August 17, 2005

I've just come back from my first outdoor adventure of the summer. My brother and I went hiking with my dog Ralph last weekend. I usually find my brother super annoying because he's always showing off and acting like a massive idiot when he's hanging around with his friends. But he was actually pretty fun to be around on this time.

We packed our fishing rods and drove to this lake about an hour outside of the city. We didn't end up catching any fish but we both got bitten about 500 times by mosquitoes. We brought my dog, Ralph, as well. He was super happy to come because he spends most of the day running around the yard and doesn't usually travel to very many cool places. But I don't think Ralph ended up having too much fun. While we were busy fighting off mosquitoes, Ralph got into a nasty confrontation with a skunk. We didn't see the skunk but he certainly left a mark on my poor dog, which meant a long, stinky car ride home.

I hosed down Ralph pretty good and washed him with tomato juice when we got home, but he still smells. My dad's kind of upset that his car smells like skunk, so I don't think he'll be letting my brother borrow the car again anytime soon. And I don't think Ralph will be too keen to join me on any future adventures.

How's your summer been going? Had any cool adventures or embarassing escapades?

    Maybe he likes you, as a friend or as more.

    Friends grow apart as we grow up and change at different rates. It's fine to stop being friends, but it doesn't have to be in a mean way. The best thing to do is talk to her (nicely). You don't have to tell her she's being childish or you feel as if you've matured more. That would be terrible. Talk about things you guys like to do in common or make plans to try new things together. Or don't mention it at all, but don't just begin ignoring her. Eventually the friendship will fade the less time you spend together.

    You should be nice to her. If you have to break the news gently don't make her feel bad just talk to her about and see what she says

    My bff and I were best friends but weve grown apart im getting older and she still wants to do kid stuff I have new friends now I feel like im being mean to her but like doesn't she get the memo I feel both guilty and mad:} Gosh.... put the shoe on  the other foot and see how would you feel if your bff done this on you. You has been bffs for the long time [Im guessing] and your maturing faster than her.  I agrees you are being mean to her if you doesnt discuss how your feeling with her and ignoring / avoiding her or whatever your doing.    She has been the good friend to you and she deserves to understand if you is growing up faster than her.  I really feels sad for how she could be feeling right now. She didnt do anything wrong.  You changed. Not her. Please be nice to your friend/ex friend and let her down gently [if you really has to] ^^ Me opinion
