All But Alice Phyllis Reynolds Naylor

Alice is one of the beautiful people, but who knew that being popular was so... boring? Plus, it means leaving some friends behind...

Some comments:

Ok, what the !@#$ is up with all the freak-out over pierced ears? I can understand waiting until you have it done, or even limiting the types of earrings, but seriously? All the adults disapproving because it's bad? Really? You'd think Aunt Sally, who's always trying to girl Alice up would be all gung-ho, not all "you're going to get blood poisoning and DIE" about it! I can understand the "make sure it's sterile" thing but... Dad and Lester and Aunt Sally and all the adults being so horrified and shocked? Seems weird.

What a neat poem in your lower post! And it does seem weird to freak over pierced ears. I mean, body piercings, yeah. But ears? People get their babies' ears pierced! lol
