Dear Dumb Diary #12: Me! (Just Like You, Only Better)

Series: Dear Dumb Diary (Book #12)
by Jim Benton Illustrated by Jim Benton

Dear Dumb Diary,

I went five whole days without seeing or hearing from Angeline. I was beginning to get used to it. It's true that I have learned to overlook many of Angeline's flaws, like her flawlessness, but she can still be difficult to be around. Like when she's lit perfectly, for example.

To my extreme credit, I have learned to pretend to ignore Angeline's failure to not be perfect.
