How dead are we?

Handwritten page of a diary dated January 7, 1967

then she said she’d make it if we promised that someone cleaned the bowl before we went out.

We said sure sure. It’s THE popcorn. And if she’s gonna let us eat it for breakfast, then it’s worth cleaning the bowl.

It was. UNTIL we ate about 3/4 of the bowl and we could barely stand to look at it any more. Then there was a lot of “you clean it” “no you clean it” “no you” “no you.”

So we decided to turn the TV on and watch The Monkees before we cleaned the bowl. I’ve decided I love Mickey now, which is good timing because Mary had dibs on Mickey but now she is back to Davey again.

Then we wanted to walk to the playground to see if those guys from Roosevelt were there again, so I said let’s just put water in the bowl to soak it and it’ll be easier to clean when we get home.

But those guys from Roosevelt WERE there and we stayed talking to them. A long long time. So long that when we got back, Mom’s car was back. And we knew we were dead if she looked in the kitchen sink. But we were even more dead than that. Here is a list of people who are LESS dead than we are today:

1. That woman who played Mrs. Kravitz on Bewitched and had to be replaced with a new Mrs. Kravitz
2. Marilyn Monroe
3. Guy who played Superman
4. George Washington
5. King Tut
