From 11:00PM PDT on Friday, July 1 until 5:00AM PDT on Saturday, July 2, the Shmoop engineering elves will be making tweaks and improvements to the site. That means Shmoop will be unavailable for use during that time. Thanks for your patience!
Macy tries to compose an email to send Jason, but finally gives up and decides not to reply at all. Stupid Jason.
Her mom is back, and has found out about her new catering job because of a stain on her shirt. Macy couches her confession in a few lies, though, to make it more palatable to her. (Hmmm, so not the most open of relationships, here?)
She's surprised that Macy likes working with Delia, and she tells her that the library job should be her first priority.
Macy agrees, and then proceeds to not tell her mom that Jason basically broke up with her. (Suspicion confirmed.)
Speaking of the library, Bethany and Amanda have now crossed over into the Total Jerk Zone.
They know that Jason dumped Macy, and are making no secret of it. Talk about Mean Girls.
That night, Delia calls Macy to ask if she might be able to come over and help her make finger sandwiches for a luncheon the next day.
Macy's about to say no, but then she realizes that it's a beautiful summer night, and she has nothing else to do, really. Why not spend some time making sammies?
Delia gives her directions, and she heads out.
Of course, like Delia herself, the directions are a little nutty, so Macy gets lost and keeps passing the same country produce stand.
Finally, the lady running the stand calls out to her and tells her where to turn and to watch out for the big hole in the road, right past the sculpture.
The sculpture turns out to be a huge metal hand with a heart in the middle, which distracts Macy just long enough to get her tire stuck in the hole.
Luckily, Wes comes out and tows her car out of danger.
As Macy sits with Delia in her garage and makes sandwiches, Delia tells her that she feels there's a reason for everything—even chaos and problems.
She also tells her that her sister, Wes and Bert's mom, died of breast cancer.
Before she got sick, Wes had fallen in with a bad crowd, and was even arrested; but once she got cancer, he changed. He was the one who had made that huge sculpture.
Macy wishes she could deal with her dad's death the way Delia is dealing with her sister's.
