Lizzy Llama was standing outside school one day with her friends. They had been back for a couple of weeks, so there was a lot to talk about.
Elsa: Pickles! I hate this phone!
Rosa: What’s wrong with your phone? I thought your parents just got you a new one.
Elsa: It is a new phone. It’s the latest Elkheart.
Tiffany: Ooh! Those are really expensive. What’s wrong with it?
Elsa: The stupid thing keeps saying it doesn’t understand what I’m saying. I mean, seriously? Do you guys think I talk funny?
The other girls look at her in disbelief.
Lizzy: Uh. Yeah. You talk so fast with that weird alpaca accent, that we can’t understand you half the time.
Elsa: It’s not a weird accent. I just spent a lot of time with alpacas when I was little, and some of it stuck.
Tiffany: OK, it’s not a weird accent. You could talk a little slower and see if that helps.
Rose: You know those phones default to camel, right? Did you check the language setting?
Elsa: Why does it default to camel?
Rosa: That’s their biggest customer base. Let me see it.
Rosa spoke a few phrases into the phone and handed it back to Elsa.
Rosa: That should fix your problem.
Elsa: Thanks. Stupid phone.
The bell rang, and they didn’t see each other until lunch.
Tiffany: Did you hear that Jeremy asked Shelley to the Homecoming Dance?
Tiffany: Yep. She told me herself.
Lizzy: Does Rosa know? She has a crush on him.
Rosa stomped up and sat down.
Rosa: Can you believe that idiot Jeremy? Shelley? Seriously? She never says two words. What does he see in her?
Tiffany: Don’t worry, Rosa. Someone better will ask you out. There’s plenty of time.
Rosa: Easy for you to say. You’ve got a boyfriend. Stewart is such a sweetheart.
Tiffany: Yeah. He’s really a great guy.
Lizzy: Elsa, who do you want to go with?
Elsa: I really like Brian. He talked to me in Biology. He’s really smart.
Lizzy (whispering): He’s looking over here.
Elsa: Don’t look! He’ll think we’re talking about him.
Rosa: You are talking about him.
Elsa: That’s not the point. What about you, Lizzy?
Lizzy: I can’t think of anyone who might ask me. I think I might just go with some of the other girls.
Rosa: Ooh. If you do that, I’ll go with you. It sounds like fun.
A few days later, Elsa came to lunch excited.
Elsa: Guess what? I found out that Brian doesn’t have a girlfriend.
Tiffany: How’d you do that?
Elsa: I asked him if he was taking his girlfriend to the dance.
Tiffany: Smooth. Very subtle.
Elsa: So what? I don’t want to waste my time on someone who’s not available.
Tiffany: Good point.
Elsa: Maybe I should ask him to hang out with us after school.
Lizzy: I guess. That sounds a little weird.
Elsa: Maybe you’re right. How about inviting him to the soccer game?
Tiffany: That sounds more normal. That way there’ll be a lot of people around.
Next week: Does the soccer game bring Elsa and Brian closer?

You make my week! This adventure is a hoot! Two teachers in the family so sending it to them.
Thank you! I appreciate your comments.
these new phones are too clever by half. I wondered if the facial recognition would have helped, or maybe hump recognition, MOL
Anyways, football sounds good, but will he be put off if the girls are good players?
Purrs for another great adventure.
Girls are good at everything. Purrs, Snoops and Kommando Kitty (especially girl kitties)
Yep. My phone has trouble understanding alpacas too.
With all the things Apple has thought of, you’d think it wouldn’t be an issue.
I do hope Brian invites Elsa to the dance.
He sounds like a nice llama, doesn’t he?
Oh this sounds like a disaster waitin’ to happen. MOL Can’t wait to see what happens next. Big hugs
Dezi and Raena
