Bad Blogger!

I forgot to post yesterday! What on earth was I thinking? How could I be so forgetful?

Actually, I know good and well why. I was at school, and then I had my science research meeting, and then I was tired, and then Nyx came over, and then I watched Chocolat with my family, and then I went to sleep, and then I woke up at nine this morning and ate breakfast.

Oops.

As far as school goes, I'll share a story about yesterday's lunch. I was eating with Cammie, Julie, Gretchen, and Vicky, but they'd all gotten there before I did.

"Nice rolled-up green pants," said Julie as I walked over.

"Thanks," I responded. "They're hand-me-downs from my little sister."

"Your little sister?" Cammie asked. "And how, might I ask, does that work?"

"Well, she's growing curves, and I'm growing height. Well, I'm not really growing height at this point, I suppose, but-"

"Your sister has scoliosis!" Vicky exclaimed, with the sort of tone that accompanies an exclamation of "OH MY GAWD!"

Everyone started laughing.

"What?"

"Curves, Vicky," corrected Gretchen.

"Yeah, curves, scoliosis," said Vicky, looking confused. She mimed a little scoliosis 's' in the air.

"No," Cammie laughed. "Curves. Like," she mimed an hourglass in the air.

"Oh! Well, I thought she said curved."

"Why would scoliosis make her grow out of pants?" asked Julie.

"I dunno, I just thought she meant scoliosis."
