I spent Tuesday and Wednesday and James's
house. His mom's and his brother are both in Florida, so he's
got the house to himself. On Tuesday we hung around his place
with Emi. After a little
while we drove Emi home. Then we drove around some more before
stopping by Adam's house to
say hello. He was out shopping with his dad, but his mom wouldn't
let us leave without eating dinner there. So we had a steak dinner
at Adam's house by accident. It was very nice of his mom to let
us stay. But we payed for our meal by moving an organ. Which I
had to no problem with.
and I slept over James's that night. Adam got up early 'cause
he had to work. James, Mike, and I cooked ourselves dinner, clean
up house, and went food shopping. I forget what happened the rest
of the day, but we ended up having Jenna
over to teach us the dance steps from the crapshooters' dance
before "Luck Be a Lady." More people came over, and
it turned into a quasi-party/get-together. It was pretty mellow
in general. Patrick,
Mike, and I stayed over James's that night. Pat and Mike left
the next morning. I stayed to help James clean up. Then I went
with him and Emi to get his ear pierced, after which we went to
my house to study.
I read The House on Mango Street, by Sandra
Cisneros, that night. It was pretty short, but it feels good to
be able to say I read a book in one single night.
Quote of the day: I like to tell stories.
I tell them in my head. I tell them after the mailman says, Here's
your mail. Here's your mail he said.
