The story begins with Greg Heffley talking about times before he was born, how he could hear everything his parents were talking about. Greg didn’t want to come out sohe is trying his best to go back to the old times by taking hot baths and blind folding himself with a wet towel.

Greg then talks about how someone is pulling down everyone’s pants and how this kid is called the “Mad-Pantser,” and how his Uncle moved in to Greg’s house because he was ripped off and needed some time to get back on his feet.

Greg tries to get Rowley to vote and he wins because he is the only person voting for that position. Greg then hears from Rowley that there is an upcoming dance and they both want to be each other’s wingman. Eventually they find a girl but promised to go as friends, although Greg thought he’d get to her and be more than friends. On the day of the dance Greg thinks that Rowley has the chicken pox on the night of the dance, but it just turns out to be a few pimples. So Greg hides Rowley’s pimples and go out to dinner. When they are done they go to the dance where a couple of seniors barge in and steal all the food and drinks. Greg’s uncle is the DJ and rips everyone off, Rowley and the girl become a couple, and Greg is left with the chicken pox. ( )

Meh. At this point, it's more of the same - exactly as you'd expect. ( )

I wish I'd started keeping a journal a lot earlier on, because whoever ends up writing my biography is gonna have a lot of questions about my life in the years leading up to middle school.
