A while back, I read it out loud to my husband who couldn't stop laughing. There seems to be a certain theme ... judge for yourself.
Cover: If anyone finds this please return it as soon as possible without reading the book!
Oct 27, 1983: ..."I got sort of a crush on Mark but I won't admit it to anyone. I'm not over Steve yet..."
Oct 28, 1983: "I love Mark and Steve both and I probably will never get over Steve but Mark's taking his place."
Oct 29, 1985: "Dani used to like a fellow named Barry but unfortunately, I think I am making him think that I like him! Gross!!"
Jan 2, 1986: "I am in love. Not an infatuation or a brief crush but goodness to truly love.... with Barry. Anyway, I have Barry's phone number and we called him up and said "Merry Christmas" and hung up. I called him again and this is how our conversations went:
"Speaking" or something like that
"We want to apologize for the other phone calls."
"Who are you?"
"Who are you?"
"Well, if you don't know that then you're retarded."
I can't remember in detail how it went but it was major thrilling to me."
May 23, 1986: "I like Raymond again!"
Aug 27, 1987: "I feel so exhilerated! On the way home, I held Andrew's hand...I'll remember it forever!"
Nov 2, 1987: "After I broke up with Andrew, I felt really depressed. I don't think I'll forget him really but it's hard to look back right now. The break up is too new. But not new enough to stop me from finding a new boyfriend. His name is James."
Feb 5, 1988: "One Tues. Feb 2 (what would have been our third month anniversary), James and I broke up."
Feb 26, 1988: "Today I took the bus home. I was sitting at the back ... when this guy comes and sits next to me. [ed. a conversation ensues]. Wow! I think I'm in love!"
I judiciously omitted the REALLY embarassing entries. What's also amazing is that I managed to maintain an A+ average.
Anyways. I throw my husband under the bus a lot. I thought it was only fair to see what the view looks like from there...
It's PRETTY FREAKING CRAPPY!
