Dear Someone

Today I'm linking up with Short Mama at Family of Shorts and participating and Dear Someone letter.

Dear Matt,

I'm sorry you've been sick. I did everything I could to make you feel better. I even made homemade chicken noodle soup for you per your request. I'm even more sorry that you have to sleep in a tent this weekend. Yes, I will miss you while you are at drill but let's try to remember the alternative here. I'd much rather be without you for 4 nights and 5 days than 428 days again. Have fun and shoot some cardboard terrorists for me. I'll have your favorite dinner cooked when you get home.

Your loving wife
Steph

Dear Ozzy,

Yes, I know daddy is gone. He will be back soon. I miss him too, but you don't have to whine all night long. You don't have to bark when a car drives by. And when it's time to leave to go to Grandma's in the morning, get your tail out of bed. Do you know how bad I feel when I have to drag you out from under the covers to leave? I know mommy's car isn't as cool as daddy's big truck, but we have to get moving in the mornings.

I still love you,
Mommy

Dear Car,

What is your definition of "soon" as in, "Service Engine Soon"? Why must you wait to turn that light on until 12 hours after my hubby leaves? He warned me it came on the other day but never for me until this morning. You dirty rat !#@$!@#. I will take you to Autozone and see why the light is on, but you are going to have to hold out until Monday.

Signed,
Silver Bullet owner

Dear College Algebra,

You are lucky I'm not totally lost yet and still getting an A. No one cares about linear equations or graphing parabolas except for maybe engineers or architectures. I'm going to be neither. Please don't get too much harder or I'll be done for.

Yours Truly,
The girl who leaves class every Monday and Wednesday with a headache.

I think the car thing falls under "Murphy's law". As far as college algebra goes...good luck with that! I'm pretty sure they only time I have ever used it (the things like graphing) was to do the homework!

Okay, first: your dog actually sleeps under the covers? That's awesome!
I love your pics of your hero on the sidebar.
Is the silver bullet a nissan? I used to know a person who called her boyfriend's car the silver bullet. And it was a nissan. :)

AND, I forgot: I would like to shoot some REAL terrorists. HAHAHA!
