    Dear Diary,
    I’ve had a super day! I do get my grandson to come here, at my house, he’s found about my Crown Jewels at my old, tiny kitchen. Well, it was and we were trying to- Ermm … Well these two people were trying to- let’s just say that they were trying to do something. Not telling anyone of course! I had to pretend I was doing yoga today, but come on! I’m a gangsta Granny, not a teenager or a young fellow, trying to be in a dream land doing yoga. Im trying to succeed to steal the Crown Jewels. Just don’t tell anyone, that. It would be crazy! I have to admire. I will make some cabbage things. Soup, and- well you get the point. I just love being a gangsta, you know, my grandson Ben, he is getting a bit interested in me, like how I stole those jewels and yeah! Hopefully he doesn’t find me boring and doesn’t believe me. I would be so upset! NO one is to ask or know about my Crown Jewels, my grandson is coming on Friday, well sadly next week.

    Granny- Mhm! Now, last question and your hired! Well maybe. So, when did you want to start this job and why?
    Ben- I wanted to start this job because I didn’t want to be poor and I also got fired and it would be a shame to loose my house and not pay the bills.
    Granny- Great reasoning. Anything else you need to share?
