Journal Entry
November 13
Dear Journal, I had the MOST incredible day of my life. Well I'm not sure yet because I have only been alive for ONE DAY. But so far I have had a pretty outstanding day. First, I met my awesome new parents. Next, I found a million dollar bill on the sidewalk but I still wonder how I can walk? Then I used my million dollars to buy a sweet house.
November 14
Dear Journal, I had a just okay day. I was having a good day learning from the turkey teacher when I was in snoozing mood and the teacher got all it's time for recess and she saw that I was sleeping. So she asked me a question that she taught us and I got it wrong. Next, while everyone got to play, I got detention.
November 15
Dear Journal, Today I had a horrible day. First I tried out for swim team but they said that they are not sure that I am ready yet. Second I found a ten dollar turkey bill on on the street so I bought myself dinner. Then when I looked on the menu, everything was turkey with different sides on it. It was a disaster. So apparently that was a waste of ten turkey dollars. Oh well. Maybe tomorrow will be better.
November 16
Dear Journal, Alex and I went on an airplane ride. Apparently we didn't get to sit next to each other. I had to sit next to a grandpa and a baby. So this is basically what I heard all day: waaa and zzzzzz combined and I was going to Arizona! So I had an annoying day. Oh well, maybe tomorrow will be better.
November 19
Dear Journal, Today I had a great day. First, I went to San Tan Flat (steak house) and I was glad they didn't have turkey on the menu. Alex and I had dinner next to the fire pit. The fire was burning in my glorious eyes. Then we roasted the best marshmallows in town that were very sweet.
November 20
Dear Journal, Today I climbed a mountain with my friend, Alex. When we first got there, we saw that there was a sign that said there were killer bees so we tried to go places we thought the bees would not be. Then we started climbing and we found two paths. We didn't know which one to go to so we went to them both. But then, we saw a turkey running away from some guys so I thought that must be bad news because there might be some guys looking to eat me. It turns out they were just climbing with their pet turkey too. With a bunch of exhaustion, we finally made it to the top.
November 21
Dear Journal, Today I had scary day. I was walking on the sidewalk and then all of a sudden I glanced at the beautiful green golf course but then I saw Wylie the coyote. Wylie looked at me and I started scrambling towards the house. I knew it was too far. I knew I wasn't going to make it, but apparently the coyote wasn't hungry. I ended up safely inside my own home.

Dear Mrs. Roth,

Please don't roast me for Thanksgiving. Wouldn't you rather go out for dinner at a nice Italian restaurant that doesn't serve turkey? I'm sure I don't taste very good, especially not my feathers. You know what tastes good? Pizza. Another thing is that you could choke on my bones. Pizza doesn't have bones. If I haven't convinced you yet, I bet you won't be able to catch me. Do you want to go to all the trouble of trying to catch me? Most of all, if you eat me, my friend Alex will be very sad. I hope you don't make him sad.
