I was a messed up nine-year-old.

Since quite a few of you seemed to enjoy my whiny childhood camp letters/love letter to my cat, I thought you might enjoy this item, too.

Below is an entry from my second diary that I ever kept, from roughly age eight - age eleven.  I started the first one when I was six, and it contains such enthralling entries as: "MY NAME IS TLOYLY.  I AM SXI SIX." Pretty juicy.

My entries from this second diary were fairly boring, too: "Dear Diary. Today I went to Rachel's house. I got to level 3 on Super Mario Brothers. Signed, Tolly." They mostly chronicle my wild adventures attending school and after-school care. However....

Flipping through the pages last weekend, I did come across ONE ENTRY that was a little suspect.  I wrote it when I was nine.  It is below.

Pause.  "Yesterday, I mooned a dog."

WTF?

At least I had the good sense to write "YUCK!" in lovely cursive.

I'm pretty intrigued by the previous entry that we can only partially see in the pic above: "...grader! WOW! Well, there'll probably be more news sometime. By Diary."

I must know what elicited that "WOW!"

I'm curious to know what happend next! "And then, when..." When what? When you had to register as a sexual predator with the ASPCA?

Shannon & Gina - Glad you enjoyed. :) (Gina....good to see you!! Congratulations on your beautiful life!)

Breanna - Ok, I can tell you that I was referring here to the fact that a sixth grader liked me. Haha. "WOW" INDEED

Jon - The rest of this entry goes on to tell, not even kidding, about how I found a snake at my grandparent's ranch and my dad came over to chop its head off. Mooning dogs....beheading snakes...a typical day with the Moseleys!

Lyssa - It is SUCH a trip. Please please post yours.

Camille - I aim to please. :) Glad it was good timing for you!

Bwahahahaha. Oh so glad (but still kind of not) mine are in a landfill somewhere. I'm not sure I'd have the guts to post my entries.

You have pretty nice hand writing. I shouldn't post mine. No one can read it. I can't even read some of my hand writing now.

I knew you liked to moon & starting out at such an early age too. but why a dog?
