January 10, 1964, Friday, OK day
Lannie had to take me to school because Marilyn had to go to detention. Lannie lost the election for commission of publicity to Mark Clay. Today is the last day of pledging!!! Tomorrow night is “Hell Night.” Marilyn took me home. Then Lauri, Lannie and I went shopping at the One-Two-Three Shop and I got some $15.00 Capri’s. Lauri and I talked about Fred and Mike. Went up to Lauri’s and called (the guy she likes,) Mike. Pretended I was from Westchester High, calling my boyfriend Michael. He fell for it. Talked for 25 minutes. Said I was going steady. He said he was going with a girl named Lauri from Culver. Lauri couldn’t believe he said that and was sooooo happy. He was stoked on my voice. Went home to bed.
Shopping , talking on the phone to boys, hanging out with your friends and listening to the top hits like HE’S SO FINE…… Not much has changed today with teenage girls has it.
