Marilyn's Diary


When my Uncle left us to go move in with Carol Herman I didn't know what to do with myself.  I missed him coming into my room every night and making hot monster love to me. My Aunt Lily was distraught. She moved from lover to lover. Started to hang out with a bad crowd. Dennis Wilson and his friend Charlie. That whole crew from the ranch.

Grandpa got into a fight with his friend Sandy so he stopped coming over for sleepovers. My pervert Cousin Eddie started staying away for days at a time. Peeping in windows and stealing soiled underwear.

I didn't know what to do with myself.

I started hanging out at Sea World. I always liked to be wet. There I met a young man from Wisconsin who was into scuba diving and learning from Lloyd Bridges. I let him explore my depths. So to speak. It was fun and all but not the same.

I still missed my Uncle Herman.

He's wearing a double hose Aqualung regulator as invented by Cousteau. The regulator needed two hoses: one for intake and one for exhale and the bubbles came out the back. Divers complained that exhalation could be difficult depending on underwater orientation and depth. The single hose regulator was developed to get around those problems and also Cousteau's patents which were actually retarding the sport because he wouldn't license to enough producers. Nowadays all you see are single hose regulators.

Troop, did you see "Once Upon A Time In Hollywood"? Great scenes at the ranch.
