If wishes were horses...

While we were driving home from her book club last night, my grandma noticed that there was a star up in the sky. It was about nine o’clock, so being the middle of July it was still somewhat light out, but it was definitely a star, and the only star in the sky. I made a wish on it. I haven’t seen the first star of the night in years and years, so the last time i remember wishing on one i think i was in elementary school. While at the book club, which was outside, i saw a firefly. I can’t remember the last time I’d seen a firefly. Can you make a wish on the first firefly of summer? I didn’t, but i wish i had. We make wishes on birthday candles, shooting stars, first stars, and 11:11. Is there anything else that people wish on, in other cultures maybe?

Yesterday i got a cute Pooh Bear card from my other grandma (yup, she sent it to me here at my grandparents’ house) and an e-card from my friend Eileen. We were best friends in 9th and 10th grade, but then she moved to New Jersey and we haven’t stayed in touch very well, but we keep coming back to each other. When i get home i really want to get back in touch with a lot of people. It was funny listening to my parents try to guess who had sent me an online birthday card. I felt so popular because they were naming just about everyone i’ve ever been friends with. (Sharon, you were the first person each of my parents thought of. Hee.)

I read a Why Vegan pamphlet this morning (which made me want to become vegan so much). Interesting coincidence because last night while driving home my grandma asked me how long i’d been a vegetarian and why i was a vegetarian, and she mentioned Temple Grandin, whom i had never heard of. I looked her up online that night, but i had misheard my grandmother, so i was looking up “Temple Brandon” which of course was totally unhelpful, but on the front page of the Why Vegan was a quote from Temple Grandin. Hee.
