Miss Norma’s Diary – January 19, 1962 – “Then Barry said ‘why won’t you go out with me – cause I’ll try something?'”

Friday

“Today I didn’t go to school I washed my hair. At night I stayed home and watched T.V. Barbara went to school today but her cold is gottin’ worse. At 10:00 pm Barry called me up. He asked me why I didn’t go to the show. Then he asked me to go out with him. I said no and he got mad and he kept asking me why. Then he said – – would you go out with Ralph. I said no. He said why. Then Ralph said in the background ‘cause she’s too good for us.’ I said no it wasn’t that. Then Barry said ‘why won’t you go out with me – cause I’ll try something?; and I said no and he said ‘well, I will.’ I was really nervous. Then Ralph said ‘ain’t my car good enough for you?’ Barry kept sayin’ god dam and Ralph kept talking in the background. I hope I don’t see either of them at the show tomorrow night or any other time.

“Today I went to school Nothin’ much happened. In Science John said to me, ‘Keep your hands out of my pants.’ So, I hit him in the butt. After school Barb and I went down the street. We saw Charlie Drive by. Then we saw Ralph. At night Barb and I went to the show. A.T., Charlie, Barry, Mike, & Steve, Barry’s friends, Big Hick, John, Don S., Don D. Etc. Barry was sitting in the same row as we were and Big Hick was sitting in front of us. A.T. Was sitting behind us. Barry kept waking by us. Once he went by and he said to me, ‘Baby’. Later he asked me if I was going to stay for the next movie. He said, ‘Stay for the next show.’ When the show was over. Barb and I left. Barry came over and said, ‘So you ain’t gonna stay here?’ and I said no. But he kept asking me that. When Barbara was calling, Barry came up and said, ‘are you going home to mama?’ and I said yeah. John kept teasing me tonight. We had a big blast. Barbara is stoked on Big Hick again. But not for long.”
