Hi! It’s me! Lily! Your favorite sixteen year old with no memory!!!
I had my Japanese class today. Sensei wants me to keep practicing the “k”, but she added another line now. This is hard! But I wanted to do it, so ganbarimasu. I learned that! It means “I’ll try my best!”
Well, it seems like it’s a little more final than that, but oh well.
I want to go to Japan someday! I want to see mount Fuji! Maybe take a picture! Hahaha! Fuji film! Hey, how did I know that?? I want to see Tokyo! Shibuya! Akihabara! Maybe I’ll buy a maid costume and give the boys a heart attack! KIDDING! I know Sabby reads this! I think she’d kill me! But Halloween is coming up, so I have to think of something…
Maybe I’ll wear the cheongsam!
Actually what would probably happen is she’d say “if you’re going to wear the maid costume, I might as well put you to work”, and then I’d have to clean, in high heels to boot, and that wouldn’t be any fun! I wouldn’t put it past her! I saw how Claire Huxtable dealt with the girls who thought they had a singing group! “Flinging parts from one end to the other! I won’t HAVE it!”
No maid costume for me.
So, what else. David actually asked me today why Allison was so mad at him! Me! So I asked him what he did. He looked embarrassed, and said he pulled her hair. Yeah, that’ll do it. I told him that even though he’s nine, girls don’t like their hair pulled, and you have to show you like them in a better way than that.
So, he asked, what’s a better way?
I had to think, because I’ve never thought about it. I don’t really think about boys. I don’t want to be swept off my feet, I don’t want a boyfriend, I just don’t. Like I said, I like boys, but I can’t think about that right now. I don’t think girls that age would like flowers, or anything like in the movies. Finally I just said “treat her nicely.”
“How do I do that?”
I facepalmed. Of course he wouldn’t know. He’s David.
“You know all that stuff you do to Beth?”
“Do the opposite.”
I can’t believe that worked.
“What do you like about her anyway?,” I asked.
“Well,” he said, clearly embarrassed. “She’s pretty, and… and… she likes some boy stuff. Like swimming. And baseball. And mud. I like mud.”
That’s not really boy stuff, but he’s nine, so I let it pass. “You know she likes girl stuff too, right?”
“Then maybe try to understand what things girls like. It won’t kill you to smell a little better,” I said, and ruffled his hair. He looked embarrassed. “Anyway, you’re young and there’s lots more girls out there.”
“I guess,” he said. “I’m going to go play Roblox.”
And he did. I was just happy he talked to me for once.
Dave tells me I need to start looking for a part time job. Sigh. But he’s right. I have a car to maintain now.
Love you all!!!❤️
