August 6, 1993 – Friday – 11:12 p.m.

I got paid yesterday.  Today, I cashed my check and went shopping: shoes, socks, underwear, pants, saline solution, etc.  I came home and got ready for work.

Mike’s sister Ruth works at McDonald’s and maybe it’s just a hunch but I think she likes me.  Or either she is just being very, very, very, very nice.

I was on fry duty tonight and she comes over there and practically does half the job for me.  I don’t need the help, but I don’t want to be rude and tell her I can handle it myself.  She is as sweet as she can be, a real soft-spoken person.  I’m nice to her and I know I can trust her.

Well, while she was helping me with the fries, I noticed she had been there for about five minutes.  So, I said, “What are you doing tonight?”

Now I meant, “What position are you working tonight at McDonald’s?” because I know they didn’t tell her to cover fries.

She said with a smile, “Well, nothing.  I just work until nine and then I’m free after that.”

Then it hit me.  It sounded like I was asking her out.  I said, “No, I mean what are you doing at McDonald’s?”  She looked down and said, “Oh, I’m just stocking up, they haven’t given me a register yet.”

She stayed there about a second longer and then went to the back.  I hope I didn’t hurt her.

We leave at the butt crack of dawn tomorrow.  I better get some sleep.
