"Caroline, the tracking information hasn't updated yet. Be patient." Maddy looked around.
Yeah, right. I've seen this girl when she's waiting for something like a old music mag from eBay with a particularly hot picture of John Ashton. She's even more impatient than I am. (But then again, we are talking about John Ashton here! No offense to Roger Morris, but I for one am really glad that Richard Butler and company decided to keep the cute guitarist all those years ago....hey, a doll can crush on someone, can't she?)
"Oh man..." John-John was looking over my shoulder. "Am I really coming that unstitched?"
I looked. "No. You look fine." Apparently the camera not only adds ten pounds, it also adds loose threads.
"You're not coming unstitched," Maddy said. "It's the overstitching." She had to reinforce the seam under his chin with a hand-stitched row, and sometimes it shows.
"I hate it."
"Emmaline! Maddy just made that."
"But it's not...it's too bright...."
I don't know about this girl....
John-John thinks that poor Emmaline is just really insecure. I know her two sisters found homes right away, but she was up for adoption for months - something that just doesn't happen to us Hittys. And then she has so much trouble finding anything that actually fits her....
I think a self-esteem intervention is in order here. Now I just have to figure out how....
