On my way to Baabara’s birthday party today, I ran into Dr. Shrunk for just the second time. This time around, he let me choose an emotion that I wanted to work on. I had four choices to pick from: realization, sadness, scheming, and agreement.
“Scheming” sounded different from others I was familiar with, so I chose it. I had to tap Shrunk as he used the emotion. But when he used it, I saw that scheming is really just the emotion I knew as mischief.
Once I got the timing of the tap correct, I learned the emotion for myself. He was pleased with my progress, and he said that feelings are like toes.
He said if they can’t breathe free, they’re going to stink pretty bad.
With that unexpected therapy session behind me, I continued on to Baabara’s birthday party. But I made sure not to forget the “scheming” theme. 😉
Big Top was there to help Baabara celebrate. But sadly, there was no cake and no balloons. It was just Big Top hanging out at Baabara’s house.
I then had the opportunity to give her a present. Remember earlier this month, when I used a tin can (garbage that I fished out of the river) to catch a fly? I didn’t throw that can away, instead I re-used it…as Baabara’s birthday present. Enjoy! 😉
She called it an “interesting choice,” but she didn’t seem upset. In return, she gave me an anatomical model as a party favor. Big Top seemed to notice the lack of food at the party, since he asked if I brought some snacks. 😛
Back outside, I found a new message of the week on the bulletin board. It said that balls and windows don’t mix.
There was also a new “Talking to Myself” post. It says “When I see my sister talking to Pete, it makes me feel kinda strange…” This could be the best evidence I’ve seen yet that it’s really Phyllis writing these things.
When I visited Rod, I saw that he was all packed up and ready to move out of town. And yet, he still was talking about what was in his drawers.
After telling him to stay in town twice, he agreed to reconsider. So he should be around for a while still.
Puddles asked me for some new clothing, so I bought a big dot shirt for her at Able Sisters. She loved it, and she gave me an HMD (head-mounted display, I presume). I put it on right away.
Kiki was still sick, so I bought her some medicine for the 4th time. She really appreciated it.
