Dear Diary,

Tonight after play practice, Sheila, Janice, and I drove to Rudy’s Drive-In for burgers and root beers. We’d planned on going inside, but as soon as we drove up, I recognized Jimmy’s car. He was with Roberta!!!

I talked the girls into settling for curb service so that I could scrunch down in the back seat and watch Jimmy’s car. He and Roberta were totally absorbed in each other – laughing, having a great time. When our burgers came, I couldn’t swallow a single bite.

  1. It was easy to tell because it’s a true story. I remember the experience vividly to this day. (Of course, names were changed to protect the innocent — and not so innocent as well.) And I am happy to say that several years later, I had reason to be glad that “Roberta” ended up with “Jimmy” instead of me.
    Thanks for reading.

      1. Bless you. You’re so sweet. In his defense I should say that we were not “technically” a couple. But all the signs were there, and the “pre-couple” steps had been taken, so I expected us to move into that next level any time. Then, all of a sudden, the rug was pulled out from under me. Aaaahhhh, young love. Where would the world be without it???

Hey, don't you dare go away without leaving me a note!
