Wow!!!! The "talk" came a few days late. Too bad. You never know, Jennifer might have been scared off earlier that night at the park if V.D. and pregnancy had been on her mind. Her last sex talk was in health class probably in 5th grade. Health class was so clinical and she was so young--that none of it seemed relevant at the time. Sex was still something that she had no plans to ever do!
Jennifer had a special blanket she called Blue Blanket. Jennifer doesn't remember sucking her fingers until she was 14! Is it strange to go that long? It seems strange to me. Obviously she decided it was time to grow up. This may have had something to do with her experience in the park. It seemed silly to "be a woman" and continue to suck her fingers at night.
Jennifer kept Blue Blanket because she still loved to smell it. I do believe that all the moving around and changing schools promoted her extreme insecurity. Jennifer slept with her blanket until her wedding day. Once a wife, she felt silly sleeping with a security blanket. She put it in the closet.
It stayed in her closet until her first child was born. When she saw her baby's attachment to his blanket--she felt silly once again that she still had hers! She decided it was time to get rid of it forever. Jennifer wrapped it in a garbage bag and placed it gently in the trash can.
In ancient Greece a child is considered a child until he or she is thirty years old. Yep, that's about right!
Jennifer was amazed that she took a plane trip and not one of her animals died!! Pepsi is her blue parakeet.
Jennifer loved her evening with Luke! He was and remains a true gentleman. He was seventeen years old at the time. If he was interested in Jennifer, he knew better than to act on it. He became her first male friend. Wrestling with him was fun because it was safe.
However, he shouldn't have taken her on the scooter ride. Jennifer fell in love with Luke that night. She fell hard.
