April 21, 2015 THE BEST THANK YOU GIFT EVER! Awww! Marcy is SO super sweet! Last week I helped her write a paper for English (because I know a thing or two about writing, since I do it 24/7 in my diary!!) She was really stressing out because she’s had a TON of homework lately, and she’s felt super overwhelmed by it all. She was like, “I REALLY owe you, Nikki! How can I ever repay you for this??” And I responded, “Don’t sweat it. That’s what friends are for!” I figured that was the end of it. Then on Saturday morning, when I was eating Fruit Loops, the doorbell rang. I thought it was going to be Mrs. Wallabanger returning this foot fungus cream my mom had lent her. (Adults have the WIERDEST ailments!) But it was Marcy dressed up like Katy Perry! At first I pinched myself because I thought maybe I’d only DREAMED about getting up and seeing all of this. But then she started singing and I realized it was real…and it was a singing telegram! In case you’ve never heard of a singing telegram, it’s when someone in a costume shows up at your house and sings a message. And it’s SUPER fun and awesome!! Marcy started singing Roar, but with the lyrics changed to this: I used to wish I had a friend like you Someone super thoughtful, kind, and true So I sat waiting, and contemplating. Then I met you when I transferred schools. You were super sweet and really cool Unlike MacKenzie, who’s kind of crazy. You helped me out when I was down. You really pulled me off the ground. I’m smiling big, there’s no more frown. Everything really turned around. You helped me out when I was down. Get ready ‘cause it’s time to crown The world’s best friend, it’s really you. And I just wanted to thank you, I turn to you every time I need you And you’re always there because you are a super dork. Dorks are super sweet and caring. You’re always there because you are a super dork. Oh oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh Oh oh oh oh oh oh You’re such an awesome dork! A couple of our neighbors were poking their heads outside their doors, and I have to admit it was JUST a little embarrassing. But hey, it was totally creative and thoughtful! Brianna sang that song all day, and I couldn’t get it out of my head either! Wasn’t that the sweetest thing EVER? What person would you like to send a singing telegram to and why? What song would you use, and how would you rewrite the lyrics??
