Ben Day—January 2, 1985 10:18 a.m.
- On Christmas break, Ben rides to the high school, where he has a job as janitor.
- For some reason, Ben decides to look in a locker in the gym. The wrestling coach catches him and yells at him. The coach says he's not welcome there.
- Ben goes to the janitor's closet and screams in anger.
- Ben calms down and starts mopping the floors, stopping in the fifth-grade classroom to look inside the cubby of a girl named Krissi Cates.
- Krissi has a crush on Ben, who volunteers in an after-school art class. She wrote him a love poem.
- One day, in the stairwell, Krissi even kissed him. Ben ran away to the bathroom to, erm, relieve himself. And we don't mean number one or number two.
