Lynettea said to the teacher and other students at her Japanese class that I had been too busy getting my work published in an American magazine to write anything for homework. They all laughed.
I usually help her by writing something for her to read.
One of the students laughed so much he nearly fell out of his chair.
They may think it is very funny, but I find it insulting, especially as another American magazine has now accepted one of my poems.
Lynettea said, 'You will be catching up with Diamond as an author, dear Sasha.' Maybe she was saying 'dear' to placate me. She knows I don't like being laughed at.
Usually I get terms like, 'you are my lovey dovey kitty', a bit juvenile for me now, as I am nearly one and a half years old.
