March 12, 2013 CHLOE’S MALL EMBARRASSMENT!! Chloe and Zoey are always SUPER helpful with boy stuff!! Every time I need some advice about Brandon, they’re there! There was the time when I accidentally said, “Wow, it’s so cute today…I mean cold!” because Brandon looked super cute and I was thinking about it. Zoey said, “Don’t worry! Brandon was probably thinking the same thing about you!!” Then there was the time I tripped in front of him and felt TOTALLY embarrassed. Chloe said, “I think he already knows you’ve FALLEN for him…so really, it’s no big deal!” Okay, so that was a little cheesy, but still, I love those girls! They ALWAYS have my back when something embarrassing happens. When Chloe had a super embarrassing boy situation this weekend, I knew I had to come to the rescue! We were at the mall looking for…well, nothing really. (My mom doesn’t get it, but you don’t need to actually buy anything to hang out at the mall. Sometimes, you just need a little walking-around-stores-and-stuffing-your-face-in-the-food-court therapy!) When we were eating pizza, we saw this group of kids we didn’t know…except one of them, Chloe’s crush Marcus, and he kept staring at her! She thought maybe she had cheese all over her face or something, so she kept wiping it with napkins, all nervous-like. She went through so many of them that we ran out! But the pizza was literally the cheesiest I’ve ever had. Seriously, it was SO cheesy that I actually said, “Hmm, maybe we should have told them that we like CRUST with our pizza!” Eventually we needed more napkins, so Chloe got up to get some. And when she did, Marcus kept staring at her. She got so flustered that she pulled way too hard at the napkin dispenser thing and a ton of napkins flew out! I know what you’re thinking, “That’s not THAT embarrassing!” You’re right! THAT’S not the humiliating part! I could tell Chloe was a little embarrassed because her face turned red, but she just grabbed the napkins and speed-walked back to our table. The REALLY embarrassing part happened when we were waiting outside for my mom to pick us up. We were just standing there, hanging out, when we saw Marcus again! He was standing a little bit away from us, by himself, like maybe he was waiting for a ride, too. He and Chloe kept looking at each other and then looking down at their feet. It was JUST like Brandon and me…and SO cute!! (I wonder if WE’RE that cute??) Finally he started walking over to us, and I got SO nervous for her!! Just when he was about five feet away, something gooey dripped onto Chloe’s head. What was that gooey something, you ask? I’m sure you can guess…it came from the sky, where things fly! Yup…a bird pooped on her head! I couldn’t even imagine how mortified she must have felt!! Right then, Marcus stopped and just stared. He didn’t laugh or anything, but it was TOTALLY awkward, like he just didn’t know what to do or say. So I reached into my pocket, pulled out some of those napkins from the food court, and said, “See, you’re so smart…always thinking ahead. Good thing you got all these!” Then we all laughed together and Marcus said, “Hi Chloe.” Then he smiled and blushed at her! My mom came right after that, so she didn’t really get to say much, but I can tell it made her feel awesome to know that he still wanted to talk to her…even with bird poop on her head! I hope nothing that embarrassing happens to me when I’m talking to Brandon, but if it does, I know one thing for sure…Chloe and Zoey will have my back!!
