Hello future readers!
Yesterday (Friday) was our last day of school. We all hugged Miss LaSalle , Mrs. Johnson and Mrs. Taylor good-bye. and then some of us went over to Sam's Snack Shack to hang out.
While all of us were eating, rapping and playing pinball, a new boy came in. When Sunny went over to the jukebox to pick out a song to play, she almost ran right into him!
Sunny introduced herself and asked the new boy his name. He told her his name was Kyle Lewis and he was new in town. He had been walking around, checking out Springfield, and this seemed like the happening place to be, so he came in. Sunny told him that Sam's was one of the grooviest spots in town. Then he came over to our table and introduced himself to us.
Wow, a new boy? I knew Danny and Jason were gonna be thrilled! Robyn and I said hi, and Danny waved him over to the pinball machine.
The guys introduced themselves and asked Kyle if he was any good at pinball. Kyle dug a quarter out of his pocket and told the guys it was his favorite game.
And was he ever good at his favorite game! He scored over 2000 points off of one ball! The guys couldn't believe it!
Jason asked him what his secret was. Kyle told him that his father used to own a little diner in Laguna Beach, and he was in there all the time playing pinball. I knew Danny and Jason had found a new best friend.
Robyn wanted to play a song on the jukebox, but she didn't have any more change. Kyle walked over and gave her a dime. Wow, what a groovy guy!
Robyn put in the dime and chose "Superstition" by Stevie Wonder. Then Robyn and Kyle started dancing. Far out!
We all dig that song, so the rest of us joined them and danced too!
When the song was over, Sunny went over to watch Danny play pinball, Jason and Robyn danced some more, and I sat down to finish my banana split. Kyle sat down with me. He told me banana splits were his favorite dessert and ordered one too. I looked at his t-shirt and asked if he'd seen the movie "Jaws". He said yes, but he was sorry he did. He told me his old house was 2 blocks from the beach, and he spent a lot of time swimming and surfing there, but after he saw "Jaws", he didn't go near the water for almost a month! I don't blame him! Just the trailers on TV scared the heck outta me! But, he's over that now. I knew he get along great with Cheryl. She used to live in San Clemente, which is kinda close to Laguna Beach, and spent a lot of time hanging out at the beach, too.
I guess as far as boys go, Kyle's pretty cool. It was nice of him to give Robyn a dime for the jukebox, and to sit down and rap with me. I remember when Danny first moved into our neighborhood and I thought all boys were creepy. I suppose I'm just more used to them now. I told him it was good he moved into town just in time for summer vacation. He said that his mom thought so too, so he could have almost 3 months to meet all us kids, and not feel like the "new boy" when school starts in the Fall. I know it was kinda weird for Jason when he moved back here last summer, so he would probably make Kyle feel right at home. Anyway, it's good to have a new friend. Welcome to Springfield, Kyle!
Until next time, future readers,
