days is my goal. Don’t know if I’ll make it before mom begins to notice, but even she says I should try to follow my dreams.
“Gonna drop by Dave’s house after school. He found a Playboy in a Dumpster, so we thought we’d look at that for a while. If there’s time afterward, we might study for tomorrow’s math exam.
“I am going to wrap this up for tonight. Dad is yelling at me from upstairs to turn off my light and go to sleep. So that’s it for now.”
My granddaughter turns 1 year old next month. She’ll start speaking her first words any day now, and as soon as does, she and I will sit down to start work on her memoir. It’d be nice to get it in the stores by Christmas.
