Rereading My Childhood – A Year With the BSC #21: What Backspace?

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

It’s a short one this week, and I’m thankful for that, so let’s just jump right in.087.JPG

Abby must be vying to take over Vice-President if Claudia neglects her duties. What shameless sucking up, Abby! And just volunteering Claudia for the job? If she says no, she looks like a dick, and if she takes on this responsibility, then she won’t have time for her other responsibilities. Like, um, having a telephone. Look, Vice-President is a really more of an honorary title than an actual position.


Okay, VP, there’s a backspace key. Why didn’t you just use the backspace? Also, how do you spell “animal” correctly the first time and not the subsequent times? I just don’t know about you, Claude. I’m worried. We’re all worried.
