Diary of a Madman July 30th
July 30, 1988
Today is my birthday and my loving husband bought me a wonderful gift – you. I guess after we found all of my old diaries stored in the attic, he knew I would love to have a new one. So today I am overjoyed to have such a loving husband. By the way, Diary, his name is Kurt. We have been married for 3 years and we have never been happier.
Kurt couldn’t get out from work early, or so that is what he told me. He wants me to meet him at my favorite restaurant tonight. Of course, it’s a surprise party. It’s more than obvious; but I’m still wondering who will be there. Sally and Steve, for sure. Maybe the Carlsons will be there? Maybe my parents? I’m so excited this morning I woke up and he had this beautiful dress hanging on the door with a note. That said how much he loved me and
I killed another woman today. She was very pretty, Diary. She looked almost like Sarah. She had the same long brown hair and slim figure. I really miss Sarah.
Today was such a long day, Diary. I followed her useless husband around town. I had to make sure that he would give me enough time to be alone with her. So after he left towards the flower shop I hurried to her house. I had thirty minutes to get the deed done; but I really only need two. She was too busy writing in you. So, thank you Diary, you made it easy for me.
The hunger to kill subsided today. I don’t know when it will return but it will. But now thanks to you, Diary, I won’t be alone.
