Dear Town That I Live In,
Please explain this to me one more time. Someone in the borough thought that the abandoned Agway feed mill (yes, the same one that is due for demolition within the year) was an eyesore and we should use taxpayer dollars to pay for this somewhat hideous mural. I know the artist put a lot of time and effort into it, but I'm still unclear how this is an improvement. The paint is already peeling, I'm not sure what the subject has to do with our town, and the BUILDING IS GOING TO BE KNOCKED DOWN! I can hardly wait for the next improvement project.
Dear Mad Men,
I've watched a few episodes this week in my search for a Netflix series to "watch" while I knit, and I can't decide whether I'm repulsed more by the rampantly arrogant misogyny or the inane idiocy. I wanted to give you guys a fair trial, but I'm afraid I'm just going to tell myself that Peggy grows up, loses her naivete, becomes a powerful business woman, and abandon you in favor of Elementary reruns.
P.S. I don't get the appeal of Breaking Bad, either.
I've been thinking about you all week, wondering what you're doing at your internship and how you like it. You don't often text or call, but I have to tell you that your texts have made my week. I agree with your assessment of "Grocery shopping sucks", but I think there may be a life lesson to be learned with this one: "I spent $52 but buying food seems like a waste of money. I'd rather eat at home and spend money on truck parts instead." "I miss you" may have been the best one of all. Keep texting.
Wishing everyone a happy, healthy, and safe weekend!
