At 2.30 in the afternoon I went back to school for a physical examination. I am 4 ft 9 1/2 inches high and weigh 82 1/2 lbs. It began to snow and it kept up all the afternoon maybe all night. 
I bought a hockey stick for 25ยข over at Ciccone's and I burned my name on it. I got out my sled and hitched on the grocery and had a delivery ride for about 2 hours around town
