August 26, 1964, Wednesday. Played a trick on Howard. Dance at Westchester Jewish Center, Esquires played.
Tonight was the Dance. Went with Pearl Peskin, Marilyn Collier, Jacky Colgan, my sister Donna and her friend Teri Thompson. We got a lot of attention I guess because most of the girls there were ugly. Pearl and I were bored, so we wen to Hamburger Handout Jr. Two cute boys were working. We gave them a bunch of trouble. Pearl asked for a hot fudge donut and ice for a Coke. Then, we went back to the dance and Fred Ockrim and Mike Janoff were there. Donna and Teri were in a dance contest and Teri won. Then, Howard walked it with a girl and asked someone if I was there. I didn’t see him thank god, that’s what he wants. I was bugged all night about it. When we left we drove by Denny’s and he was there. I walked in with Scott and Pearl walked in with Bruce. He saw me and I saw him.

My mother could have been a professional dancer at MGM when she was 17, but missed her opportunity when she was in an accident the night before her audition and broke her thigh bone. But that natural talent and desire to dance was instilled into me and my two sisters and brother. We were all great dancers. Howard and I met at a dance at the Westcheste Jewish Center and thought I was the best dancer there.
