Hi! It’s me! Lily!
So today was hot and humid. I mean, soupy hot and humid. The weather was clear and hazy, and.. hot!!!
But not anymore! Storms are coming!!! And they’ll be here soon! I already let Marie out, so let it storm!!!
Liz is over tonight. Beth is over at Crystal’s house with Diana, so it’s just Liz and I. I don’t mind. I’m supposed to be grounded, but… I’m not sure what I’m grounded from. I can have Liz over, I really don’t go out with friends and do lots of stuff… I can’t really see Jack but we talk a lot online, so… nothing really changed. I guess it’s just the principle of the thing.
Anyway, the booms are coming closer. Liz seems a little nervous, I might have to be her big teddy bear tonight. I don’t mind. She was my little china doll a couple days ago.
I love Liz. Did I tell you that? I do. She and I aren’t really alike in some ways, we are in others, but we’ve been there for each other ever since we met a couple of years ago. Remember when she was so upset at her parents and that led to them kind of informally adopting me? Her home life got at least a little better after that. And remember how I accompanied her at her concert? She really appreciated that. And how I wouldn’t have met Jack if it weren’t for her? She’s always been really understanding when it came to my spending time with Jack. I wonder why everyone’s so understanding, actually. Maybe it’s a Chinese thing. But we’re always there for each other and she’s my best friend. And I’ll have other friends and half-sisters and friends of half-sisters and all sorts of things, but she’ll always be, if not my best friend, one of my best friends. She’s like a sister I get to choose, and those are the best kinds. Don’t you think.
Oh crap, that boom was loud. Liz whimpered a little. She’s a little bit afraid of storms, especially big ones like this one. I guess I need to go do my teddy bear duties now.
