Thursday 11th When I got to school this morning I gave Dougie his card. Lizzie was there and when he’d gone she told me he’d been telling her about the drink behind the temporary block. I dunno why he mentioned it coz the rest of us didn’t. Maybe it was a really memorable moment for him or summit, you know, his first swig of alcohol! The 1st thing he said to me when I got into Geography was, “You had any side effects from last night?”
Then Lizzie brought up the subject of sheep and I knew what she was about to say, “Remember those sheep in Bangor?” It’s just embarrassing coz in Year 8 we went on a week with school to Wales and there were these sheep around our building and we named one Dougie and then Freda called the other one Tess. Uh, she keeps bringing it up and I think Dougie was embarrassed too.
They were playing the video from last night in Mr P’s room at lunch and I told Dougie. He kept asking me if I was going. I did and I was on most of it coz all the people talking were stood by me. Then Swing Band came on playing ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ and Emma and I smiled at each other coz last night I had hold of the programme and I said to Emma, “I should write ‘All I Want For Christmas Is Ralph’ on it!” Then this lunch when it came on the video, Dougie caught us smiling and Emma told him why. He was sat there killing himself laughing and eventually said, “I’ll tell Ralph you said that!”
If I get a funny look from Ralph tomorrow, that’s probably why!
[Now I’ve got the Ralph version of ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’ stuck in my head.
*sings exactly like Mariah* I don’t want a lot for Christmas…]
