Last Post from the Middle School Records Series
Well, here's a note from G. (grammar, punctuation, and spelling from the original)
Dear [Jackmormon],Now, I remember this episode, or somewhat. My diaries from the period, back at my parents' house, have a number of angry entries about it, which I reread with great embarrassment about eight years ago.
I like you a lot I should have gone with you the first time instead of going with at slut B.. I don't blame you for hating me I was a fool. I liked dancing with you at the dance. What I'm trying to say is will you go with me.
P.S. Write back My locker number is [xxxx]
See, while I was at the time unimpressed that G. had called B. a slut, I was also mad that G. had gone with B. because I thought she was kind of a slut. She french-kissed him! In front of everyone! And she was wearing another boy's Starter jacket at the same time!
So, no, I didn't go with him. What I can't remember is whether I had the courage to tell him so myself.
