January 5, 1964
When I finally got to sleep at Lauri’s, I dreamed I went to the prom with Fred. Marty came over to see Lauri and when they were in the other room, I spelled out HOWARD, FRED, MIKE. LAURI AND SHARRIE with hairpins. They came in to look…I talked to Mark Ditchner and pretended I was some girl named Lenore who likes him…He loved my sexy voice…Marty took us to his uncle’s house. He was deaf, and we stayed a long time. We went to Andy’s and bought submarine sandwiches . I kept telling Marty he talked like Ernie. He got mad because I kept talking about Ernie Ernie Ernie. We went to some girl’s house and talked about Mike and what a sex fiend Fred is. Went home. Lauri drove to White Front’s and I swiped two records and a can of hair spray. Ernie called out of the clear blue sky and told me Howard was in jail for breaking into a car and stealing records. Wish Fred would call. I really miss him now. School starts tomorrow… I’m so afraid…I don’t have my book report or term paper!!! I think I like Fred, because he puts me in my place. I think he hates me now.
