Since I am sort of doing some spring cleaning around here (haven’t seen the mouse today), I’ve been going through boxes of keepsakes. (Side note here…what good are keepsakes if you can’t display them? They just take up space collecting dust in a box somewhere. I don’t want to get rid of them, but I can’t think of any creative ways to display them. Ideas?) Back to my story here, I found a note that I had kept from the 7th grade. You know, one of those little notes that is folded up all special and someone hands to you while you’re walking to your next class? It was one of those, except this wasn’t from somebody I’d call a friend. I can’t exactly figure out why I kept it, except for the fact that it was extremely amusing to read again today, so I thought I’d share. Grammar, punctuation and spelling intact.
When did we tell you that you are trying to get all the guys. Whoever told you that is lying. If you call us a b@%$ then I guess it takes one to know one. Sorry but what you say comes back to you. We just think you guys are major copycats. You do everything the same as (Insert a certain girls name here) Melissa’s OK but if she turns against us just cause you are then she’s not a good friend either. Buy the way, everybody knows you and Melissa like DON!
Well, gotta go!
(Insert another certain girls name here)
W.B.A.S.A.P. and tell me if you like Don cause we know you do!
This note was from some girls Melissa (who is a great friend, my best friend still!) and I sort of hung out with in middle school. The funny thing about it is that in 7th grade, I had a sort of personal identity crisis, and purposely dressed and acted differently than everybody else (and hence, got made fun of quite a bit.) So, the accusation that I was copying somebody is very funny, because there is no way these girls would want to be accused of looking or acting like me. The rest, I think is self-explanatory. Oh, and I have no memory of ever calling these girls a you-know-what. 😉 Hee hee.
