Sometimes I forget but then I remember again. So that holiday doesn't count. I can't tell whether Emma and Luke are lonely. They have each other, but that doesn't prove anything. I get worried that they're making me feel lonelier by being lonely together. That doesn't make sense so it's probably true. My dad seems drunk. It's hard to tell.

I'd not thought about that until now, the guest list. I don't think I know anyone else who would go. Hopefully after the funeral Luke will want a break so we can go somewhere else and get stoned and pretend that his dad isn't dead and we can be stupid and Emma can hug Luke and me and I can pretend that we're all in love with each other, in the way that I've always wanted.
