From 1983, third grade:
I caught onto the idea of the locked diary right away- venting about people who Done You Wrong.
Today I found out that Adline (my babysitter) is mean. She said "jealous kids" and I practically whispered "we are not selfish" and she thought that Heather had said it and she said "what did you say to me?" and Heather said "nothing". And Adline said "I thought I heard someone" and Heather said it was me. Adline thought that Heather or whoever it was had said "selfish kids, huh?" So, seeing the look coming to her face, I told her what I had said. And guess what the idiot said? "I do not like back talk, and you've been around here long enough to know that". I wish I could have shouted "I have not!" and killed her about a million times!!!
