Kyria did a post like this last week and I thought it was a fun concept, so I am playing along with my own set of little letters:
Dear body: Let's get through this 10 mile race on Saturday and after that, I promise to never sign up for a March race ever again.
Dear cold: You've overstayed your welcome. I'm tired of sniffling, sneezing, and coughing. Go away.
Dear March: I know you are a volatile month that usually contains snow and cold temperatures but maybe this is the year that you should be unseasonably nice. Please? I'd love it if tomorrow was the last day with a high in the single digits.
Dear humidity: Please come back. I miss you dearly. Without you around, it's shockingly painful (literally) to turn on light switches and lamps. My skin misses you, too.
Dear conference planners: 75 minutes is too long for a presentation. No one wants to listen to anyone drone on about a topic for 75 minutes.
Dear North Carolina: Why are you so slow at processing tax returns? I'd like my refund back in a timely manner. Your standard of 6 weeks to process a return is ridiculous in my opinion.
Dear Minnesota: I love you, I really do, but I am reminded that love is a choice during winter because it is very hard to keep loving you when your weather is so horribly cold.
Dear people who say "at least you aren't living in Charlotte": I know. I'm so glad I am not living in Charlotte anymore, but is this going to forever be a rebuttal I'll have to put up with when I complain about something? What's the statute of limitations on comments like this? I hope it's not much longer than a year.
Dear coffee: Thanks for making my mornings infinitely better than they would be without you.
Dear parents and grandparents: Thank you for fostering my love of reading. I can't imagine my life without this hobby.
OK, your turn - what little letters would you write?
