Well now HERE'S a surprising thing I found in my diary when I was reading it last night

I'm referring to the diary I kept when I was 12.  Apparently my parents were on the road, which prompted this outburst:  "I wish Mom was here.  I need to talk to her.  All his sex business is getting me down."

Okay, I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT I WAS REFERRING TO when I wrote that.  Trust me.  I was NOT precocious on this front.  I think I was still mostly riding my bike around the neighborhood, pretending it was horse.  Here's the advice my adult English teacher self would give to my (apparently) distraught 12 year-old self:  "This is too vague and also 'awk.'  Details, Sweetheart.  Details."

What the what?! This is officially the most hilarious journal entry I've ever seen!

Your twelve-year-old self is as funny as your present self.

Perhaps you left out a rather important 't'? Perhaps not. :)
Adolescence was all 'awk' wasn't it?

HA! Thanks, Radagast.

if you look up "adolescence" in the dictionary, it says "awk," I'm pretty sure.
