【原滋原味 英文小说】

Later on Sunday 
    
Oh, okay. According to my mom, who just came into my room, Mr. Gianini spent the night on the futon couch because a train on the line he normally takes to his apartment in Brooklyn derailed, and it was going to be out of service for hours, so she told him to just stay over.
    
If I were still friends with Lilly, she would probably say that my mother was lying to compensate for having traumatized my perception of her as a strictly maternal,
and therefore nonsexual, being. That’s what Lilly always says when anybody’s mother has a guy over and then lies about it.
    
I prefer to believe my mom’s lie, though. The only way I will ever pass Algebra is to believe my mother’s lie, because I could never sit there and concentrate on
polynomials knowing that the guy in front of me has not only probably stuck his tongue in my mom’s mouth but also probably seen her naked.
   
Why do all these bad things keep happening to me? I would think it would be time for something good to happen to me for a change.
    
After my mom came in and lied to me, I got dressed and went out into the kitchen to make breakfast. I had to, because my mom wouldn’t bring me breakfast in my room,
like I asked her. Actually, she went, “Who do you think you are, anyway? The princess of Genovia?”
    
Which I suppose she thinks is hysterically funny, but really it isn’t.
    
By the time I left my room, Mr. Gianini had gotten dressed, too. He was trying to be all jokey about what had happened, which is the only way you can be about it, I
guess.
    
I wasn’t feeling too jokey at first. But then Mr. G started talking about what it would be like to see certain people from Albert Einstein in their pajamas. Like

Principal Gupta. Mr. G thinks Principal Gupta probably wears a football jersey to bed, with her husband’s sweat pants. I kind of started to laugh, thinking about Principal Gupta in sweat pants. I said I bet Mrs. Hill wears a negligee, one of those fancy ones with the feathers and stuff. But Mr. G said he thought Mrs. Hill was more into flannel than feathers. I wonder how Mr. G knows. Did he go out with Mrs. Hill, too? For a boring guy with so many pens in his shirt pocket, he sure gets around.
    
After breakfast, my mom and Mr. Gianini tried to get me to go to Central Park with them, because it was all nice outside and everything, but I said I had too much
homework, which wasn’t too big of a lie. I do have homework—Mr. G should know— but not that much. I just didn’t really want to be hanging around with a couple. It’s like when Shameeka started going with Aaron Ben-Simon in the seventh grade, and she wanted us to go with her to the movies with him and stuff because her dad wouldn’t let her go anywhere with a guy alone (even a totally harmless guy like Aaron Ben-Simon, whose neck was as thick as my upper arm), but when we went with her she sort of ignored us, which I guess is the point. Only for the two weeks they went out, you sort of couldn’t talk to Shameeka, because all she could talk about was Aaron.
    
Not that all my mom can talk about is Mr. Gianini. She’s not like that at all. But I had a feeling if I went to Central Park I might have to see kissing. Not that
there’s anything wrong with kissing, like on TV. When it’s your mom and your Algebra teacher, though . . . 
    
You know what I mean, right?

1. We’ve been best friends since kindergarten.

2. One of us has to be the bigger person and make the first move.

3. She makes me laugh.

4. Who else can I eat lunch with?

5. I miss her. 
 
REASONS I SHOULD NOT MAKE UP WITH LILLY 
 
1. She’s always telling me what to do.

2. She thinks she knows everything.

3. Lilly is the one who started it, so she should be the one to apologize.

4. I will never achieve self-actualization if I always back down from my convictions.

5. What if I apologize and she STILL won’t talk to me????
