[with a hint of |ting tings - that's not my name]

My very first friend from Hawaii sent me scans of pictures of us when we were four or five years old. Are you ready for this? Cos I sure wasn't.



Scary clown girls


I sure did have a way with the boys. Not much has changed.


I adored my sparkly wand.


Garfield's birthday, aka an excuse to eat cupcakes.


Rubber ducky love.




In other news, it's fecking freezing here. I want to be in Honolulu.

I believe we probably got away with a great deal of mischief due to our combined powers of cute.

Yes! I was surprised to be reminded how much we looked alike, as I think when I was small, I always thought she looked so different because she had blonde hair.

I kept it for years. I may still have it somewhere in a box. I think I really believed it was magical.

Hee. Thanks! I wonder how long it took us to work out that we could get a cupcake by celebrating our stuffed animals' birthdays...

I remember one of us received a dollar (a whole dollar!) as a present. We wanted to share it. So we very carefully tore it in half. Her mum found her half. She got in trouble. I snuck my half over to her house the next day and we taped it back together. My mum never knew.

Barnes Pond froze as well, except for a little bit where the ducks and swans constantly swim frantically up and down to keep the water clear. I saw a duck slide off the edge of the ice into the water. Hi-larious!

I know, I was surprised to observe that for myself. When I was small, I always thought she looked very different because she had blonde hair. But we actually look a lot alike.

But of course

Yes, you should. I keep telling people stories about you & us & our adventures lately, by the way. I think it's because I miss you and we need to have another one soon.

Was there anything more entertaining than a laundry basket at that age?

It's like a box that won't fall apart!

We could both fit into it even with all our supplies, and sail away to find treasure/cupcakes/the Galapagos.

We must have melted many a cynical heart with those matching smiles, though we had aims no higher than cupcakes.
