Dear Diary,

On Club Matinee today Micheal Roy was trying to tell jokes, but nobody would laugh at him. Nancy Martin said, “I don’t think you’re going about it the right way. Why don’t you try the Bob Hope technique?” Mike said, “You mean the delayed-action snicker? You tell a joke, say, ‘And now—,’ and then stop and giggle?” He told a joke that way, but the strange part of it was that still nobody laughed. It seems that the “delayed-action snicker” doesn’t work with just anyone.

I had my last dancing lesson tonight. At least it’s my last unless I can dig up four dollars by Friday.
