Don’s first visit to a barber arrived at age 4, Don was very nervous when he sat in a "booster" seat and was about to receive a haircut via clippers.

Jeff the barber talked to Don and assured him he was ok and started talking to him. Don’s mother instructed Jeff to trim Don’s hair. so Jeff used a "clipper over comb" technique. when Jeff finished Jeff gave Don a "sucker" and Don handed it to his Mother. at this age, Don didn’t have a clue the sucker was for good behavior.

Early April Don’s mother brought him to the shop and Don had his first flat top at 4 and a half. Don liked the Haircut and continued to have this kind of haircut each March for 5 months. at age 8 Don had his first headshave mid march prior to spring vacation. Don liked it, a few of his friends at school who were im-mature poked fun at his "bald" head for a few days.

Don walked Alison back to her house and then he walked back to his house.

a month later Don and his mother went to the freshman High to enroll don for the school year and they walked around part of the school and it was nicely constructed.

Don went to the barbershop for his 6 week cut and and his hair needed it. he had it trimmed.

Don wasn’t excited about school starting but he was thinking about the challenges he’ll have. he thought he would face those challenges and do his best.

the morning of August 20th arrived and Don’s alarm sounded. his clock said 5:30 "i didn’t set it this early" he thought.

he set it for 6:00 and went to sleep.

the alarm sounded at 6am and Don Sat up and belched. he went to the bathroom to clean his teeth and applied his deodorant and cologne.

he went to his closet and picked out his clothes for the first day. "think i’ll wear a shirt and tie" he thought.

he slipped in to his dress pants and his dress shoes. they werent the nice ones he had. they were the casual ones.

he went downstairs to the kitchen a grabbed a bowl from the cupboard and had a little cereal.

His mom entered the kitchen in her night gown "you’re wearing a tie?" she inquired.

"yep" Don replied. "it’s nice with your white shirt" she said.

"I hope your first day goes smoothly" she said.

"me too" Don said.

Don departed from the house at 6:45 to meet the bus at prior to 7am Don walked the quarter of a mile to the 4 way stop where there was a shelter for the students to wait for the bus. Don arrived at 6:53 there wasn’t anyone there, he could see a few kids walking to other houses. at 6:55 Don’s friend Travis arrived. Travis didn’t have any long hair like he did awhile back. "hey, travis where’s the long hair?" Don Inquired. "My mother asked me to cut it for my freshman year, so why argue with her?" Travis replied. "you look nice with short hair." Don said. "Thank you, my father likes it too" Travis said. "you ready to be a freshman?" Don asked. "I think so" Travis replied. "you’ll do fine" Don said. three boys and 1 girl arrived at 6:58am and it was a cool morning so some of the students were wearing jackets.

the bus arrived at 7:05 and it was a 15 minute ride to the school and Don and travis entered the school and they went to their lockers to wait for their friends and then they were instructed to go to the gymnasium.

the gymnasium was big…Don and Travis seated themselfs and observed other people entering the gym.

the gymnasium was loud for a little while and when all the students were there, the principal spoke.

the principal spoke about the handbook and the changes and then the other assistant principals spoke.

some of the teachers spoke and one teacher had a joke which was a good one and had the crowd laughing.

the convocation concluded at 8:40 and the students all went to their lockers.

some freshman stopped to talk to Don and asked Don to step inside his locker and don declined and pushed don inside his locker and locked him in it. "gee, how am i supposed to free myself?" don thought. then Don seen a maintenance guy walk past the locker and don banged on the locker.

"what are you doing in there?" the guy asked. "some guy pushed me in here" Don replied. "okay, let me open the locker" the guy said.

the guy opened the locker and said "follow me…i’ll walk you to your first class"

Don was a minute late and the students were there and the teacher wasn’t for english class. the teacher was a short guy a little taller than Don and said his name was "Mr. Tilbuckle" he was wearing a suit and tie and he told them about himself and asked if they had any questions. one question one of the students asked made the teacher giggle. he gave a good answer. he asked if they had any other questions. there were a few other questions and he answered them.

of all things to occur the first day, don’s locker didn’t want to open after first period and had to have a maintenance guy open it.

don went to lunch at 12pm and managed to find a table with his friends sitting there.

alison was sitting 20 feet from their table.

Don hoped she’d come to their table but she didn’t.

when lunch was concluded she tracked down Don spoke to him briefly.

Don looked at his schedule he had two classes remaining. it was biology class. he walked to the room and there wasn’t anyone there yet. he sat down and a minute had passed and a guy walks in. "i assume, he is the teacher" Don thought.

he looked at Don and Grinned.

a few other students had arrived and were sitting down. one of them was a girl, very attractive.

the bell rang and the teacher said his name was "Mr. Hindle" and he wore a suit. he was an older guy perhaps late 40’s. he asked all students to stand and introduce themselfs. Don hadn’t didn’t this previously but did as he was asked. he then handed out papers and they were his class rules. they were common ones such as "respect for others" and "hand in assignments by their due dates" he asked if they had any questions and there were a few and he answered them.

he then gave them all a questionaire, it was a personal questionare.and asked them to complete it and they took out their pens and started writing.

they handed them in and the teacher reviewed them and asked 1 male student to come to his desk. a minute passed and he asked another one to come to his desk. "I hope he doesn’t ask me" Don thought. Mr. Hindle stood up and stood in front of the class and talked about the assignments they’d be doing. he didn’t seem to be very friendly. he asked if there were any questions, there weren’t. He didn’t seem to be a friendly guy. don hoped this part would pass. he asked them to relax for the couple of minutes remaining. the bell rang and don walked to his 7th period class. it was "english" don walked to the classroom and the teacher was there at the doorway. she smiled at him. she had short hair about mid ear length and she was an inch taller than Don.

the bell rang and the teacher said "My Name is Mrs. Wendell…need to see who’s all here"

she read through the names and they were all there.

she then talked about herself and asked if anyone had any questions. there were none. she distributed her classroom rules. she read them all and discussed each one. they were common sense rules like Mr. Hindle’s.

she discussed her expectations and talked about the type of assignments they’d be doing. she asked if there were any questions there were none.

she handed out their books and recorded their numbers as she handed them to each student.

Don ordered a combo which includes a steak. they sat there and discussed their week. and then Don asked. "I have a question for you" "what?" alison asked. "would you consider sharing an apartment together?" alisons eyes got big as if she were suprised. "How about a house instead?" she said. "we can share a house" Don replied. "when should we look for one?" she asked. "well, how about we buy a local paper and see if there’s anything available" Don replied. "okay, what budget should we have for monthly rent?" Alison said. "I’d say $500" "Okay" Don said.
