''Elle, these are my friends from school: Olivia and Summer.''
''Um...thanks, but, what is it?''
''You seem confused.''
''OMG!! YOU DID IT!!! YOU GOT A STRIIIIIIIIIIIKE!!!!!
''I did it!! I actually did it!!!
''Oh my gosh these fries are AMAZING!!''
''Can we order more pizza?
Ruth took me in the house to start her birthday party and I was introduced to Olivia (black/pink outfit) and Summer (purple shirt). We stand awkawardly for a few seconds before Olivia broke the silence.
Eating and Ordering More Food
''NO ONE TOUCH THE LAST CHICKEN WING!!!!''
''I'm thirsty. I'll go ask for more pop.''
Olivia and Summer got Ruth an oyster shell that you had to break open and it was slimy (Ruth wasn't ammused). Ruth was much happier with my gift-more horses to add to her collection.
Playing Uno Flip
''Are you kidding me??!!!"
After presents, we went to the Marshalltown bowling alley. We played 3 games. I was the only one who got a strike. Me and Ruth were thrilled.
Learning the Ukulele
''That's sounding good!''
As any teen would, we ate. And ate. And ate. And you get the point. In total, we ordered 4 pizzas, 6 fries, 3 platters of chicken wings (and you can guess who ate most of them) and 5 pitchers of Sprite.
Ruth and I are very aggressive Uno Flip players. We showed Olivia and Summer how to play. Big mistake. We changed the rules and played for 3 hours and 43 minutes. And yes. I kept track. We played until we had all the cards in our hands.
Olivia and Summer did not spend the night. Ruth and I stayed up until midnight and played ukuleles and watched heartwarming videos.
