Man could he kiss and I don't mean maybe!

In addition to my current reading of anonymous teenage girl diaries from the 1970s-90s, I am utterly fascinated with Julia Heller's Diary - or Boy Friends Book - from 1932.

In it, she catalogues the boys she dates. Each entry includes his nicknames, eye and hair colour, height, the sports he plays, and whether he rides a bicycle or drives a car. The stories tell us that William is real cute lookin but can't dance. We learn that Ralph is a good kisser *and* has an adorable mother. And I giggle when I read that LeRoy kisses like a sailor and that Johnnie is a big devil!
