"Let It Go"
By Brenda B. Covert
1 Remember that new friend I wrote about last week? I mean Olivia, that girl who just moved into my apartment building. It's time for an update on that friendship, and I'll begin by borrowing one of Granddad's favorite expressions: she's as nutty as a fruitcake!
2 Olivia isn't bothered by anything! If someone cuts in line ahead of us at the pool and I start to tell that person off, Olivia says, "Let it go." If I catch my little sister snooping in my room, Olivia says, "Let it go." If a boy makes fun of us and I complain, Olivia says, "Let it go." And, what do you suppose she says when I'm mad because Mom forgot something important? Yeah, that's right. "Let it go."
3 I'd like to let her go! I'd let her go take a long walk off a short pier. I'd let her go fly a kite. I'd let her jump off a bridge!
4 Okay, I've gotta calm down now. I'm taking a deep breath ... there. That's better.
