Journal Entry

Forget trying to worm that adolescent code out of me. You do not want to release the hurricane sequestered in these pages. Braver souls have succumbed; stronger egos have wilted. Just walk away.

  5. Keeping a jar of Nutella in the cupboard helps take one's mind off cracking that code;)

    Loved this Kymm! I only wish that by the time we had it all figured out they didn't have to leave us:)

    1. Ha! So you still think it will be figured out someday? Jar of Nutella, bottle of Jack Daniels, whichever way the wind blows.
      Thanks for the love, Valerie!

  6. Never had a journal, but I imagine it would have held code. Nicely done.

    1. Yep. Let me know if you ever crack it. I'm still working on my own!

  11. 'stronger egos have wilted'...that line actually makes me want to go pit mine against my teenagers again, to see if I can remember how to come out on top. Great wording, and perfectly encapsulated children of any age, honestly.

    1. Oh, man, I don't wanna be instigating anything! And yeah, I'm definitely encapsulated in there. Thank you, Shannon!

  12. Great job, per ushe, Kymm. My mother and brother read my journal when I was a kid, and laughed at my proclaimed love for Brett. Well, here we are, twenty years later--Brett is still ridiculously gorgeous and I'm still writing. :-) I'm not looking forward to my own kids' journal days.

    1. When I open that floodgate, the shit that will flow from my mother having read my diary when I was 12 is gonna do major damage.
      Needless to say, my older daughter used to leave hers OPEN on her bed and I have never, ever been even slightly tempted to read it. Which means, of course, that I hate her. lol
      Thanks, Tri!
