A pretty good day at school. Dennis wasn't mad. Both book deals fell through but I picked up another at the same price. Also got a five dollar science book. I only need a few more now but I have to find them by Monday!
Mr. Clay, my Spanish teacher, although obviously a great fella but he speaks Spanish at 360,000 words per minute! Oh, well. Maybe I can get used to it. I hope so. Couldn't understand a word he said!
Evel Knievel's famous quote was that his death would be glorious. I've got an idea on how to make mine so, too. It's too far-fetched to ever come true but if I could convince people to send me on a mission in space! I would head toward Mars but then keep on going, sending back pics and info up until my inevitable death. Impossible. But maybe I can at least write a story about it.
I saw BORN INNOCENT advertised! It'll be on NBC in two weeks. Starring Linda Blair! Oh, it should be marvelous!
NOTES: Don't think I ever did write that Mars story. Too bad. A rogue astronaut.
Mr. Clay really was (and is) a great guy. About ten years back I ran into him at the Supermarket and was shocked to see he looked just the same while I was now a middle-aged fat guy. I later saw him often as a patron when I worked at the Public Library and still later would see him from time to time shopping in local bookstores. Somewhere, a portrait of him is aging because the last time I saw him--maybe 4 years ago now, he was still not.
