Letters to Someone

It's Thursday again.  Unbelievable!  If you like my letters you should head over to Shortmama's and see what she and her other bloggy friends have to say in their letters today.  You can link up, too if you have something to say to someone special.

Dear Starbucks ~

Although I don't even remember what life was like before you came along I must end the affair.  I long for you in the wee hours of the morning and calculate how far I can get on my projects before I need you again.  And don't think that I didn't notice you sneaking in the holiday flavors again.  You always know how to lure me to you and I am so smitten that I can't resist your advances.  I am not sure if there's a latte rehab, but I may very well be a candidate.  Why do I love you so?

Undercaffeinated and Overspent,
Your Best Customer

Dear Bargain Shoppers ~

Come on over!! I have been cleaning and emptying away and have tagged lots of goodies for you.  I do need to establish some rules, though. Well, really only one.  Absolutely no haggling.  I believe that $1 is more than a fair price for a designer sweater with the tags on it.  Please do not even consider asking if I will take $1 for it and three others like it.  I won't.  Then I'll be mad and won't let you buy anything and we'll both be disappointed.  That's no fun.  I am keeping my fingers crossed to unload enough stuff to head to the Coach store on Sunday.  I love it when everyone's happy!

Play Nice and You'll Get the Good Stuff,
The Stingy Lady on the Driveway

Dear Holidays ~

Whoa Nelly!  I am super excited for your arrival, but am a little alarmed by how rapidly you're approaching.  My deal is to address Christmas cards over Thanksgiving weekend, but seeing as I haven't even ordered cards yet I may have a problem.  I am so enjoying my harvest decor and it's almost time to haul out the nativity scene.  Please slow down just a little.  Come to us nice and easy and let my family and me enjoy the season.  You are pure magic to us and I don't want to miss a single moment.  I promise we'll savor it and make you glad you came.

With Love,

Dear Blog ~

I know you're lonely and feeling unloved.  I'm sorry.  I have big, big plans to spruce you up and fill you with witty, meaningful words again.  Soon.  Right now I lack clarity of thought and don't have much nice to say.  That doesn't really make for good material to share with the world.  I hope you understand. I'll be back and you'll be my favorite hobby again.  Keep the keyboard warm for me.

Mrs Montoya

I am so glad that Starbucks isnt nearby! I love the coffeemate peppermint mocha and pumpkin spice creamers...they are pretty dang close to getting some Starbucks holiday goodness!

Mmm..Starbucks! And as for the bargain shoppers...I've never held a yard sale, I guess I don't have the patience for it! Maybe I don't have the patience for the hagglers! I'm always giving my stuff to family/goodwill/library, etc., much easier for me!

Emmy said...

Good luck on your garage sale! And yes I would be very annoyed if someone tried to talk down a shirt for $1!!

Christina said...

I hear you on the Starbucks letter. My gosh... I hate how much I love them.

MiMi said...

I can't have a garage sale because I think my crap is worth too much.

Tyne said...

You know how much I love your letters, don't you? Almost as much as pumpkin spice latte. Now that's a lot. Wish I could make it to your garage sale. I need some designer clothes with tags on them- for a buck- what a steal. The only thing I might hagle for is a plane ticket to come see you!

Ugh, I am a bargain shopper but I never barter. I'm too shy. I've had annoying ones at my yard sales though. And if you tell them no, they get all huffy about it..
