[The first set of letters is here and the second one is here.]
Dear Rainy Season:
You are really putting a cramp in my style (especially my hair; curse you, humidity). Thanks to you, I have not been able to take my evening walks around the school for 4 days now, so I decided to try to wake up early in the mornings.
Why on earth did you rain again??? I thought you were supposed to rain only in the afternoons. For crying out loud, it's like you can't make up your mind! Are you just trying to divert me from my weight loss goals? Thanks to a lack of exercise, I've been feeling like a lazy blob. I really need to get out of the house and move a bit. This is good not only for my physical health but also my currently dismal state of mind. Ugh.
I need a cup of coffee.
Dear Cup of Coffee:
You taste yummy. I think I'll have another one of you soon.
Dear Sun and Blue Skies:
Thank you for coming back so I can do my walks. Can you tell your buddies Heat and Humidity to go away?
Dear Crescent Moon:
You were exceptionally beautiful tonight.
I finally ran you today. I first speed-walked 7 of you and decided to run you. Completely. I haven't run one of you since I was a Freshman in high school. I remember that I always huffed and puffed pathetically, trotting behind the others as they each passed me one by one. At least today, I felt like I was running only for myself. Thank you for giving me a sense of empowerment.
Dear Next Monday:
I normally would dread having you arrive (even if your considerably more attractive buddy Thursday is currently in town), but I admit that I look forward to seeing you soon! When you make your presence, I will drive down to the French consulate and pick up my passport that will hopefully have a long-stay visa. ^.^ I can't wait!
I just saw a commercial for one of your Angus beef wraps. Screw you.
