No, not Leigh but Mitchell with a pair of the blackest eyes you ever saw! 

Tues. Jan. 14th

Dear Diary, 

The funniest thing I’ve heard in months! Guess what! Tonight mother went to a stork shower for Mrs. Whitney. Dad was out somewhere. A knock came on the door and Uncle Dud opened it. Guess who! No, not Leigh but Mitchell with a pair of the blackest eyes you ever saw! 

I nearly yelled then. He wanted me to call Marie because she was at a party somewhere and he wanted to know where. I did and her father answered. He said she was at school. He thanked me and said he’d do something for me sometime. I’ll remember it. 

But I never worked so hard to keep from laughing in my life. It’s too good to keep. I think Lorraine is behind it. I’m sure I heard her voice out in the car. Mitch didn’t know whether to ask me or not. He positively squirmed, then told me. I asked if he wanted to talk to her but he didn’t. 

It’s so funny. WAIT TILL I SEE MARIE! ! ! ! !

Burstingly, 

MC

P.S. I’m glad Mom and Dad weren’t home! This doesn’t half express the look on his face.
