November 17, 1964, Tuesday.
Pearl and I were too tired to go to the Saffron meeting, instead, we worked on the school play. The meeting was sickening anyway. They made the Pledge’s eat raw eggs and kill live Snails. It caused mass hysteria and mental torture my sister Donna told me. I was sad to have missed it. After the meeting, Sandy picked me up at Pearl’s and we went to Fosters. Afterwords we went to pick up my 57 Chevy, but the gas station was closed. The battery went dead on the way to school this morning and it’s being recharged.
Some girls got sick and threw up after eating raw eggs and stepping on live snails. My sister Donna didn’t want to be in Saffrons after that… and Hell Night was yet to come.
Nobody wants to kill a slimy snail with their bare feet or eat a raw egg in one gulp, but the girls had to do it or be disqualified during pledge week.
