January 19, 2013 (this day)

I’ve been reading his girlfriend’s journal from 3rd through 6th grade.  She seems to me to be very smart, really delightful.  She records what she had for breakfast (Farina, Rice Crispies, toast).  She records what she wants to be when she grows up (a doctor, a palaeontologist). She records what she got for her 11th birthday, among other things a buzzer/beeper with green and red lights.  She wrote:  I LOVE IT!  She wrote:  I am so lucky!   She wrote that her father had a car accident while driving drunk, that he had his license suspended for 18 months, that she was scared.

And so it goes.
