Dear Diary,

I’m on Christmas vacation. It’s boring. I miss Tom. There is so much I would like to tell him. Everybody lies. Ron says Tom and Werner like me. Tom says Ron likes me. I wish they would admit. I’ll ask them Monday. Things are pretty good. I just made a list of things to remember. Gina and Hope are pigs. I have a notebook that is like a diary. I’m Tom’s third girlfriend. He wishes he could have 3 girlfriends.

Dear Diary,

Today Tom says at the party tomorrow he wants to dance with me. He also hit me on the butt. He said all this gross stuff about frenching me. He was trying to make me smile. He will probably have a bruise tomorrow. I wish I didn’t kick him. He also sat by me in lunch. I think he likes me. Oh, we’re having a Christmas party tomorrow.

Dear Diary,

Tom says he likes me as a girlfriend. I asked him if he still likes Teresa. He said that she never likes him back. He said that I was pretty nice and full of action. And some other things. He asked me if I liked him. I said maybe. I don’t know. I have to think about it. Then no, but maybe I will change my mind.

Dear Diary,

Tom let me use his jacket and take it home. I wish I could keep it. I love Tom. I wish I could get closer to but I’m lucky I’ve got this close. We’re twins. He is the first boy I ever liked and liked me back. He may not be handsome or smart but he cares and that’s what counts. I like it when people think we are going around. I wish we were. Tomorrow I’m going to ask him if he likes me as a girlfriend.
