Day Eight - Your Favorite Internet Friend
Ah, my dearest protege… This may or may not come as a surprise to you, but you are by far the most entertaining person on my dashboard and someone I will be glad to keep in touch with on Facebook come next year. Every time I see one of your drooling or scathing posts I am reminded of the early days of the Jungle Book when you and I would bore Bryan with our endless chatter of guys and girls...
Day Seven - Your Ex
Katherine came into my room the night before last to tell me happy birthday. She had just walked Logan out and after the birthday wishes, laughed and said, “And at least there were nothing out on the porch.” It took me a second or two to connect the dots and I laughed uneasily and agreed. The last year has put much distance between us. So much it’s almost laughable. I have...
Day Six - A Stranger
I have put this off for a long while, but I realized recently that I could write this to you. I know what you went through must have been very difficult and that you are so very young that you aren’t even sure how to process it. I hope you grow up to be strong and that you are able to take something positive away from the experience. I hope you family mends and you find a new center in your...
Day Five - Your Dreams
I have big hopes. Big dreams. And two wildly different “aspirations” (if we were playing Sims I would call half of you “family” and half of you “knowledge”. I want a wildly successful career, but you know that already. You also know that sometimes nothing would make me happier than the domestic simplicity of a husband so that we can adore each other and children...
A kick in the teeth is good for some.
A kiss with a fist is better than none.
Day Four - Your Sibling
Ask and you shall receive, so this letter is for you, Veronica Rose. Over the past year or so I have made a decided effort to get closer to you. Age wise it works out so that it’s Katherine and me and then you and Samantha. But before I left I wanted to be able to say that I really knew you as more than just my sister. And I think I am finally getting there. It has been a lot of fun playing...
Day Three - Your Parents
Only day three and I’m stumped already… Despite the fact that occasionally you drive me absolutely out of my mind (which I believe is normal), I love you both dearly. You have been extremely supportive of me throughout my entire life. I always feel bad when you expect more of me than I expect of myself because sometimes I think you end up disappointed. But I know that you are never...
Day Two - Your Crush
I’ve had a thing for you for a few years now. Despite the fact that you are far too old for me. And the fact that you were married. And the fact that you’re technically dead. But none of that really seems to matter. You are adorable, a book worm, the conscience of your group, and still plenty flawed. It’s really most excellent. Just know that I think you are adorable, Remus...
Day One - Your Best Friend
The people who fit this title have changed radically over the past four years. But, now it is the two of you and in two radically different ways. You are my best guy friend (and have been for now well over a year) and my best girl friend (going on something like three years now and I’m thrilled). I guess I make the differentiation because I mean the title in two separate ways. However you...
