Dear Diary

A while back, I started scanning some some entries from my childhood diaries. I recently found even more embarrassing diary entries from my life as a shy child cursed with intense “Bitchface.” I’m going to attempt to analyze them in order to make my therapist’s job a teeny bit easier. Onto the first gem…

I want JUSTICE!!

Tonya was my red-headed babysitter when I was nine years old. The only other memory I have of Tonya was when she changed her maxi pad in front of me and I saw her big fiery bush. This entry also frightens me because of my horrible spelling of the word “excuse.” I actually was a good speller back then, but I lost the spelling bee since I was too cool to study [lazy].
However, I still stand by my theory that the Speak & Spell made me become the spelling nazi that I am today. Does anyone else have Speak & Spell pride? We should get tattoos.

I *loved* my Speak n’ Spell! That robot voice was a cruel mistress.

Hooray! Let’s start a club. I wonder if they still have them to buy…I could be easily entertained for hours!

I love that you are non committal to your diary, signing it “your friend”. We’ve all been hurt by diaries so it’s to be expected.

SPEAK AND SPELL REPRESENT! I also had the math one.

@Will- hahaha! I have another one that is signed “Hear from you, Marie”. That is sad.

@Slack- Shit..I should get the math one now! That’s my worst subject ever!
