It was a CHOP to be seen at the drive-in without a date

August 20, 1964. Thursday. Went to the drive-in with Sandy and the kids.

Stayed home all day and did my hair. Tonight Sandy Block and I took Billee and Preston to the drive-in and saw Bikini Beach and You People. They weren’t great, but the worst part was when Pam and Jerry Booth walked by. Sandy and wanted to die. Here we were all cramped up with two little kids in the drive-in. I told them we were babysitting. They must have been talking about us, because they came back and asked me how long I’d been going with Howard. I said three months, but I really had been going with him on and off for two years. Richard Cavaliere came to spy on Sandy and they got in a big fight. Sandy was sad about it.

Chop~To cut down verbally. Example: “Man, you’re so ugly, you gotta slip up on a glass to get a drink of water.” (Now that was a “chop”.) NOTE: This translated to “Burn” in the Seventies and onward….. Luckily it was a Thursday night, not Friday or Saturday, so actually babysitting my brother and sister wasn’t totally a chop.  We knew Jerry Booth would tell Howard and all the guys at Toes, Sandy and I were at the drive-in without dates and realize we were available again.
