Among the hilarious contradictions of real life, I was tight with the school captain.
We weren’t gay about it. But it was still a great friendship. We made it work, despite his seriousness and my behavioral problems.
What we have in common:
- We catch the same bus.
- We both live the same distance from each other, which is about three kilometres.
- His mother is good friends with my foster mother, and they both love horses.
- We’re not fans of horses, unless they are Ponytas or
Rapidashes RapidashsRapidash? Dammit. I never get the plural of PokemonsPokemon correct. We tell Pokemon jokes. Such as:
How do you get Charizard on a stick? You Poke Him On.
Yawn. You’ve heard it. I know. So we invent our own Pokemon jokes that nobody but us can get.
How come Exeggcute always wins at beauty contests? Because
eggs are cuterExeggutor!
But what we don’t have in common:
- His name is Joel. My name is Chris.
- Joel lives with his mum and his sister. I don’t live with his mum and his sister, although I stay over sometimes.
- He is smart in every subject. I barely know what subjects we have.
- Joel is in Year 6. I am in Year 5.
- I have temper tantrums and run away and climb trees to hide. Joel is usually asked by the principal to persuade me to come down from the trees.
