Fifth Grade Journal Friday-Learning Negotiation Skills

Ahhh, the year was 1991, and I was just beginning to master the art of negotiation, and develop my appreciation for funny boys. I somehow managed to convince the the boy I liked to PAY me money to tell him who I liked...And $5 wasn't enough, yet $10 seemed to be the magic number. I wonder what my pricing strategy was. Did I have a specific toy in mind (a bedazzled slap bracelet or Super Nintendo game perhaps?)? Or maybe this was my attempt at playing hard to get? Either way, as you know Travis and I eventually became "boyfriend and girlfriend"...But things didn't stay blissful in loverville forever. Stay tuned, in the next week or two, I will include a recap of all the women Travis "dated" (I use this term very loosely!) after me....

BTW, if I remember correctly, I ended up giving him that money back!
