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?”

He nodded.

“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!!!❤️
