My roommate put this on my wall. She knew I’d understand. I’m sure you’ll understand too.
i was talking to another counselor last night, bemoaning that i was trying to find a job in ottawa instead of going back to our camp on the east coast. to cheer me up, she started to recite her favourite camp memory:
Sage: “Did I ever tell you about that one time I was in a tent with Boomer and Shine and Cherry, but Cherry wasn’t there…”
Sage: “And we had just woken up and hey! You’re already laughing. This is great.”
Me: “Sagey, you’ve told me this story five hundred times. Boomer’s told me this story. Shine’s told me this story. Even Cherry’s told me this story, and we were never at camp at the same time.”
Me: “Keep telling me anyway. I’m already laughing.”
Sage: “And Boomer said, ‘Hey, did you hear thunder?’”
Sage: “And I said, ‘Yeah, I had a sunburn once, on my shoul- wait, what?’”
