Oh my gosh, you guys, I was certifiably a big old doofus!
I think tonight I will inundate you all with the thoughts from me as a teenager.

This is from a journal we had to keep in freshman english, October, 1986

If you had to name the most important invention of the last one hundred years, what would it be and why?

(In all my infinite wisdom, this is what I said.)

One of the most important inventions is the telephone. If it weren't for the telephone you would have no communication with some people. Also, it would be difficult to get help in an emergency.
(I can't even believe I am going to admit to writing this next thing!)
Another is curling irons/brushes. If it weren't for them I would look pretty disgusting every day. (oh. my. goodness.)
Television is a good one, too. Some of the best entertainment is on tv.

Good Lord, people!! Who was that person??
I must clarify something here, though. I HATED the teacher in that class with a screaming purple passion. So, I pretty much wrote whatever just to get points for the days journaling.

You may make fun of me now.

(don't forget to read my three wishes post below. It will give you a warm fuzzy feeling.)
