doesn’t forgive, Lily. One mistake and you’ll regret it forever.”
I frowned. “It sounds like you”re talking from experience,” I said.
“Not quite,” she said, “but close.” And she wouldn’t say anything more about that.
I guess I have something to think about now.
Maybe thunder tonight! Yayyy!!!
