Dear Mrs Field,
Your blog looks great! I can't wait to read more about your newly-wedded life! I hope you include some of your great cookie recipes!
Dear Microsoft Works Spreadsheet,
I never really liked you. Sorry, I guess I just didn't take the time to get to know you. You always seemed to be speaking Russian when I would send you emails of Xcel files - that was a little frustating for me. But I spent the afternoon putting food prices and serving sizes into your nicely resized squares, and I found that you are a math wiz! Wow! You are so smart! Thanks for multiplying 9 pounds of hamburger by the $1.29 per pound price. That was so quick! I loved the way you totaled up our week's menu, too. It was a suprise to see that we are under our camp budget! I think I might spend more time hanging out with you!
Please remind me not to shop the Monday after Pay Day. Though I love your low prices, so does everyone else! It was odd to see so many empty shelves. Where, oh where are you hiding the Lil' Smokies? I don't need to eat them, I just need the price.
P.S. How much am I supposed to tip that bagger guy? I'm still a little confused about that.
You are on time out. You can not come out until after lunch. And I mean it. I don't want to hear any of your: "It's not my fault" or "But Why?"s If you keep that up, you'll be in time out all week, mister.
We are eagerly awaiting our first movie. Are you sending it? Will it get here today? All my friends say you are the best. I'll let you know how I feel after we get to know each other a little better.
PS Please don't send anything too scary. I'm afraid of the dark.
Dear Running Shoes,
We've been good buddies this last year. Thanks for all the long runs along Rapid Creek, and sticking with me on that big hill by the dentist office. I don't miss that hill. Do you? It was nice to see your familiar face in our new home here in Hawaii. Running on post with you has been interesting. I've enjoyed seeing all those soldiers running and singing, haven't you? It's motivating, don't you think? I'm sorry to be the one to tell you this, but I think our time running together is nearly over. Don't worry, I'll keep you around for other adventures, like camping and gardening, but it's time for me to move on.
See you around!
