Nothing at all has been
happening around here which is why I haven't been writing.
At work, Ron has gotten mad
at one of the girls because she tends to goof off when things are
busy. He's giving her the silent treatment and she can't figure out
why. Now she keeps coming to me to find out what's the matter.
Right now I just act stupid but I can't keep that up for long. I think
she is going to start asking questions of everyone else about Ron.
Right now I'm the only one who knows why Ron is mad and I'm not sure what to
It rained today for the first
time this summer. It was my day off and I drove to the vet hospital to
offer Ron a ride home. He had already left.

Tomorrow I'm working as much
as possible because I really want to bring in the money. I've been
having trouble convincing everyone I should get a sports car.
I've been reading lately how
the newest phase is smoking bananas. It seems pretty simple so I have
some banana shavings in the oven cooking. When they're dried out I'll
put them in a pipe and give it a try. I'm sure it's just a joke but
what the heck. Can't be worse than some of the pipe tobacco I smoke.
Ron's been telling me how he
likes a girl at school. Of course she's a cheer leader and "high
society" so he knows it's impossible. It's kind of funny how he goes
out of his way at 5:30 in the morning to ride his bike past her house.
We're always joking about it at work.
Speaking of girls, I've had
no luck with the girl down the street. The closest I've come to her is
changing a tire while she was pulling weeds in her front lawn. I
know she noticed me (I made sure of that) but she gave no sign of interest.
I guess she was so thrilled with knowing such a great looking boy lived
close by that she just couldn't bring herself to run over and start a
conversation. Or maybe she smelled the bananas cooking in the oven. (Ha Ha)
