i was talking to kamille on the phone last night and she had to laugh at how she doesn't really need to miss me because, with amanda around, it feels like i never left.
for example: "she takes really, really long hot showers, and she sings the whole time."
"what's she like when she's having her period?" i asked. "awful," kamille said. "she sleeps and sleeps and sleeps and mopes around and says she feels like crying for no reason." i was like, omg, she is a little me!
to drive the point home, when i searched for pictures of amanda, i remembered when i took this one. it was after kelli's wedding. we were taking pictures and we told amanda that we wanted one of just the sisters, so could she go out of the shot? the poor kid didn't know how wedding pictures worked, so she heard that as, "we don't want you in the picture," and her little feelings were hurt and she cried and then we couldn't get her to come back for the rest of the pictures. very sensitive - yes, a little me. :)
call it a fault if you want - and yeah, it can feel like it sometimes, when i misinterpret something and get my feelings hurt over something i shouldn't have. but that just demands communication, which isn't such a bad thing. plus, chris made a good point - it means i treat other people sensitively, which i guess is true.
also, kamille says she is nerdy. am i nerdy? i guess so. :D
ALSO - this is cute.
i asked kamille if amanda was excited about coming down. "ja," she said. (i realized we say "ja" about every other word, like we're characters in fargo or something. like, "kyle is a handful." "ja?" "ja.") anyway, then kamille said, "about a month ago, i went upstairs and amanda was PACKING." amanda tried to say she was just packing away her summer clothes. "sure," kamille said. "in a SUITCASE?" ha ha! very cute!
