An entry from My Pop Bottle Family
June 25, 1977 Saturday
Today was not a good day at all!
This morning I was out collecting those
stupid pop bottles when you’ll never
guess in a million years who drove by
on his bike….you guessed it…
Andy Meredith! I was so humiliated
I couldn’t keep the tears back and
just started blubbering right there
on the side the road like an idiot! I’m not
sure if he recognized me or not as
I was covered in pickers and weeds.
My mom and dad couldn’t understand
why I was so embarrassed. Then just when
I thought that could be the most embarrassing
thing that could ever happen to me in the whole wide
world I got my period right there on the side
of the highway in front of a zillion motorists!
Ahhhhhh!!! I will NEVER show my face
again as long as I live. That ended the pop bottle hunt for
sure and mom and I ran to the supermarket for
well…you know what. I wonder if Andy
Meredith knew I was hemorrhaging…Oh my
God, Oh my God… I don’t know if I’ll be able to show my
face around this neighborhood ever again! Life
couldn’t get any worse than it already is!
My book is out in stores...Please support a starving writer/artist...and go buy my book!
