Two birds have flown my way. Two birds whom I have yet to write about in my journal.
Yesterday was Veteran’s Day. And if you are a Veteran, thank you.
We had an assembly at school for the special day. When we have an assembly, we always go to home room and then to the auditorium. In my home room class there is a girl. That is the only class I have her in and we only have home room every now and then.
Anyway, I first saw this girl on August 21, 1993. She was at the senior T-shirt making party. Her name is Rebecca and she is the foreign exchange student this year. She is from Sweden. Back in August, when I met her, the extent of our conversation was just exchanging names. I wanted to talk to her some more, but I was sort of shy. The day continued and she left my mind because I went to Ryan’s house later, and, well, you know…I suppose you could just go back and read the journal entry for that day.
We’ve only had about three assemblies so far this year and that plus one time in the hall are the only times I’ve talked with her. We always sit next to each other during assembly and I’ve gotten to know her a little bit. I guess all I’m trying to say is that she is absolutely wonderful and she has fully captured my attention.
Tonight at work there was a new girl there. Tonight was her first night. I helped her some, but after I got off I sat down and waited for Henry to pick me up and it was her break time. She sat with me and we had a nice conversation. She is pretty, but not gorgeous, but I bet she can be if she adds a little makeup to her beautiful eyes. Her name is Janice. She was nice to me and really polite. I like that.
I was right. Another one always comes along.
This time next week I will be coming back from the best night of my life.
Les Miserables is in seven days.
