I was writing out a Christmas card for my g’ma and after filling out her address I started to write her name on the envelope. But I couldn’t make the pen move. I couldn’t write her full name.
The problem is I don’t know my g’ma’s full name. I don’t. I do not know her last name. I remember two surnames she has had in the past, but I can’t recall this new one. I don’t remember the new guy’s first name, either. Hmmmm.
I just wrote my note inside her card and since we don’t really know each other, it was awkward and shallow. But, I tried to jazz it up as much as I could and kept my audience in mind. My g’ma in old, really old. She’s a farmer’s daughter from Texas with big hair and country sensibilities. My note is on the inside flap of a Snoopy Christmas Card. Behold, my note.
I sure do miss you. I miss everyone is Texas, it will always be home to me. Forever. It’s really beautiful in Philadelphia and the people are friendly, enough. No place will ever have people as friendly as the people in Texas. Take care and I love y’all.
p.s. Whatever, Martha! is hilarious. I will officially begin referring to my new friends Alexis and Jennifer (always paired) and recounting our many adventures throughout the day. We’ll probably have a three-way one night, but just for the hell of it. They’re making cootie-catchers right now! I so want to be at that party.
