Hi! It’s me! Lily!

So…  as you may have noticed, yesterday no one came to pick up cookies.  This morning, however…

We heard a ruckus outside. We opened the door, and there was a military helicopter landing in a parking lot near the freeway!

Then a couple of guys in full uniform came out, and walked resolutely to our door.

Sabby answered.

“Umm… can I help you?”

“Yes, ma’am.  We’re here to… ummm… pick up some cookies?”, they said, sounding a bit unsure of themselves.

“Oh!  Wait here.  Come in.”

They came in, and stood in the living room looking a little out of place.  They took their hats off, which was nice.  But soon Sabby came out with a few tins of cookies, all wrapped up nicely with a bow.

“Thank you, ma’am.  We’ll be off now,” they said.  “We have to airlift an old lady to a medical appointment.”  They said this with a completely straight face, but a little side glance at each other told us they were being a little silly.

“Not a problem,” she said.  “Enjoy.”

“Not for us, ma’am.  General.. er, I mean, these are for someone else.”

Sabby and I looked at each other, and I swear the guy who slipped up was blushing.

“One moment,” she said, and ran into the kitchen and came out with a small box of cookies.  “For you.”

“Thank you, ma’am,” they said, and walked out the door.  A couple of minutes later, we heard the helicopter spinning up and taking off.

Ummm… wow.  All that trouble, just for Sabby’s cookies.

Sabby looked at me.  “Umm..  is that what we’re spending tax dollars on?”  She shrugged.  “I won’t ask.”

Probably wise.

I…  I’m not comfortable.

I’m not comfortable because apparently what happened to me was so important and has the attention of people so high up in the government that they can dispatch two military guys and a helicopter just to pick up some tins of cookies from Sabby.  That…  I’m glad they’re on my side.

I’m not upset… but I’m nervous.

What happened?

Otherwise, Jack and I went on a date tonight.  I let him choose where to go tonight.  He took me to Congress Bridge to see the bats!!!  They all flew out from the bridge like swarms of birds!!!  The sunset was nice too!!! Then he took me to a nice steakhouse and we had a lovely dinner.

After which he took me home.  I told him we could go back to his place sometime soon, but not tonight.  He understood.  Dave and Sabby invited him in, and we all watched a movie.  We cuddled up on the couch.  Beth looked a little put out, but I just gave her a dirty look, and she sighed and watched the movie.  I… really don’t blame her, in a way.  If I were her I might be a little jealous too.  After the movie Jack kissed me goodnight and went back home.

It was a very nice date.

So…  a couple of military guys came in a helicopter to pick up cookies.  How weird can things get???

Love you all!!! ❤
