The Geek That Followed Me Home
Julia Pileggi (age 7)
I am in a mood today. Do not wave at me, even if all you mean to say to me is hello! I’m serious. I’ve had a whole can of worms open up on me and I don’t think I can stand it if one more person asks me if I want to sit down! A mood of all colours. Of rainbow colours. Of Laurentian pencil crayons. I feel very unsupported today.
I feel like people have an ulterior motive when speaking to me today. As if I know what is what more than they do. I don’t know more than they do. I’m also just a bit miffed because I missed my cousin Albee’s stint on the national news. They were running his segment, and it was his first in three years (because he was in a coma) and I missed it because I didn’t set the proper alarm! Simple as that. I missed his first and final media resurgence! I should have thought about it before, but I had on my oven mitts(because I was baking a strawberry rhubarb pie) and I was distracted by how good I looked in an apron–as somebody’s house wife! I never thought I’d be one in real life so I guess I was getting really excited. Albee’s not my favorite cousin either, I just wish I could have seen him for the story.
