A Testament to how much I LOVE Father of the Bride

December 9,1995
Hey Beth!

Guess what? My brother has this cool girlfriend, Tess. She's really nice. It's like a dream come true. She's like nice to me and comes here and talks to me, has dinner with the family. Stuff that is always in books!! I hung around all night with my brother and Tess and made chocolate chip cookies and all of us talked and it was SO FUN.

Oh my god, the scariest thing that has EVER happened, happened to me today. Diana, my dad, her dad, and I were going to lunch and a movie. So we were driving on this street. We got into a little rut in the road and when we tried to get out of it the car did a 360 degree turn! The whole world was spinning! Then we crashed into this metal rail that, if it broke, it would have been a VERY steep drop. Diana and I started crying and holding hands. Her dad felt so bad. His bumper fell off! It was disappointing though, because I REALLY wanted to see Father of the Bride Two. Oh well.

I can't WAIT until Christmas. My top choices are: a chameleon, a unicycle, and a stereo. I'm SURE I'll get one of them! YES!

See ya!

Yeah you read that right. The car crash I got into with my best friend and our dads was "disappointing" because it made me miss Father of the Bride TWO.

I also wonder what books I am reading that involve your older brother's girlfriend hanging out and making cookies. I guess I had not started reading my angsty books yet. Also, I love that I compare it to a book and not a movie. 'Cause I am so that girl.

And of course, the Christmas list. I never, ever, managed to have a normal-person Christmas list. I mean, a chameleon and a unicycle???

Um, I got the unicycle, and taught myself to ride it in our basement.

Let's just call it "quirky".


  1. I think it's awesome that your dads were taking you to Father of the Bride 2. My dad couldn't even watch Father of the Bride 1 without sniffling and getting all mooney-eyed... and that was when I was about 12.

    Did you ever read the Alice books by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor? The older brother in those books has a cool girlfriend, Marilyn, who sometimes hangs out with Alice. I'm sure there's cookie-baking involved.

  2. Right? It's the sweetest father-daughter date EVER.

    I have to go look up these Alice books. They're not ringing a bell, but maybe they're the culprit of this magical idea of brothers' girlfriends that I read about...
