Promising

After Dunc, Eva, and I got back in2 the bldg after our not-deep talk on the bleachers and on the way back, I found Ger in the hallway, @ his locker. I sed, "Hey, Gerald... How's it going?" He was all, "OK." I sed, "R U still talking 2 me?" He was like, "Sure. Y not." Then I sed, "I was talking 2 Eva an' Duncan... An' we were saying that no matter what, ....No matter where we go, the 4 of us hafta stay friends. Alwayz." And Ger was all, "I'm cool w/that! ..U wanna keep in touch w/ME, April?" Which was kinda weird, cuz I thot that was what I'd just finished saying, but just in case Ger sumhow didn't understand, I was like, "Well, YEAH!" Then I sed, "Welll keep in touch w/Luis an' Becky and, sumday when there's a class reunion, an' we're all gray-haired an' OLD, we'll remember this day an' this promise--OK?!" And Ger sed, "Yeah! OK!!" Then we walked down the hall, him w/his arm resting on top of my rite shoulder, and me w/my hand on his back. And Ger sed, "But that day is SO far off... it's hard 2 even IMAGINE!" As he sed that, a portly old, balding male teacher walked by, and I guess that was supposta B sum kind of irony. I h8 when things happen just 4 that reason.

And as I write this, I realize that we made this big promise that "the 4 of us hafta stay friends" but we'll only "keep in touch w/Luis an' Becky." Y can't the SIX of us all B friends an' all? Hmm. And Y, Y, Y have we been talking like we're in grade 12, all farewellish.

    About the "Luis and Becky" issue? She from Corbeil hasn't decided his destiny yet and she still resents Becky for living a life she won't let herself (or you) envy. I already mentioned how she's trying to add a year on your age so that's why you have to talk like Grad day is around the corner. I just wish Liz wasn't going to be stampeded into marrying Awfulny when it's supposed to be about you for a change.

    April,

    I know you are still the nicest girl in Milborough (I voted for you); but I wish you put me on your “keep-in-touch” list. I think I should be on that list before Becky. Is it because I will probably not graduate from Toward Independent Living certificate until I am 21, so I won’t be in your graduating class? Is it because special needs kids don’t live as long as regular kids, so I will probably die before I get gray-haired? Is it because you can only be friends with people who have been in your band?

    I wish you put me on your list. I would put you on mine.

    Love,
    Shannon Lake

    April,

    Formerly little sis. Are you seriously going to wait until a class reunion and Gerald and you are gray-haired to make your play for him? I certainly cannot recommend that course of action. Liz waited until she was done with her little adventure up north before she made a play for Anthony Caine, and look what happened to him in the interim with that awful Quebecois woman? I reconnected with my lovely wife, Deanna, in university, only waiting long enough for her to break her engagement, so I could freely pursue her. I recommend you shorten the delay, and then you can be as happy as Deanna and I are together.

    Love,
    Michael Patterson
