Frank Sinatra

Mar 25, 2020

I couldn’t skip school because my Mama would find out. How? I don’t know. But I couldn’t even skip school. When you’re followed all the time, you get rebellious. I skipped school to go see Frank Sinatra.

Frank Sinatra had come to the Metropolitan and a whole bunch of photographers were there with the newspaper. And I was telling my friends, “Don’t go near the newspapers.” I skipped school. So naturally, she went near the newspapers, and we were all in the paper the next day. My mother found out and so did a whole bunch of nuns from my high school that I have never forgotten.

The newspaper clipping of the Boston Globe of my friends and I. I’m in the center in the black coat!
