R.I.P. Michael


My friend, Nicki, reminded me off an awesome Michael Jackson memory that she and I share. When I was younger Nicki and I were inseparable and my sisters and I would spend the night at her house all the time. We would always watch Dirty Dancing and some weird Michael Jackson movie about him saving the world or something. Every summer we would go camping at the beach with her extended family for a week.

One year, there were some really annoying girls in the campsite next to ours. So, we did what any normal pre-teen girls would do. We lied to them and made them feel bad. We told them that we were all siblings, our parents were dead and our grandparents had full custody. Oh, and we were rich and lived next to Michael Jackson. We even sent Nicki away to "cry" for our dead parents.  We had lots and lots of other lies we told them and it was a LOT of fun.

The girls totally believed it and tried to one up us by pretending like some stuffed animal were a real litter of puppies. Luckily, we didn't fall for it....we were way too good at our own game.

Fun times with the Peters family! I miss those guys...maybe I'll try to go camping with them this year. Hmmm....

Now we just have to hope that Madonna doesn't die, since we were related to her. That would definitely call for some more fake crying from Nicki :) Come beach camping!!!!!
