February 27, 1964, Thursday, Hope I don’t get Mono from Howard. He finally called. Happy Day.
Drove to school. The day was so long I almost fell asleep in class. Talked about the snow trip. It seems Edna can’t go causes she got a job at J J Newberry, and works Sunday. Marilyn can’t go cause her Mom doesn’t want her to wear herself out. And, we don’t want Linda to come anyway. Came home. Al Walker called for Howard. He’s been sick for three weeks, with “MONO.” But, I told him to tell Howard I would go out with him anyway. Howard called twice. He doesn’t want me to go to the snow. He said he would take me when he gets his license back. Al called again, we’re doubling with him and Pat. Granddaddy said I can’t drive to the snow, it’s too dangerous. I don’t care now. I can go to the beach with Howard. Bonnie and Angie are mad sorta. Funny how things work out.
J J Newberry Co in Hollywood, built in 1928.
I guess I was willing to get Mononucleosis (Mono,) just to go out with Howard. I wonder if I actually will be crazy enough to do it. We’ll see, stay tuned.
