▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️▪️Your Thursday reading 📖 post
Read this extract from Everything, Everything and answer the following questions:
❓Why is the girl lying 🤥?
❓How does Carla react to her lies?
❓Have you ever kept a secret from your parents?
Carla’s not looking, so I tab over to my Gmail. Thirteen messages from Olly since last night. They’re all sent around 3 a.m. and, naturally, he doesn’t write a subject. I laugh a little and shake my head.
I want to read them, am dying to read them, but I have to be careful with Carla in the room. I glance over and find her staring back at me eyebrows raised. Does she know something?
“What’s so interesting on that laptop?” she asks. God. She definitely knows.
I draw my chair closer to the desk and place my sandwich on the laptop.
“Nothing.” I take a bite of the sandwich. It’s Turkey Tuesday.
“It’s not nothing. Something is making you laugh over there.” She inches closer, smiling at me. Her brown eyes crinkle at the corners and her smile reaches the edge of her face.
“Cat video,” I say through a mouthful of turkey. Ugh, wrong thing to say. Carla lives for cat videos. She thinks they’re the only thing the Internet is good for.
She comes around, stands behind me, and reaches for the laptop.
I drop my sandwich and hug the laptop close to my chest. I’m not a good liar, and I say the first thing that pops into my head. “You don’t want to see this one, Carla. It’s bad. The cat dies.”
We stare at each other in a kind of shocked standoff for a few seconds. I’m shocked because I’m an idiot and I can’t believe that I said that. Carla’s shocked because I’m an idiot and she can’t believe that I said that. Her mouth drops open comically, like a cartoon, and her big round eyes get even bigger and rounder. She bends over at the waist, slaps her knee, and laughs like I’ve never heard her laugh. Who actually slaps their knee while laughing?
“You mean to tell me the only thing you could think to say was that it was a dead cat?” She’s laughing again.
“So you know.”
Rarely has there been a time when it’s so vital for alternative voices to be heard. Over the past six months, learning about horrific trade in #dogmeat (as in eating dogs) in #China has taken me to the brink. I literally can’t talk about it. Neither can I sit back and pretend it’s not happening. People need to know how these sweet, amiable animals are being killed.The trade’s most symbolic event #YulinDogFestival kicks off on #Midsummer Day. So I got a t-shirt printed by @rapanuiofficial. It's simple, no graphics or hashtags. I just need to get the message out there and that message was ‘#stopYulin . Why am I dancing? Because the longer you look at me, the more you'll see the message.

Had a fun day exploring Beijing despite the pouring rain, including Tian'anmen Square, the Palace Museum, Forbidden City, Drum Tower, Olympic Sports Center (the Birds Nest), had the most amazing roast duck, and even had a donkey burger. 37,529 steps later, it was a productive day. -
