All my buddies were in love with Mona but Johnny stole her away. They both were so full of fun. Johnny loved to tell jokes and make crazy faces and embarrass me talking about women. There was one well built girl we both liked before Mona of course. Johnny would always drop his pencil in front of her desk. The clown would pick it up and juggle it and drop it again and down he would go perhaps barking a little the second time around. He was a bad little boy Mona...Lucky you.
