Once, as a joke, I asked Katie if I could bring some homemade hash brownies to liven things up. You should have seen her face. It was like I’d invited her to join a Satanic cult. At Katie’s parties, we all sit around in the rec room in our nighties. (Except for me. I usually sleep in my underwear, so Mrs. Kincaid makes me wear an old pair of Katie’s pajamas, plastered with kittens or ballerinas. ) We eat popcorn and chips and play stupid games and gossip. Then Mrs. Kincaid comes down with more so-called treats, like Rice Krispies squares and Jell-O fruit cups, and also stuff she makes from recipes on the backs of packages, like multicolored mini-marshmallows and canned mandarin orange slices in sour cream.
And then I turned to Ashley and practically shouted. “You are such a pathetic baby, Ashley Walker. Who are you to talk about anybody? ’ Say it, Ashley! ” Seeing as we were hanging around the mall at the time, I got a lot of attention. I also made Ashley cry. Serves her right after how she treats me. Like, she’s lucky I don’t blog about her on Facebook. I mean, I wouldn’t, but she deserves it. Getting even with Ashley was one thing, but I still worried about what the other girls thought. That’s why Frenching with Jason in broad daylight was extra fantastic.
I sneak extra time when she’s late getting home, but it’s hard getting around her. The computer’s in the living room so we can share it. I had to go with that or have her in my room all the time. Hmm. Ms. Graham’s at her desk pretending to mark, but her pen isn’t moving. Neither are her eyes. She’s just staring. I don’t think she’s going to teach today. Great. Back to Jason and me. The other girls are sooo impressed. Except, of course, for Ashley A-hole, who goes around pretending she’d never date a senior, that only sluts do that.
