Did you ever prick a big beautiful soap bubble and watch it burst? Or simply chase in on it until there wasn’t any.

Dear Diary, 

Did you ever prick a big beautiful soap bubble and watch it burst? Or simply chase in on it until there wasn’t any. Apparently Leigh prefers the first & Wayne the last method of ending things. Only I don’t think Wayne and Lucile have ended. Leigh was at church tonight and wouldn’t even speak to me. That’s just too bad. I’ve cried every [sic] since (laugh laugh). I mean (boo-hoo).

Helen was mad because he didn’t sit with me. She said to him that she was mad. She didn’t say why. When he started down the street he asked who knew why. She said that I did and he said, “Then I’ll find out.” That’s what he thinks. 

We finished the book of Math. in Bible Study. We’re going to start Daniel next. 

Edith is sick today. I stayed over there between times.

Me.
