Hello, judges. I am so excited to be competing here in the Little Miss Glitz and Glam Arizona pageant. I am contestant number 40, the creepy little kid in every horror movie ever.

My name is Penelope, and I am nine years old, as I have been for the last 250 years. I’m competing here today with my twin sister — she is standing right here, next to me. Can’t you see her? We love holding hands and walking slowly in perfect unison.

Dear Abby,

I consider myself a pretty easy going person. When my friends want to hang out at the mall, I’ll meet them there. When my chemistry study group wants to meet at the library, I’ll also go, even though Kevin never really participates. What I’m saying is that I tend to go with the flow and I don’t make a big deal about anything. However, the other day my boyfriend did something that got me a little annoyed.
