Is this childish message cryptic or just funny?

Reading a couple of these personal-experience posts reminded me of my little diary experience I had about half a year ago..

It seems a bit too mundane to post here, but it IS pretty strange.

On a random page inside the diary, I found this one day:

Here are the reasons this is strange/not my own handiwork

1) The book came in a sealed package from the store.
2) The hand-writing DEFINITELY isn't mine
3) I'm a perfectionist - I would have blotted out the mistakes or tore the page out
4) There's no one else in my house who could have written it

and the biggest reason this is strange to me:

5) It makes me think of an imaginary friend I had when I was little kid named Elizabeth. She was constantly "bugging" me to play with her and telling me how special I was. You should know, I was a very lonely kid.

Hey there and welcome to ATS.
When you said the diary was wrapped when you bought it does that men the writing was already in it when you opened it ?

Either way this is quite strange that it reminded you of an 'imaginary' childhood friend ... when was the last time Elizabeth came into your mind ?

And even if you had written it yourself (and not known you'd done it) again the question is why would this happen now ?

Interesting. Woody

Well, the diary was sealed, so I assume the writing wasn't there when I bought it unless it was written before it was shipped off to the store. I opened the diary but didn't use it until about 6 months ago, which is when I noticed the message.

I really can't think of a reason this would pop up now, unless i did it while sleepwalking or something. Although it isn't my hand-writing, it would make sense because I've thought about my childhood a lot lately and have been sort-of disconnected with friends and family.
