My mom saved these “autograph books” from middle school that were basically like yearbooks without the pictures. Her friends and classmates would write things in them. Here are some of the hilarious / great / weird ones.
Do your duty
Here comes Nancy
The American Beauty
2. Hope you have a happy summer and more seasons that will be happy.
3. When you get old and out of shape
remember girdles are only $2.98
4. Boston girls are pretty
New York girls are smart
But it takes a Nancy Keller
to break a fellow’s heart (ha-ha-ha)
5. When you get married and live in a tree
I’ll send you a coconut C.O.D.
6. (a variation)
When you get married and live upstairs
Don’t come down and borrow my chairs
and my favorite because it is hilarious:
7. Roses are red
violets are purple
why don’t you
Drop dead at Morton
