1972

Sophomore year is almost over. I turned sixteen last week and can't wait to get my license, the first of the GALs, not that I'll be doing much driving. I have to share a car with my father and the Ice Queen (my step-mother). The GALs won't truly be mobile until August, when Allie gets her license. Dr. Clark has already picked out a car for her.

Carl Sachem broke up with me Saturday night, but I'm okay, saw it coming. I was not all that into him anyway, pretty much dated him because he is really good looking, a junior, and drives a Corvette. He said he didn't want to be tied down; the real reason is that I won't put out, at least nothing beyond heavy petting. I lose most of my boyfriends for this reason. Allie is also between beaus; Les has hit the mother-lode, Captain of the football team, a senior. John Faber is gorgeous, but he's a real jerk. Thinks he's God's gift, and acts as if he is doing Les a favor. She's not expected to put up with this much longer, maybe through Farewell Prom.

Allie and I are hanging out in her room. We smoked a joint on the way home from school, so we are chowing down on her mother's famous walnut brownies. Mrs. Clark is awesome; we love her and spend most of our time together here. She's well aware that her husband cheats on a regular basis, yet divorce is not an option for her because she loves her lifestyle. If you read between the lines, however, it's clear she hates his guts. Something about the way she looks at him when she thinks no one is watching and the tone of her voice when she addresses him. I will not be at all surprised if she kills him one day. She expends the vast majority of her energy making Allie happy and creating a beautiful home.
