When I wrote yesterday that we were partying with a group of 11 year olds, I was foolish. What I SHOULD have written was the girls were going to party and David and I (and Tracey too - we conned her) were going to rock in a corner after pulling all of our hair out! AAAARRRRRRGGGGHHHHH!!!!!
Some girls were good and some were…the opposite of good.
Rude springs to mind but beyond that, over confident, disrespectful, loud and arrogant. It transported me (and Tracey too) right back to our own fifth grade nightmares. I hated school. I was always the girl who was teased by EXACTLY this type of female. My blood runs cold with the memories.
Imogen and Madeline knew we were not happy by the time lunch was served. I really was disappointed in the attitudes of these girls and saddened too. I must be niave or something. I had no idea that we would be dealing with such nasty little misses. They teased Malachy and then laughed at his misfortune, they were rude to David, Tracey and I. Only three girls said thank you (aside from my own, Mollie, Tracey’s daughter and AJ). The movie was a disaster. Nobody stayed in their seats and despite constant pleas from the adults they all continued to talk loudly. The other patrons cussed and shooshed and tried their hardest to enjoy the movie but it was no use. They were in the isles, on the floor, standing up, throwing food, anything but watching a movie. At lunch they were like animals, ripping food from each others mouths, ever afraid that THEY were going to miss out!
I was alot of things when I was 11 but I’m sure that I was NEVER like these girls. I think I am shocked to know that Imogen and Madeline would choose these girls as playmates.
I am off to bed now, tense and exhausted (and newly educated on my daughters’ so called ‘friends’). Perhaps in time I will find the whole thing funny but not tonight.
