overrated Movies and television shows would like us to believe that life is better for partygoers who dare to jump into pools with their clothes on But behind the scenes its Starry Eyes Spontaneity is overrated Movies and television shows would like us to believe that life is better for partygoers who dare to jump into pools with their clothes on But behind the scenes its all carefully scripted The water is the right temperature Lighting and angles are carefully considered Dialogue is memorized And thats why it looks so appealingbecause someone carefully planned it all Once you realize this life gets a whole lot simpler Mine did I am a hard core planner and I dont care who knows it I believe in schedules routines washi tape covered calendars bulleted lists in graph paper journals and best laid plans The kind of plans that dont go awry because theyre made with careful consideration of all possibilities and outcomes No winging it no playing things by ear Thats how disasters happen But not for me I make blueprints for my life and stick to them Take for instance summer break School starts back in three weeks and before I turn eighteen and embark on my senior year this is my blueprint for the rest of the summer Plan one Two mornings each week work at my parents business Everhart Wellness Clinic I fill in at the front desk for their normal receptionist whos taking a summer course at UC Cal in Berkeley My moms an acupuncturist and my father is a massage therapist and they own the clinic together This means that instead of flipping burgers and being yelled at by random strangers outside a drive through window I get to work in a Zen like reception area where I can keep everything perfectly organized and know exactly which clients are scheduled to walk through the door No surprises no drama Predictable just the way I like it Plan two Take photos of the upcoming Perseid meteor shower with my astronomy club Astronomy is my holy grail Stars planets moons and all things space Future NASA astrophysicist right here Plan three Avoid any and all contact with our neighbors the Mackenzie family These three things all seemed perfectly possible until five minutes ago Now my summer plans are standing on shaky ground because my mom is trying to talk me into going camping Camping Me Look I know nothing about the Great Outdoors Im not even sure I like being outside Seems to me society has progressed far enough that we should be able to avoid things like fresh air and sunlight If I want to see wild animals Ill watch a documentary on TV Mom knows this But right now shes trying really hard to sell me on some sort of Henry David Thoreau nature is good idealism while Im sitting behind our wellness clinics front desk And sure shes always preaching about the benefits of natural health and vegetarianism but now shes waxing poetic about the majestic beauty of the great state of California and what a singular opportunity it would be for me to experience the wilderness before school starts Be honest Can you really picture me camping I ask her tucking dark corkscrew curls behind my ears Not camping Zorie she says Mrs Reid is inviting you to go glamping Dressed in gray tunic scrubs embroidered with the clinics logo she leans across the front desk and talks in an excited hushed voice about the wealthy client whos currently relaxing on an acupuncture table in the back rooms enjoying the dated yet healing sounds of Enya patron saint of alternative health clinics around the world Glamping I repeat skeptical Mrs Reid says they have reservations for these luxury tents in the High Sierras somewhere between Yosemite and Kings Forest National Park Mom explains Glamorous camping Get it Glamping You keep saying that but I still dont know what it means I tell her How can a tent be luxurious Arent you sleeping on rocks Mom leans closer to explain Mrs Reid and her husband got a last minute invitation to a colleagues chalet in Switzerland so they have to cancel their camping trip They have a reservation for a fancy tent This glamping compound This isnt some weird hippie cult is it Mom groans dramatically Listen They have a chef who prepares gourmet meals an outdoor fire pit hot showersthe works Hot showers I say with no small amount of sarcasm Thrill me baby She ignores this The point is you arent actually roughing it but you feel like it The compound is so popular that they do a lottery for the tents a year in advance Everythings already paid for meals and lodging Mrs Reid said it would be shame to let it go to waste which is why they are letting Reagan take some of her friends there for the weeka last hurrah trip with the girls before senior year starts Mrs Reid is the mother of Reagan Reid star athlete ueen bee of my class and my kind of sort of friend Actually Reagan and I used to be good friends when we were younger Then her parents came into money and she started hanging out with other people Plus she was training constantly for the Olympics Before I knew it we justgrew apart Until last fall when we started talking again during lunchtime at school Would be good for you to spend some time outside Mom says fiddling with her dark hair as she continues to persuade me to go on this crazy camping trip The Perseid meteor shower is happening next week I remind her She knows I am a strict planner Unexpected twists and surprises throw me off my game and everything about this campingsorry glampingtrip is making me very very anxious Mom makes a thoughtful noise You could bring your telescope to the glamping compound Stars at night hiking trails in the day Hiking sounds like something Reagan could be into She has rock hard thighs and washboard abs I practically get winded walking two blocks to the coffee shop a fact of which Id like to remind Mom but she switches gears and plays the guilt card Mrs Reid says Reagans been having a really tough time this summer she says Shes worried about her I think she.

S hoping this trip will help cheer her up after what happened at the trials in June Reagan fell Im talking splat face plant and didnt place in the Olympic track trials It was her big shot for moving forward She basically has no chance at the next summer Olympics and will have to wait fouryears Her family was heartbroken Even so it surprises me to hear that her mother is worried about her Another thought crosses my mind Did Mrs Reid ask me to go on this trip or did you hustle her into inviting me A sheepish smile lifts my moms lips A little from column A little from column B I uietly drop my head against the front desk Come on she says shaking my shoulder slowly until I lift my head again She was surprised Reagan hadnt asked you already so clearly theyve discussed you coming along And maybe you and Reagan both need this Shes struggling to get her mojo back And youre always saying you feel like an outsider in her pack of friends so heres your chance to spend some time with them out of school You should be falling down at my feet Mom teases How about a little Thank you coolest mom ever for schmoozing me into the event of the summer Youre my hero Joy Everhart She clasps her hands to her heart dramatically Youre so weird I mumble pretending to be apathetic She grins Arent you lucky I am Actually yes I know that she genuinely wants me to be happy and would do just about anything for me Joy is actually my stepmom My birth mother died unexpectedly of an aneurysm when I was eight back when we lived across the Bay in San Francisco Then my dad suddenly decided he wanted to be a massage therapist and spent all the life insurance money on getting licensed Hes impulsive like that Anyway he met Joy at an alternative medicine convention They got hitched a few months later and we all moved here to Melita Hills where they rented out space for this clinic and an apartment next door Sure at the ripe age of thirty eight Joy is several years younger than my father and because shes Korean American Ive had to deal with genius observations from bigoted people pointing out the obvious that shes not my real mom As if I werent aware that shes Asian and Im so Western and pale Im rocking an actual vitamin D deficiency To be honest in my mind Joy is my mom now My memories of Life Before Joy are slippery Over the years Ive grown far closer to her than I am to my dad Shes supportive and encouraging I just wish she were a touch less granola and chipper But this time as much as I hate to admit it her enthusiasm about the glamping trip might be warranted Spending uality time outside of school with Reagans inner circle would definitely strengthen my social standing which always feels as if its in danger of collapsing when Im hanging around people who havemoney or popularity Id like to feelcomfortable around them Around Reagan too I just wish shed asked me to go camping herself instead of her mother The clinics front door swings open and my father breezes into the waiting room freshly shaved and dark hair neatly slicked back Zorie did Mr Wiley call He canceled todays massage appointment I inform him But he rescheduled for a half session on Thursday A half session is half an hour and half an hour euals half the money but my father uickly masks his disappointment You could tell him his best friend just died and hed pivot toward a meet up at the racuetball club without breaking a sweat Diamond Dan people call him All sparkle and glitz Did Mr Wiley say why he couldnt make it he asks An emergency at one of his restaurants I report A TV chef is stopping by to film a segment Mr Wiley is one my dads best clients Like most of the people who come here he has money burning a hole in his wallet and can afford above average prices for massage or acupuncture Our wellness clinic is the best in Melita Hills and my mom has even been written up in the San Francisco Chronicle as one of the Bay Areas top acupuncturistswell worth a trip across the Bay Bridge My parents charge clients accordingly Its just that the number of those clients has been slowly but surely dwindling over the last year The primary cause of that dwindling and the object of my dads anger is the business that set up shop in the adjoining space To our shared mortification we are now located next to a store that sells adult toys Yep those kind of toys Kind of hard to ignore the giant vaginal shaped sign out front Our well heeled customers sure havent Classy people usually dont want to park in front of a sex shop when they are heading to a massage therapy appointment My parents found this out pretty uickly when longtime clients started canceling their weekly sessions Those who havent fled our desirable location near all the upscale boutiue shops on Mission Street are too important to lose as Dad reminds me every chance he gets And thats why I know hes upset by Mr Wileys cancellationit was his only appointment todaybut when he leaves the reception area and heads to his office so that he can stew about it in private Mom remains calm So she says Should I tell Mrs Reid youll go glamping with Reagan Like Im going to give her a definitive answer on the spot without considering all the factors At the same time I hate to be the wet blanket on her sunny enthusiasm Dont be cautious Be careful she reminds me Cautious people are afraid of the unknown and avoid it Careful people plan so that theyreconfident when they face the unknown She tells me this every time Im resistant to a change in plans Well research everything together Ill consider it I tell her diplomatically I guess you can tell Mrs Reid that Ill text Reagan for the details and make up my mind later But you did well Dr Pokenstein Her smile is victorious Speaking of I better get back to her and take out the needles before she falls asleep on the slab Oh I almost forgot Did FedEx come Nope Just the regular mail She frowns I got an email notification that a package was delivered Crap on
