Making a bulletin board

Today was my family picnic, but we didn’t go. Jessica was already sick, and with Namine going to Urgent Care last night, we thought it best to stay home. But that didn’t mean we were just going to mope around.

Misheard lyrics

This morning, after I got Namine her medicine, she asked for some water. “No problem,” I said, getting a glass from the cupboard.
