Fifth Grade Diary
January 1989 - approx. January 1990
Today is the day for the Valentine party. Lindsay is sick, but, of course, Mom's gonna keep her out of school, but she will bring her in just for the Valentine party.
I went to Showbiz Pizza Place today! A guy was there. He was probably drunk 'cause he kept swaying. Then I had 7 tickets And I asked for a 5-ticket eraser. I seperated 5 from the 7 I had. he plunked a container in front of me and said "That's all we got left." I took one + handed him my tickets, but he did not take them! I ripped him off. Then I got another one + gave him 5 tickets. Then, Lindsay asked for 2 rulers which were 10 tickets each. She gave him 20 tickets + decided she did not want a ruler. So she said "I wanna trade my rulers in for a purse. There was a red square one and a blue circle one, but Lindsay wanted a red circle one! he yanked out a blue + red round one, gave them both to her, and didn't even take the rulers back! Lindsay spent 20 tickets + got 40 tickets worth of prizes!
This morning, Before I got up but I was awake, Patty's hand came over to my butt and started to tickle it right above my crack. So I grabed her hand and threw it onto her side of the bed. Then she kicked me in my Akili's Tendon. So I decided not to wake her up. Then I got up. a few minutes later Patty sat straight up in bed. The first words out of her mouth were, "Did Mom wake us up yet?" I said "How come you always ask that question Patty? No." Then why didn't you wake me up?" I said "I didn't want to" Even though It was something much more serious. I said "There's no law that said we have to wake our sisters up!" I said "Besides, Mom hasn't woken us up yet, and she wakes us up about a quarter to seven." Then Patty said "Whenever I get up, you never wake me up." (I did every time except this time "You never know what time it is, and when I look it's always at least 7 o'clock!" She acted like I controled the time!
I have a friend. Her name is Kathy her little sister's name is Julie! I think I'll write in script now. I have Meghan + Ellen + Grace for pen pals. Then some girl named Amber popped out of nowhere. She wanted to be my pen pal. We have a playroom, a pool, a billiard room, + a jacuzzi in our own house!! Also a ladies' buttwasher! It looks like
I HATE her!
Lindsay tried to get under my feet. I tripped and mom yelled at me!
I told Lindsay that she could save energy by crying all at once, and not whining it out, bit by bit. Just Trying To be Helpful.
Patricia + Lindsay were playing teenagers (how dumb!) they had taken my makeup + used it. I wanted it back so they stacked it outside the closet door. I took it piece by piece so they wouldn't know I had it. I looked for my favorite lipstick. It was gone! I counted my lipsticks. 7. I ran downstairs as Patricia came upstairs. I told 'er she had it. She said she + Lindsay hadn't even taken it for they knew I didn't appreciate them using my favorite lipstick. I looked and counted. 8! I thought my diary was in Patricia's secret drawer. She ran in. And yelled "What are you doing, being in my secret drawer!" Blah. She says my pink headband is full of cooties!
I remember that when I went shopping I picked 3 clips, one for each kid. A pink heart for me a blue circle for Patty a peach rectangle for Lindsay + Mom insisted that I give them first choice! Lindsay picked the pink heart. Patricia picked the blue circle I had the peach rectangle Today was a choice of breakfast Lindsay got the apple jacks + gave Patricia + I a choice of corn pops or honey smacks. Patty immediately picked up the honey smacks.
