Well, Tobi finally made it home from camp this morning (about time, too. Things were getting SO boring around here).
And anyway, I could tell right away that something big must have happened with Colette. He was so much quieter than usual (and trust me, normally he never shuts up… especially about her). And he was acting really… weird. It’s kinda hard to describe, I guess.
But I know my Bruder better than anyone. And I can always tell when he’s hiding something.
So tonight after dinner, I basically cornered him in his bedroom and managed to weasel it out him.
And oh boy, did he have a lot to tell.
Turns out he didn’t blow it with Colette after all. Pretty much the opposite, actually. I mean, it sounds like there was definitely some, uh, “blowing” involved, but…
Okay, that was terrible. Sorry.
I guess I shouldn’t really be surprised. I’ve always known Tobi was gonna be the first one to go all the way. I guess I just never figured it’d happen so fast. I mean, a few weeks ago, he and Colette had never even held hands. And now…
He told me all about it, and, well, it sounds pretty friggin’ amazing. And I mean, I’m SURE he was exaggerating a little, but… Even if he was, I guess I’m still a little jealous. Who wouldn’t be?
But mostly I’m just happy for him. I mean, he’s been practically worshipping this girl for YEARS. And I guess she must’ve been feeling the same about him.
Now he’s just got Mama to deal with. No clue how he’s gonna manage that… And neither is he, from what he was telling me earlier.
We talked about Mama for a long time, actually. And how damn weird she gets whenever Tobi tries to talk about Colette. It doesn’t make any sense. And now that they’re together, well… I have a feeling things are just gonna get worse.
I mean, Mama never had a problem when I was dating that bitch Elena. She was always invited over for dinner and stuff. And yeah, maybe she does only live on the other side of the city (though I sure wouldn’t mind shipping her off to another country…), but still. Can’t Tobi get one visit now and then?
Even Jonas hasn’t been able to give us a clear answer. “She has her reasons.” I remember him saying. “But I’m working on her. She’ll come around, don’t worry.”
Yeah, right. I’ll believe it when I see it.
