Dear Diary: Dana here,
So we just saw this new musical film called Grease. Me & Brother like it so much we want to do a play version of it and we want to put it on for the neighborhood. I get to play Danny and my next door Neighbor Patty is playing Sandy. My brother is also writing a play called the Runnaways that I am gonna act in with my other neighborhood friend Wendy. Patty’s older sister Cathy is helping my brother with both plays.
Anyways there is a scene in the film that features dancing. Their all doing something called the Hand Jive. At one point Danny slides across the dance floor on his knees, so guess what ? I tried doing this in our living room on our wooden floors but I got a huge ouchie in my knee.
My Mom took me to the doctor and he pulled out a 12 inch splinter embedded in my knee. No more sliding across the floor for me. That splinter was crazy huge. Here is a picture of me post tweezer surgery.
Well, till another day Diary
