Scalzi's Weekend Assignment #6
My best friend from childhood was Patti. We did lots of things together. But one of our favorite things was our club activities. We invented our own club. It had four members: me, Patti, my sister Arielle, and Patti's sister Debbie. The name of the Club was The Camel Club. The motto and secret saying was: We Are Camel People, Camel People We Are! Our mascot was, well, you guessed it, a camel. I had a plastic camel that we used. We must have thought we were Beduins or something.
The club did have some useful purpose. We produced a little magazine. It had lots of articles and lots of fun stuff to do in it. Everybody was assigned something different to do in it. I think we all aspired to be writers back then!
Today Patti isn't a writer, but she does work in a used bookstore. She absolutely loves her job. She lives on the beach along the east coast. She buys books to read. We stay in touch on occasion by email. Neither of us hold a fascination of camels anymore.
