Lindsey speaks out


Hey everybody, Linds here. I borrowed Vee's friend's camera to make this update, she thinks hers will be out of the shop soon.
Can't be soon enuf tho, school starts a week from Monday. I am SO not looking forward to it, especially with Haley still traveling. BTW, she STILL hasn't sent me those pics so I could post them, sigh. Haley, if you're reading this, hurry up!
Vee's friend has one of these fancy talking cameras with the auto-focus and about 20 megapixels. Sigh.


So, today I was at the aquarium with my pesty older brother Ethan when three girls suddenly came up to me. I knew exactly who these girls were, Kylee Phillips, Vicky Vaccaro, and a third girl that looked suspiciously like Haley's Natalie. Haley knows Natalie a lot better than I do, but I'm very familiar with Kylee and Victoria. Those two have been the bane of my existence since about the third grade, teasing me about everything, Kylee by far the worst of the two.

"Whatcha doin' here?" Kylee asked.

"What does anybody do here?" I replied. "I'm looking at the fish."

"Couldn't you have done ANYTHING with your wild hair?" she asked. "Every time I see you it's in that same frizzy mop."

I heard Victoria laugh and snicker behind her, but Natalie (or at least the girl I suspect was Natalie) didn't utter a peep. Then I figured it out. Alison told me the three of them were on the gymnastics team last year.

"Well you know, Kylee," I shot back, "that skirt is so high someone could probably see your underpants. If I left out of my house in that, mom and dad would burn it with me wearing it."

Those girls sound completely obnoxious. I know so many of those- all they want to do is criticize you for every little thing.
But...I really loved your comeback. That should have put Kylee in her place.

Hi Lindsey, nice name! LOL, you have my name, my looks, and my outfit - we must be twins! Anyway, as the resident computer geek of FHSG, it's in my job requirement to monitor FHSG student blogs, which means - I GET TO MONITOR SOPHIE'S BLOG! I usually don't post or anything like that, but I saw your blog post and just had to respond with a huge -

CONGRATULATIONS!!

You didn't let that bird brain Kylee pick on you without giving it right back to her! You MUST be my twin because I'd do the same thing. Since there are a few girls around here who walk around as if they own the place (who shall remain nameless, I might add), I've had to "speak" to them from time to time. Not that i get picked on exactly because I don't let them pick on me.

Anyhow, I just wanted to say - from one Lindsey to another - I'm proud of you for reacting the way you did!

Signed,
Lindsey A. Bergman

P.S. You have an older (annoying) bro named Ethan, too?! Weird.

To Sabine: Kylee def deserved it.

To Lindsey A. Bergman, I'm Lindsey R. Bergman, and I think we have to be related. I'm keeping Haley's blog for her while she's out traveling.

That dodo Kylee is insane. I mean, can she even sit down in that skirt? Really. Anyways. GTG.
