"I'm going back to the factory, they said it would be better if i went back to work but I can't tell them about the operation and I have to go to the hospital for a hour everyday after work. They are going to pay me every month for being smart."
Progress Report Eight March 23
"Dr.Strauss came to my room tonight to see why I did not come in like I was supposed to. I told him I did not want to race Algernon anymore. He had a present for me I though it was a little television but it wasn't and he told me to turn it on when I go to sleep. I asked him when can I go back to Ms.Kinnians class but he said I won't go there anymore, she will come to the hospital and teach me specially.
"I beat Algernon!!!!!" "I did not even know I beat him till Burt told me"
I feel sick inside not sick like not for a doctor but inside my chest it feels empty. Last night Jo and Frank invited me to a party, I told him I did not want anything to drink so he gave me a coke but it tasted funny.
"I figured out a way to line up the machine in the factory, and Mr.Donnegan says it will save him ten thousands dollars a year in labor and increased production. He gave me a $5 bonus."
Charlie asked out Ms.Kinnian to celebrate his bonus.
