Letters to Someone

Dear Crazy Chick at the Gas Station ~

Yes, I do remember that super funny episode of Desperate Housewives!! The one where Lynette thought it would be OK to take her son's ADD prescription to give herself more energy??!!? OMG, so funny! Good for me I didn't rthink anyone really did that. You however, clearly considered it a "how to" episode. I looked REALLY closely for your wireless headset and it wasn't there. So that means that you were high fiving the pump and singing to yourself. Not cool. At all. Scarier still that you had to drive A CAR to get to the gas station. Maybe next time you could indulge in your addiction earlier in the day so by the time the rest of us are out and about you've normed. Umkay?

More Than a Little Concerned,
The Unmedicated Lady Behind You

Dear Esteemed Colleagues,

How nice that you have nowhere else to be but the office. I'm truly delighted for you. I am, however, getting a little tired of defending my choice to see my family every night. Yes, my husband did pick up the kids today, but that doesn't change my desire to see their faces for more than the 40 minutes they're mine each morning. I'm funny that way. My projects are in line. I am still smiling and playing nice with others. The brilliant ideas can keep. I'll be back tomorrow.

Cordially,
The Senior Manager of Monkey Business

Dear Self,

Slow down, girlfriend. You need to take a deep breath and soak it all in. That little boy is a lot closer to 8 than 7 and he will only think you're a goddess for so long. Enjoy it. And the youngest one. Oh my. She thinks you are dipped in gold. Prove it to her. They will never remember that you didn't serve every food group with each meal. They will remember that you sat with them at the table and asked about their day. Kiss them goodnight even when the dishes aren't done. Hold on tight to what you love, it just may not be there the next time you're ready.

Loving You,
Me


Dear Honest to a Fault,

We've gotta work on your timing, babe. I know Daddy didn't really steal anything when he took you and your sister to the movies without paying. I wouldn't have purchased $27 worth the tickets for a matinee either if there was no one there to sell me tickets or take them after I purchased them. But Buster, when we leave the theaters you should at least wait until we're outside to say "my favorite part of this theater is that you don't even have to pay!!!" Wow! Your positive outlook is so contagious and being near you makes me smile, but there are a lot of reasons we should crack up laughing. Running wildly from the door of the theater for fear of being arrested should not be one of them.

I Love You,
Mom
