He Looks SO Serious

Next year is now. This is always very funny to me. Time is sort of like the moon – always changing. But you can’t really ditch it. Like when I’m in a car, the moon just races along with me.

Dad sent me a postcard from Germany. It’s a frog singing.

He’s wearing striped bathing trunks, the old-fashioned kind. He looks really earnest. I hope nobody makes fun of frog’s singing! For my new year’s resolution, I hope nobody makes fun of me. Or, at least if they do, I hope I don’t care so much (but somehow I always do). Maybe it would just be easier to resolve to sing loudly (inside my head of course) when anybody teases me. That way, I won’t hear it.
