He was acting like a bit of a knob – 18th October 1997

Saturday 18th It was so good today. I really enjoyed it. It helped that Man U drew 2-2 against Derby County after being 2-0 down.

October 1997 - MUFC rule

Mum took me to Emma’s then her mum took us and Lizzie to Hayley’s house. We went in and had to wait a few minutes for Georgia but when she arrived we went round the corner to the bus stop. The bus came and nobody knew what to say so we were arguing about who was going on first. Hayley gave in eventually.

It didn’t take long to get to LA Bowl. We got there at about 2:20pm and only Davis was there. The 6 of us decided to go on the dodgems. I went in with Hayley coz they were £1 each so we split it. She drove but it was still good. You only got about 5 minutes though so we just hung round the pool tables and video games.

About 20 minutes later, Hayley and I went to the entrance to the phone and she rang Dougie twice to see if they were on their way. Nobody answered so we went and stood with the others.

Not long after, Dougie, Freddie and Ralph walked in. They didn’t see us so we went over and said hi. We went on the dodgems again 1st and Hayley went with Dougie so I went with Georgia and drove. It’s really hard to control them at first and I kept going backwards but I got used to it after a while. Dougie kept making comments to Hayley about women drivers and got a slap from her!

We all messed about with the racing and ski games then went on the bowling alleys. Sam Allsop and Brian Short (a pair of complete wankers) decided they would join us, even though we didn’t want them to. We had 2 lanes and boys v. girls. There were 6 of them and 5 of us but we still won in the end!

It was quite good that part coz we were all sort of stood in a group so we could talk. Hayley and I kept running off to check the footy results on the TV. (Liverpool lost to Everton 2-0. Ha ha, never mind, Hayley!) The rest of the time I was stood by the  bowling controls with Dougie and Freddie mostly and I discovered the button to make the clearing thing come down early so I pressed it whenever the lads were going to knock any down but Dougie did it back so it didn’t make much difference on the scores overall.

October 1997 - Bowling

After bowling we went back on the dodgems once, I think. I went on with Georgia again and let her drive. I think after that Dougie asked me if I was coming to get a drink. I said yes and everyone else came too. I didn’t actually get one though.

There was this group of little lads skitting Hayley about her LFC shirt and saying how I had the right idea with my MUFC one. [Spellcheck doesn’t like the word ‘skitting’ so I’m assuming it’s not commonly used. It meant ribbing/making fun of/taking the piss out of.] One lad ended up spitting at Hayley through a straw but it missed. Ralph then went and stuffed an ice cube down his back which set Freddie off. He did it to everyone except me. I didn’t say, “Don’t you dare!” but then so did everyone else.

We went on the dodgems again and I went in on my own. Freddie had it in for me! I got him back though.

We all went to the bus stops across the road from each other to get home. They kept waving to us until their bus went. It was quite a good day really.

I’ve gone off Dougie a bit but not completely. [WHAT?! How can this be?!] I still like him but he was acting like a bit of a knob today. I actually quite like Freddie too. I don’t know why though. [Because he was a boy.]
