January 19, 1964 Sunday. BITCHEN NIGHT!!!
Got up at eleven. Went to Lauri’s and slept until 4:30. Went home and much to my surprise, Howard called. Said he had called Thursday, (so Ernie didn’t lie to me.) A lot of people were here at our house tonight for dinner. Sort of having a party. Howard asked if I could get out for a little while. Mom said yes. I was so happy I couldn’t believe it. Howard came at 6:30 and had to meet everyone here. He got sort of mad. We went to Lou’s house. Bryan Fergason and Niles were there, (from his club, WEST SIDE SURFERS). Howard wouldn’t give my phone number to them. They all seemed to think I was cute. We left, went to eat. He eats a lot. Went by the show, but didn’t want to go in. Went back to Lous’s. Started making out and I loved every minute of of. All of a sudden there were boy’s all over the car watching us. They started shaking the car. I swear it almost turned over. They left and we started kissing again. We got in the back seat. He said he never used the back seat. I don’t think he’s taken anyone out since me. I just love him. We almost fell asleep in the back seat. I didn’t fight him off like before, when tried to French Kiss me for the first time, (my first kiss.) Went into Lou’s and watched TV. We laid on the bed. Another boy was in the bed. Was kind of fun, wasn’t afraid, because I was with him. He said I was his girlfriend. Hope he isn’t telling lies. Going out with him next Saturday. He’ll be 19 on Thursday. He’s 2 1//2 years older.
Sharrie with Howard while Ernie cool’s his heals.
Side note: Although there was a lot of making out in High School, there no actual sex until after I graduated. Of course how could there be, with the armor I wore as underwear. Sort of like Spanx today… protected us from date-rape.
