I’ve been reading this fascinating piece of quality literature. It’s called Beth’s Diary. It is pink and it has a dalmation on it. PS- all grammatical errors are the purposeful.
On the cover: My class is smart but I’m smarter. The end.

Dear Diary, I have really improved in handwriting [written barely illegible]. I have a boyfriend [never really a boyfriend]. his name is Chad. I like him to.
Chad Loudermilk and Marshall Morris both like me. Their very cute. Both of them. Chad’s cute and Marshall’s funny. How do I know they like me? You see it all started when I asked my dad to know when a boy likes you. He said “When he teases you. Why?” I changed the subject. So now the word “tease” is very serious to me.

I was chasin Ian and so was Jessica. Jessica and I caught him and I tripped and fell flat on my face and now I have a peanut butter nose. I am going to vote for Bob Dole cause Bill Clinton is a freak show.
Leah started a diary. Here is what it is:
I do not like Ariel.
I do not like Heidi
Brian is a dweeb.
I spent the night with Emily last night and she asked complicated questions. I like to put things in a different way so I’ll put these questions in a play-like form.
Q (Emily): Do you believe in the devil?
A(Beth): I believe in an evil force.
Q: Do you think Methodists are laid back?
A: Oh yeah.
Q: Why do bad things happen to good people?
A: I can’t explain. I’m not God, Emily.
Today in the name of God, I am a juniior higher. They kidnapped us at 7:00 and took us to the Kettle and had breakfast. I also went to the mid high sunday school class. Debbie taught us. We got a turtle named Delilah.
Okay, kids. Ta-ta for now. I have one more section to do but I’m older so it’s mostly the juicy stuff.
