A Diary for My Yunduo'er ?
Day 1592, Apr 23, 2022 (Sat)
"I'm bored," you said soon after we got to the small central plaza of the nearby park. But shortly after for you a light appeared at the end of the tunnel. The sight of a small kite-holding girl instantly perked you up. You freed your kite from my grasp and stuck around that girl, trying to excite her attention, but she remained noncommittal for quite a while.
"Yunduo'er, look, she's not interested, you can go somewhere else," I reminded you. I sometimes wonder if you feel lonely with mummy and daddy so outside you are always on the lookout for some reassuring company while turning your back on us.
"But I want to find my best friend," you said. Some time later, your efforts paid off – you and that girl buddied up to each other. You ran frantically on the plaza and invited your new friend to pedal your bike.
Two hours later, you said you wanted to go back home. Your face had flushed – you must have sweated buckets. Your aluminum steed schlepped a pooped out girl back home.
