Narrowing the new crop of Saffron hopefuls down the the cutest girls in school

August 11, 1964, Tuesday. Called Gary’s house and bugged the boys.

Sandy and I bought stuff to make the Saffron new member invitations. We went to Jan’s house and I ate over, than had the meeting there. We discussed new members, who we liked and didn’t like. After that we went to Fosters, but I hate going there so much!..There’s nothing to do and I don’t like any of the boys. They think they’re so bitchen and they’re not!  We drove down to Toes and all the cool guys were there, but we couldn’t stop, so we came home and decided to make strange telephone calls to guys. Dianne called Gary’s and asked for a girl. She called back four times, each time talking to a different boy. They liked her sexy voice and never suspected that Sandy and were behind it.

After bashing all the potential Saffron hopefuls, narrowing the list down to the cutest girls in school…we made prank calls to the cutest guys at Westchester High School….

We didn’t have speaker phones in 1964, so had to take turns listening in on the phone.

Gary must have wondered why the same girl called back four times, asking to talk to a different guy each time.  He didn’t seem to have a clue that Dianne was relaying  information back to Sandy and me and we were loving it.
