Y’know, it’s funny that you mention it, cause, like, yeah—I’ve actually made some unexpected friends after the whole Weirdmageddon thing? I guess a good life-and-death apocalypse situation kinda makes social ladders vanish completely, huh?
For example, I thought Robbie was just, like, one of those goth weirdos that grew out of pods in the back of Edgy On Purpose or something. But turns out, he’s actually pretty chill? We both kinda bonded over how sucky our parents can be, and he loaned me some of his CDs in exchange for some of my makeup.
Not that I can’t afford all these CDs or whatever, but honestly? Half of these bands are mega obscure and, like, I wouldn’t have even known they existed without his help. I mean, have any of you guys even heard of “The Handlebar Bros?” Weird, but cool.
As for Gideon, not gonna lie, he’s still ultra creepy at times. But I did find out he had some pretty good hairstyling tips, so we’re kinda testing the waters talking about that or whatever. I dunno, things are still pretty weird there, considering he’s got wanted criminals following him around wherever he goes and stuff, but like, they’re not too bad.
They’re basically butlers, just…on parole. I can live with that. Kinda.
But honestly, the coolest person I’ve started hanging out with is probably Wendy Corduroy. Like, okay, I thought she was kinda a redneck lumberjack at first? (Redneck, not redhead, though, well, I guess she’s still the second one). But like, despite that whole Northwest/Common lumberjack tension or whatever from that whole haunted mansion thing, she and her family are actually pretty…great?
I mean, her dad’s kinda wild…I think he like, wrestled a bear once or something…but Wendy and her brothers really know how to like, have fun and stuff! And just, like…I dunno…she’s got a brother about my age, and he’s…sorta cute…
I mean, ugh! Not like I’d ever date a Corduroy or
No, seriously, I wouldn’t.
Cool as they are, they smell like yaks and tree bark.
Friends or not, that’s just, like, not my type.
