Every girl I knew carried Maybelline Black Liquid-Eyeliner in her purse and wanted to look like Jean Shrimpton in 1964.

March 2, 1964, Monday, Told everyone I’m going with Howard. Ugly windy day.

Drove to school. It rained last night. It was so windy my hair blew apart as soon as I got out of the car. Latest news is Cindy W. is pregnant. She goes down with every boy she goes out with. She’s only known the boy for three weeks. After school took Marilyn to get a job at Newberry’s. She didn’t get it. Then went to Fosters. Went home and fell asleep until 6:30. Than Daddy was on the phone with Nana until 7:00. I was so mad. Wrote the letter to Unk Ile, about what my friends think of Maybelline liquid Eyeliner . Sending it tomorrow. Howard called at 8:30. I talked about using Lou’s band for the Saffron Dance. I sure hope we use them. Also he wants me to fix Phil up with someone. Howard get his license back in 3 weeks.
