Simon's Blog - August 16, 2005

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?

Later,
Simon

    lisp or not, i'm sure you're a nice person. i don't even know if you can get rid of this lisp- maybe practice speaking at home, try different movements with your lips or mouth, i don't know. don't let a lisp make you less confident, that doesn't change anything about you as a person. be yourself and be confident.

    Dear Dish it, Im already a grown teen but I don't think I am that easy to get along whem meeting new friends in school. And I think its because I lose my confidence cause I got some speech defect which called lisp. I often sometimes looks weird when theyre talking to me and It really affects me. What should I do? I have read and tried all the practice and therapy I read in the internet for a year but it doesnt make a change. I hope you help me

    you really need to have a proper chat with your parents. you're doing really well in school, and seem to have a good set of friends, and tell them that you should be able to go out, i mean you've done nothing wrong and surely should be allowed a little freedom in return?
