Excerpt from the diary. May 26. “Today is written from what today would consider tommaro. (I didn’t take my diary with me to prom. At the beginning of the day I was worried that everything wasn’t going right or everything wouldn’t go right. I was irritated because Moe and Edward just left me in the car for three minutes. My hair appointment was over way before they got back. I did my nails & screwed up. I used remover w/ animal in it. I had gotten it long before without knowledge that it had anything in it. I didn’t feel to great about this. Once Walter came and got me I was in a good mood. We both looked great. The only prob was that I didn’t have the correct shade of lipstick & my clevage was great. Martha and Mark looked wonderful they matched it was nice. After the picture taking we went to the kids’ table and I ordered coq au vin without the chicken. Mark complimented me on my courage. We went back to Martha’s and then to prom. It was wonderful. It looked beautiful. They handed us (Martha and me) a rose at the entrance. The band sucked but they played a song from their new album and had chocolate fondue and so on. I danced 2 times slow with Walter. We cruised then went to the bowling alley and then the hotel. There was a lot of complaint on how Monica was a bitch who looked like a cucumber. Walter and I made soup twice I had crackers too and it was intense. I gave him a blow to the head. The soup was fun were finally getting the hang of it and understanding what works. This morning we did it again. We fed off of a gigantic ice cream cake that was a puddle in the morning (William, Wyatt, Wendell, et al went to the diner for breakfast we were all starved all in all prom was fantastic! I spent today recovering.”

Excerpt from the diary. May 25. “I’m tired and glad it’s friday. The actual school day was ok. In health we had this really interesting speaker. He is an alcoholic & he talked about his life & the disfunctional family and AA. I missed the you can take a cross town bus if it’s raining or it’s cold! I just didn’t hurry and it left. I spent 40 minutes trying to get a ride home. William stayed & talked with me its weird I don’t really know what to say to him. Grover rescued me. I’m not angry with him anymore. I had a long talk w/him after I wrote my diary last night at about 9:30 AM. He realized I was upset & why everything is OK now. We had soup this afternoon. It was great! After about 2 weeks it should be & we are experimenting.”
