September 4, 2012 BRANDON’S SO SWEET!! Even though I was super bummed to be back in school, I have to admit it’s TOTALLY awesome to see Brandon every day again. 🙂 Today he did something so sweet! I was pretty psyched about lunch because it was chicken finger day, and I’m ALL about chicken fingers!! I went to sit down with Chloe and Zoey, and I didn’t realize there was an open ketchup packet on my seat. I got it ALL over my pants! OMG I was so embarrassed! I didn’t have any other clothes in my locker or anything. Chloe said she had some gym shorts, but she had already worn them this morning. I DEFINITELY didn’t want to walk around with a huge stain, but wearing sweaty gym shorts felt even grosser! The stain was super obvious, and my shirt wasn’t long enough to cover it. I was standing up, trying to look back to see my own butt…which I bet looked pretty weird to anyone who was looking at me! Then MacKenzie walked by. She must not have noticed the stain because she was like, “Whatcha doing WEIRDO!?” And then she took my chicken fingers! ALL of them! Being obnoxious is one thing, but making me STARVE is so not cool!! I didn’t have more money to buy another lunch, and neither did Chloe or Zoey. I walked up to her and said, “Hey, those are mine!” Though I wasn’t really sure I wanted them anymore. Her hands smelled like nail polish remover and EVIL!! Then she said, “You want ‘em? Then go get ‘em!” and dropped them in the trash barrel. I seriously considered following her to her table, grabbing her tray, and throwing it across the room. Then I remembered I’m not FIVE…or a big fan of detention! Right then, Brandon walked over carrying a big brown bag and said, “Hey I have some stuff for you.” Suddenly I forgot ALL about the MacKenzie drama in my lunch. I was super curious about what he had for me!! He was like, “First of all, there’s this.” He was wearing a hoodie on top of a T-shirt, and he took it off and handed it to me, since it would be long enough to cover my stain. MacKenzie was watching with her mouth WIDE open like a codfish. She looked TOTALLY jealous! Then Brandon said, “And here…you can share my turkey sandwich.” How sweet was that? He gave me half of his sandwich, even though I’m sure he could have eaten, like, 10 of them. (Boys are like garbage disposals when it comes to food!!) At first I was SO annoyed about that big stain, but if I didn’t sit on that ketchup, I wouldn’t have gotten to wear Brandon’s shirt or share his lunch. As we were eating, he looked over and said, “That looks pretty good on you.” Chloe and Zoey stood up to throw their milk cartons away, and when they were standing behind Brandon they both gave me a thumbs up. That’s why we’re such great friends….we’re all TOTAL dorks!!
