My parents took me out to eat last night with my sister for my birthday, because I won’t be seeing them tonight. I think my mother doesn’t really like that I’m with Paula since they’re so close in age. They gave me a couple hundred dollars and a fifty dollar gift card to Barnes & Noble, which I’m not to tell Sharly about. My sister gave me a new journal and a cool pen. The kind of pen that makes your handwriting look awesome. The other thing my parents gave me was a journal I started when I was 4 years old. This cracks me up. I’m pasting it in my current journal. I was a master of suspense apparently.
My name is Wall Grimm and this is my first official journal ever:

My mommy gave me a suprise and the suprise was
I want to know what the fucking surprise was! How the hell am I supposed to remember that. This is a lesson the wise young Valente has now taught the older, less wise Wall, be sure to document because the older you get the duller your mind is, at least this is true in my case.
I will never know what the surpise is that my mommy gave me, damn.
Anyway, in the style of 4 year old Valente Grimani:
1 day I whint with mommy in daddy in my sistr to eat in they gav me presints. That’s all
