Felt sick. Got book report done!! Wore my hair in braids for Hillbilly Day. After school went to Pearl’s and went to sleep. Her parents came home while we were watching TV. I fixed Pearl’s hair in a French Roll. My hair was so ugly, but Pearl looked classy. At 11:00 we went to Tiny Nailor’s and everyone was there. I wanted to leave, because I looked so bad, but instead talked to some boys, then drove to the Witch Stand where we met some boys who led us to a party. We didn’t know anyone, but, there were a few boys who went to Westchester and knew Dave and Jack…Just went home.
You lined up in the parking lane coming up the hill on Slauson, heading for Overhill. The “drive in” parking in the Stand was a little different from the A&W or your typical “Delores’s or Mels Diner” type drive in. You pulled up into a driveway and stopped and waited for a parking spot to open up. In the Wich Stand, you pulled in the back parking spot and when someone in front of you left, then you pulled forward. The guys and gals would jockey for the right position to enable them to pull up next to the opposite sex and start some casual conversationguy or gal they wanted to talk to. The spots were three deep and they also had parking by the building
