November 5, 1964, Thursday.
It was scary to come back to school after being absent for 8 day. I was tired, because I didn’t go to bed until past Midnight. Dale called Marilyn last night and told her what I said! She was never so mad at me. She told me to mind my own business. I really didn’t care, but, I told her I was sorry, because I didn’t mean to cause her any trouble with him. By the end of the day we were halfway friends. We have o go to the Pledge party or pay $5.00. I’m not going. I don’t have anyone to ask, but I won’t pay either.
Marilyn and I had been the best friends before she started going steady with Dale Hansmen. After that she wasn’t as available to hang out, because Dale had her on a short chain, so to speak. He always came first over Saffrons, school or even her best friends.
I was never like that. My girlfriends and Saffrons always trumped any guy I was dating. Some girls are girlfriend types and some are boyfriend types. I always had a ton of girlfriends…guys would come and go… but my loyalty to my friends came first. Today, I still have my original best friends from Jr High and High School and see them often.
