Hi! It’s me! Lily!
And… ummm… I’m speechless. I really have no words.
So this morning, Robert’s wife said she was going to take me to a dress shop and get me a very fancy dress. I didn’t really know why, but I had nothing else to do, obviously, so we went to get me a very fancy dress. It took quite a long time for the tailor to do the tailor thing. but at the end, I had a very nice satiny lavender dress with a slit down the side. I… well, Jack would have loved me in it. And then she took me and Rebecca to get our hair and makeup professionally done.
They didn’t bother telling me why.
Well, I found out why.
You remember that celebrity that we ran into yesterday that I still don’t remember who it was? Well, he invited us to the Oscars! All four of us!!!
We went up the red carpet and everything!!!
Why is my life like this? Why do these things always seem to happen to me?
They of course didn’t really get any photos of me because, well, I’m nobody, but we went into the auditorium, and I’ve never seen so many people in tuxedos and evening gowns! I have never felt more like I didn’t belong! But… they did have free chocolate, so there’s that. I had a bit of that and felt better.
Anyway, I watched a bunch of people I don’t know and don’t care about prattling on about movies I don’t know and don’t care about. I think Robert understood that. But he did tell me to try to enjoy it, because it’s a once in a lifetime experience that will probably never happen again.
And… he’s right about that. So I tried. It was certainly an experience. I used all of my Japanese grace and poise. Hahaha!!!
And here’s the funniest thing!!!
Sabby was watching the Oscars (she usually doesn’t but she was bored) and… she saw me! And I didn’t tell her I was going!
So when it was over and we were in the car on the way back, my phone was blowing up!!! Hahaha!!!!
She called Emiko, and Emiko called Ai’s parents, and, well, everyone I knew was blowing up my phone asking me why the heck I was at the Oscars!!!
I said I don’t talk to little people. Sabby threatened to smack me. Suddenly I talked to little people. hahaha!!!!
Of course I’m kidding. I wasn’t joking when I said I don’t care.
It’s… really a different world here. I guess it’s fun to dip a toe in. But… but I will be happy to be home. This isn’t my world. This is Robert’s world.
Robert had to tell Rebecca to behave herself and not fangirl over all the celebrities, though. She did a pretty good job, though when one gave her a compliment she turned beet red and squeaked. It was hilarious!!!
Robert, well… he asked me if I was having a good time. I said yes, but I said this isn’t my world, and I don’t really feel comfortable in it. He said he understood and didn’t take it personally. That’s when he told me to just enjoy making memories.
That… was exactly the right thing to say, to me. This may not be my world. It may make me uncomfortable. But no one at all can deny that… I’m making a whole bunch of memories. I mean, who gets to say they went to the Oscars???
Me! I do!
Okay! Tomorrow we’re going boating!
