There I sat with my sister. The party before summer ends. The LAST party before summer ends. Not sure whose house it was, didn't care really.
“What is that giant ball of fire doing in the sky?” My sister asked as she put her hand up to create a shadow for her eyes.
“You really should leave the computer lab more often.” I said.
“And do what? This? I think I feel my skin sizzle. Do I look red?” She glanced at her arm while still blocking her eyes. “I can’t tell.”
“Neither can I. I’m blinded by the reflection off your glowing white skin.” I glanced at her and winced as we both laughed.
“Fair enough. Well, I did buy a bikini for this event so I suppose I should walk around and show it off.” She stood up and adjusted her towel on the back of the chair.
“Just let me walk in front of you so I can pass out shades to minimize blindness. I like these people.”
“These are really fun people. I can see why you leave the computer lab so much.”
“Because I hate computers. Don’t let my life confuse you.” I giggled then pointed at the table of food. “It looks as if the hot dogs are done. Let’s go see if we can ruin that perfect body of yours so I can look better.”
We continued to poke fun and giggle through the evening. We shared many laughs and made new memories. Nothing is as magical as time spent with the people you enjoy. Oh, and I got her to eat 4 hot dogs. I’m looking great!
