Hi! It’s me! Lily!
So I think the drama’s over now. For the most part. I have had to do a lot of thinking and I guess I’ve been a little more moody than usual, because Sabby bought me a big chocolate shake. You know how she says chocolate fixes everything? I guess it doesn’t always. But I still drank the shake! And I did feel a little better.
Letting chocolate go to waste is a crime. Ignore those puddings in the trash over there. You didn’t see anything.
Beth seems a little shaken too. I don’t think she realized what a bad influence her “friends” were. Apparently they’d been doing stuff like that. I don’t think Beth ever had to take a dare quite like that, but they really didn’t know when to stop. Apparently her friends have already kissed boys! I mean, really! They were younger than Beth! We did ask Beth during the game (she chose “truth”) whether she kissed a boy. She turned beet red and said “I’m not sure”. When all the giggling was over, we asked what she meant. She answered, “Does the cheek count?” Liz and I agreed that it really doesn’t. After all, I kiss her forehead all the time, and that doesn’t count at all.
We begged for details but she wouldn’t spill. All she’d say was she was dared to and didn’t go any further. Apparently this wasn’t the first game of “truth or dare” she’d played, and, well, no wonder Sabby was annoyed. But I’ll let Sabby extract that info if she wants. Not my business.
Liz told me that we’d be meeting some of her family in Florida. They’re coming to Disney World too. Not quite a family reunion, but they haven’t seen each other in a while. Apparently she has a cousin who is about my age. Might be fun to make a new friend! Liz wouldn’t tell me her name, though. They haven’t talked in a long time, and she just mentioned her in passing.
Speaking of Florida, we leave in five days! Sabby’s really fussing now. She’s got plans on plans on plans, she told me she expects to be able to chat with me every night and wants me to tell her everything that happens, and she’s really being a mama bear. Finally I had to tell her that I’d be fine, and to let me have fun. She wasn’t too happy with that but seemed to realize she was being a little overbearing, and backed off just a little. Only a little. Sabby gonna Sabb.
Beth is still grounded, and no one’s told me what she and Sabby are going to do. But I’ve had my own problems. Sabby has been calling around church trying to set up outings with families that have girls about the same age as Beth. Apparently, Beth is going to have new friends, and they are going to be Sabby-vetted. I guess I can’t blame her. Beth doesn’t seem too enthused, but oh well. I’m sure Sabby knows what she’s doing.
Oh I forgot to mention, Allison lost her big game. I know, right! So sad. But you know what? She got to whack the ball and everyone cheered. Sometimes you lose something, but you get memories and experience out of it. Next time she’ll whack the ball harder, and maybe even win! There’s always a next time.
Oh oh oh I promised big news! I set up subscriptions on this site! They’re free, and they’ll let you see some things that I don’t want little eyes to see. Nothing awful, but I try to keep this site safe for little ones by default. If you sign up, well, you’ve been warned!
Okay. That’s done. Whew.
I must go now. I have schoolwork to do. Just because next week is a vacation doesn’t mean I get to slack off! So math and science and all that stuff, here I come! YAAAAAAY!!! Oh and Japanese too! YATTAAAA!!!!!!!! Love you all!! ❤️
