Me: “I’m gonna vote for Piglet for town commissioner”.
Mom: “That’s not funny. Don’t do that. You really should take voting seriously…”
Me: “But I don’t know any of the people running. So I’m gonna vote for Piglet”.
Mom: “People fought for years for their rights to vote and you just have to make a joke out of it”.
Me: Geez, mom. Calm down. First I’m joking and do you really think Piglet would actually win. Imagine if the radio guy said, ‘Bar Harbor Town Commissioner is…..PIGLET!!!’.
Mom: Leave it blank if you don’t know who to vote for.
Me: But that’s not voting. People fought for their rights to vote and now am gonna leave it blank. At least Piglet is a real…well….you get my point.
Okay, so I got a question for my Tumblr friends. So at my local pizza place, “Pat’s Pizza”. There’s this girl that I like. She funny, cute, smart, blonde, and short. Everytime I go there she stops by my table to chat and ask how am doing. When my mom goes in without me, the girl, Sarah will ask where I am. So, the other day, my mom pressured me to ask this girl out. She like, “You better ask her out!! Just ask her to the movies. What’s wrong with you”. I get really really shy and nervous about asking girls out, cause I think they’ll say no and I don’t need my heart crushed and shattered by a girl I don’t know. My mom eats at Pat’s way more than I do, so she’s known her longer as a waitress. I wasn’t interested in her for months and didn’t care about her, until my mom said, “She’s soooo cute!!!! She soooooo cute!!! She’s like a little doll!!!”, so I was like “Whatever!!!” Then a few weeks ago I went into Pat’s and started to like this girl. She was coming up to me and asking about my movies and my summer camp job. I’m now wanting to ask her out, but problem is i have no idea if she’s single or not. Should I ask my mom to ask her if she single without making it look like I told her to do it?? My mom says she’ll do it, but thinks am a wimp. I said if she single and not in a relationship, I’d ask her out on a date. Which am sure I’ll back out at the last minute and end up not doing. Anyway, now I can’t get this girl outta my mind. I barley know anything about her. She could smoke, drink, and listen to Punk, three things I hate. but guess I should give it a try and just ask her out as two friends. I’m the kinda person when someone offers me something like a job or something, I always take it cause I love where life leads you and the unexpected people you meet along the way. But when it comes to dating, am like nervous wreck.
- Mom: Those people on Tumblr are going to come to the house and kidnap you.
- Me: Mom they barely ever leave their room.
