I love the color yellow. It's such a sunny, happy color. It's the color my whole world would be without Abby Jensen in it.
For my 12th birthday, my mom let me decorate my room the way I wanted it. (Abby was sooooo jealous! Score one for me!) My new bed had a big yellow canopy over it and all the pillows and everything were covered in yellow flowers.
When I wake up in my wonderful yellow bed in the morning, for just a moment I forget that I'm going to have to see Abby Jensen that day and I smile. Then I hear her annoyingly cheerful voice coming from her driveway across the street and my smile drops. It's instantaneous! I can't help it! Just knowing I'm going to have to occupy the same school district with her makes me suddenly feel like I did when I was 8 and my double scoop of lemon chiffon ice cream fell into a mud puddle.
I wish Abby Jensen would move. To Iceland.
