Hi!  It’s me!  Lily!


So yesterday we went to the waterpark.  We got to the waterpark and we were all having a good time.  I went down the waterslide and LOST MY TOP!!!!!


So I didn’t know it happened and I was just sitting there in the water, still coming off the adrenaline of sliding down the slide, and Beth was frantically waving her arms at me.  I waved back, and she screamed “no!  look down!”.  So I did.


So I immediately covered the girls with my hands and yelled at Beth to find my top.  She was giggling like a schoolgirl, well, because she is a schoolgirl, but she looked for it, and NO ONE KNEW WHERE IT HAD GONE!!!!!

So I went to get out of the pool, still covering them with my hands, and several boys were staring!  I gave them the stink eye!  Sabby ran up to me with a towel and covered me up, and gave the boys the stink eye too.

“See something interesting?”, she said, with just a hint of threat in her voice.

They looked away, but I caught them giving me quick glances.

I know I know I said in another post “what’s the big deal, it’s just a body”, but people were staring.  AAAAAGGGGGHHHHH.

So finally they found my top and Sabby held up the towel while I put it back on, and my entire body was beet red, I was blushing so hard.  Sabby was smirking.

“What’s so funny?,” I growled sulkily.

“Really, Lily.  Would you have found it funny if it were anyone else?”

I lowered my head and murmured quietly, “prolly.”

She patted my shoulder.  “It’s just a body,” she said quietly.

I sighed.  She had mirrored my exact words.  I had covered up, so I gave the towel back to Sabby and walked proudly back to the stairs of the slide.  A bit too proudly, because I caught the boys staring again. I glared at them.  They had the decency to look away.

I climbed the stairs and went down again.  I kept my top that time.

You know, looking back on it, it’s really not a big deal.  So some people saw my floppy bits.  Oh well.  It could have been a lot worse.  My girly bits were never in danger.  And even if they were, oh well.  Half of us got ’em anyway.

After we got home, I told Liz what happened, and I thought she was going to fall over laughing.  She was clutching her sides and everything.  I didn’t think it was that funny, but I guess it was a little funny.  When I said I wanted to make new memories, I didn’t mean that!

Well, then what did I mean, after all?

I guess…  I guess I kinda meant that after all.  Good memories, bad memories, this was just an embarrassing but funny memory.  The kind you tell your kids about.

Beth told me she hopes she looks like me when she’s my age.  So at least there’s that.

I called the shelter about the bird.  It didn’t make it.   But everyone did everything they could for it, and I guess that’ll have to be enough.  I hope it died somewhat comfortably.  Better than expiring on the side of the road, don’t you think?

Only a little better, but in this life, we take what we can.

Other than the most embarrassing moment of my life (that I can remember), and the little bird, nothing interesting happened.  It’s the start of another week.  School’s starting in just a few weeks, and I have no idea if we’ll actually be going or not.  Sabby is actually starting to talk seriously about home schooling us.  Truthfully, I kinda hope she does, though I was looking forward to doing sports.  But who knows if we’d do sports this year anyway.  I think she’ll be a great teacher.  She’s really smart.  And Beth can probably teach me some stuff too.

Love you all!!! ❤️
