Got home and Mom was in Tarboro. Shannon came over. We watched “Friends” and went on a walk to Sol’s but he wasn’t there. Came home and changed. Shannon left. Went to see “Creature from the Black Lagoon” with Eddie and Karen. Then Eddie took us to Zach’s party. Kissed Sean a couple times. Cool. Came home and Mom showed me a cig that was on her bathroom floor. Where the hell?! Got lectured. God, help me.
