I went to bed late last night. We spent a
long time talking with Kirsten, our
counselor. We can talk to her about
anything — about camp, school and even
boys. We all have a lot to say about boys.
Mom, the girls in my cabin are the
greatest. They always include me in
everything and make me feel welcome. I
am so glad I came to camp!
It's pretty gross when we wake up. We
are supposed to be outside for flag raising
at 8 a.m., but most of us get out of bed at
about 7:55. We just throw on some old
clothes and run out the door. I look
disgusting, but so does everybody else so
nobody cares. It's not like Mel Gibson is
going to be there or anything,
The one person who is always awake
and happy in the morning is Kathy Simon.
She is in charge of the whole Sheruth
Village, and she is always pleasant and
smiling. I don't know how she does it.
I told you I'm crazy about the girls in
my cabin and I am. But there's one
problem. They are slobs. They wanted me
to write that they are neat, but I cannot
tell a lie. Dirt is always on our floor and
clothes are thrown all over the place. We
are always in last place when the cabin
inspector comes to check for cleanliness.
I am in my second Prime Time now. We
get three. I am taking arts and crafts and
there's a lot to do. We do tie-dye and
make stuff with rhinestones and make
candles and papier-mache sculptures. I
am making something for you, Mom, but
I'm not going to give it to you if don't send
me some gum.
