You are here

Open letters

Seeing as we've got confessions and problems and issues springing up in threads all over the shop, I thought it might be interesting to have an open letter thread. Cathartic, perhaps. From your mother ruining your wedding, to your boyfriend who can't stop peeing on the toilet seat, or even that guy on the bus who kept making that annoying noise with his mouth, get it out here.

I'll get the ball rolling.

To my dear darling boyfriend,

Just because you are technically 'clean' when you come out the shower, it doesn't mean that I am okay with using the same towel you've been rubbing all over yourself for a month. I know you have others. I bought you two myself. Drag them out from the murky depths of the laundry basket, wash them and allow me the temporary use of a clean one.

Love, Cat

PG,

it seems that not everyone has access still, though others are slow to come back. It seems that with few people posting, others lose interest, and... :'(

Dear no one in particular,

My dad had to have his cat put to sleep last week.  He was only 8 years old, but had a massive heart attack.  They think it was an underlying heart condition as they'd just found out he'd also got an enlarged heart.  It sucks.

Dear Melatonin,
Thanks for a good night's sleep! We can't see very much of each other, but you really helped last night. I think I love you. 2, 4 hr-stints with only half an hour between? I freakin' ADORE you. But I know if we get together very often you'll start treating me like crap, just like Unisom did. You think just because a girl comes around a lot you can treat her like  a ho.

Kisses,
Sleepless in Sevilla

Good luck Courtney!  No survival tips from me.  I have only been out of the US a few times and all but 1 have been walking across the Mexican border from AZ, Niagra Falls or the Western coast of Canada.  I seriously doubt those count.

Courtney,
I've never been to Menorca, but it's a big tourist area so maybe (maybe) there are more options there. I'll have to check around.
Is HappyCow still working? You might check with them.

VegWeb peoples:

I'm with you! VegWeb has been a great thing for me. For me, it started as something of a 'Dear Diary' to release my anger and depression. I admit that and I'm sorry for being that guy. As I started to evolve, I found peace, love, happiness and made great great friends. Friends with people I care for and can't imagine my life without them. Some people I've made deeper connections than others but that's not the point.

The point is - VegWeb is awesome. I love the community feel and the positivity and love we share. I only hope to contribute to that by finding ways to bring us together.  I thank you all for your e-friendship, your gifts, your correspondence, your positive energies and most importantly - just being you. If I haven't met you in person just yet, I hope to change that real soon. Be forewarned - I'm a hugger. ;)

Love,
Josh

Dear MIL, how many nic-naks does a person really need?  We packed up 2 boxes of Christmas stuff, put one box worth aside to give to your kids (I seriously doubt anyone will want the "junk"  (oops, "treasures")), a box each for spring, summer and fall and still have the "all year" stuff you can not live without seeing to pack.  Your bookcases, shelves and counters are still crammed!  We need to get this down to enough to fit in a studio appartment.  I know it is tough but seriously . . .

Dear Prep for Work,
Please become fascinating and interesting, which right now you are not. You are for my favourite student, but wow are you boring!

Dear Money,
Please multiply in my account by magic.

Dear Physio Process,
Please be done soon. I'm tired of giving all my cash to JM, handsome and efficient though he may be.

Much love,

Dear H,
I am afraid you are going to be so badly hurt. Stop dreaming. You're over 40, it's time you grew up. It would be good if you actually started to live like an adult. You can't expect to find the perfect mate unless and until you get your head out of the clouds and take your place in the world as a grownup. I know it's not romantic and exciting, but the real world seldom is. Face it, if that person you are so convinced is "the one" has left town without telling you, they're not the one. Obsessing about one single person is how stalkers start. I know you're not a stalker but you probably seem like one to them.
And a steady diet of self-help books isn't helping much because every time you find a new one you try to change everything to align yourself with that particular writer's ideas. Don't you find that dizzying? I'm just afraid you're going to lose who you really are in the process.
I know you didn't want to hear it from me, and I'm afraid I've lost my friend.
Don't worry, though--there's a train for the real world every half hour. I just hope you hop that express of your own free will before someone kicks you onto it.
Concerned,
YG

Dear Scary Woman in the Park,

Whale tales are not sexy on, well, whales.  Please wear appropriate knickers if you're going to be bending over in front of people.
