    Summary

    Dear Eduardo,
    It is mid July 2005 and you have just paid a girl named Alice 30 million dollars to wipe three years from your memory.
    In your jacket there are details of a bank account containing a further 500 million dollars and tickets to Singapore.
    Go. Don't look back.
    Eduardo Saverin

    Summary

    There’s a gentle practice in deceiving one’s own child in order to stay his questions (and an even gentler one when it comes to raising someone else’s child), the same way there’s a poetry to learning, at a point, that one’s own parents were occasionally full of shit.

    (A gyptian's view of the world, when there was still just one to worry about)
