Rereading My Childhood – A Year with the BSC #2: Stay Out of It, Dawn

A Year With the BSC is an informal series wherein I explore the 1990’s CD-ROM video game The Baby-sitters Club Friendship Kit. The game is more of a personal organizer; it features with a calendar, an address book, a stationary kit, a flyer maker, and a personality profile. I’m focusing on the more interesting aspect of the game: the personalized letters and the journal entries. The full list of entries can be found at

One of the things that the game asked me was the name of my favorite candy. If I had known they were going to ridicule me via letter, then I wouldn’t have told them.


Hey, hey, Dawn? No one wants to eat that. Why would I want to eat something like that? Does that sound good to anyone on the planet?

Also, Claudia babysat for a pair of children, and for a second, I thought they couldn’t spell their own children’s names.


For the record, those names are pronounced “Shawn” and “Corey.” Unless Claudia spelled their names correctly and their parents are the ones who can’t spell.
