Jamie had a birthday party for her boyfriend last weekend. As birthday parties go, it could have been better - for example, since we're all broke, she couldn't afford to buy him a birthday cake. Instead, she bought cake mixes and made him a cake. She bought plates, glasses and napkins in a Spiderman theme (I know, I know, he was turning 23. But he's very immature) This was all money that was supposed to be going to our phone bill, but I agreed she should put this money into the get together. About six people came, and they visited, played games, ate cake and drank whatever liquor the guests brought.
Afterward, Kyle (the birthday boy) told Jamie he was disappointed. He thought the party could have been better. He was upset that Jamie didn't want to watch a movie at 11 pm, but she says she was too tired. Between her nanny gig, not sleeping, all the baking (she had to make the cakes twice due to a mishap) and cleaning, she was wiped. He was mad.
The next day, Emily said that he was paying quite a bit of attention to Teagan, one of Jamie's youngest friends, who recently turned eighteen. "Quiet!" he'd call out at the party. "Teagan is trying to tell a story."
A few days later, both Jamie and Kyle slept in and were late to hit the 1:30 matinee, and Kyle was so mad that he told her he couldn't look at her face. On the other hand, he could look at Jocie's face. Jocie is Jamie's best friend, who works at the mall. He headed there to chat her up before coming back here, where Jamie broke up with him.
This is the thing with Kyle - he is a Momma's boy who won't stay over at our house in case his mom gets mad. We all thought that was strange for someoone who was almost twenty-three. The other thing is how touchy he is with girls, including Emily. He pokes and pinches, he comes up behind Emily and picks her up off the ground. Em always told us she wanted us to make him stop, but then we'd find her wrestling with him, so we didn't say anything. Once when he scooped her up, I said "Kyle!" and he dropped her, but there was other strange behaviour too. He had a thing for Jamie's friend, Teagan. He'd sit with her on the couch and put his head on her shoulder, but because he did it in front of us we thought he was just weird.
Anyway, Jamie is heart broken. As much as she knows that he wasn't the one for her, he was her first major love affair. I'm worried about her and hope her new job really helps. As for Kyle, who sometimes read my blog before this all happened - I have something to say to you.
I know that something is going on in your head with regard to Teagan. Kyle - it is not cool to start moving in on Jamie's friends. I know you're thinking it. I think you should just mosey along so that you don't have to hurt Jamie more than you already have. Jamie's friends are off limits, but even if Teagan is receptive, I'm blaming you.
