"Lola" by Jerome Goldberg

" ... Whatever Lola wants, Lola gets ..." It is an old song and it was certainly true in my house. I think Lola was my mother's best friend and she came over to visit almost every day. Sometimes she would play with me, but most of the time she would stay with Mom in the kitchen or in her study.

Occasionally, when my father was on a business trip, she would stay overnight. And also sometimes when Mom went to visit Grandma, Lola would stay overnight with Dad.

I liked Lola but I was jealous. I was never allowed to stay in Mom and Dad's bedroom all night, even when there was thunder. But she was! I would stare at the closed door and mope.

Then one day, Lola stopped coming. I asked Mom what happened. Mom told me that Lola was pregnant and she would come back when she was ready. I had mixed emotions. I did not know if I was happy or sad.

Then, about two weeks later, Mom and Dad took me across the street to see Lola's puppies and let me pick out which one would come to live with us.

Wow, I was happy!
