Last night Shane, Giles, Amber, Heidi, Katie, KT, Cassie, Jay, George and I took a shortbus into Kingston to go swimming. I practiced putting my face in the water and kicking. LJ, Brett, Josie and Kevin were there. LJ was my coach. There was a naked lady in the steam room that would have preferred I stay out but I came in anyway and felt so new after. A Chinese lady ignored me when I asked her how to turn on the shower. Maybe she didn’t speak English. Maybe she did.
After we left the pool we went for burgers and chicken. Me and Jay talked about pop music. I’m glad we’re friends again. We listened to Third Eye Blind on the way back home. I had forgotten how much I love that song, “I Want You.”
I am so tired right now and I look like Foxy Brown because of the weather and my boob shirt. Which is good. I taught my “Good Friends” class tonight. It was hard for me to convey my vision to the women but basically I had them dissect their personalities into two characters, name them, make them meet and marry them to each other. Then we wrote tributes, adventure itineraries and put everything together to make a journal. Ann said she saw some of the women after my class and they insisted on showing their journals to her and said I was cute. A success I guess. Not everyone has to tattoo their ego to their arm to really “get it” though I kinda wish they would.
LP’s little brother is such a ray of sunshine. I was legitimately stressed about that friendship class today and he sent me the sweetest message out of the blue. He totally made my day by calling my f-ing awesome. You’re f-ing awesome little man! Another magical thing that happened today was when a lady in my class was telling me we should build a labyrinth at Frost Valley and Bowie’s “When the World Falls Down” started to play.
