Hi! It’s me! Lily!
It rained today!!! Not a lot, but it was rain!!! It wasn’t even in the forecast!!! YAY!!! And then there were a few boomies. But nothing huge. It was still hot, but not quite as hot. Still 101 or so.
So tonight I did Liz’s recital! It was a little different than my recital. I came out, bowed, and sat down at the piano, to polite applause. Which was nice. Then she came out and everyone was clapping and hooting and hollering!!! Not all the girls showed up, but her family did, of course, and my family too!!! Liz isn’t upset. She’s a part of the Group, but she’s my best friend, not theirs. Diana did show up, though, with her mother. She likes music.
And… she was putting everything into it, too. I mean, she got into the zone, and at one point I thought I saw a tear leak out. And after we were done she bowed, then ran over to me and gave me a huge hug! Right on stage! Then she took my hand and we bowed together!!! That was so nice of her!
Afterwards she greeted and shook hands for a bit, and then we all went out for chocolate pancakes!!!
Turns out Liz has grown to like them too. Heh. She’s still not a huge sugar girl but I guess my chocolate thing has worn off on her a bit. And in her words, “Sometimes after a thing like that you just need to celebrate, and chocolate is for celebrating.” Couldn’t have said it better myself, but, like Rabbi Tuckman in “Robin Hood, Men in Tights” said = “there’s things here! Let’s celebrate trees and grass and that bird over there until we can’t eat any more chocolate!”. Well, paraphrased.
I’m glad Liz is going to Japan with me. I love her. And she loves me too. But I don’t want to accompany her again for at least a few months.
