I have been long overdue to send my dear friend Victor a thank you gift for hosting me this summer in Chicago. I got him some shaving cream from bbw, a package of bubbleyum, and a nice handwritten card. I also added this:
Tricks & treats,
I had a great time in Chicago. I even got to wander up to Madison, Wisconsin and visit my distant older brother Jeff and his family for a night. Victor and his friends took real good care of me.
Now once again I am sitting twelve stories up in my parent’s high-rise Guatemalan apartment. It’s been raining a lot today. Pooring. I mean, shower status. It’s nice though. Getting me all types of amped for fall, Halloween, scarves, soup. I don’t know why? Sometimes cold rainy days just make you feel that way. Right?
I start school two days after I get home. This will be my last semester at SLCC. Time to grow up I guess…even though my Mom has made my bed for me every morning I have been here.
Simple pleasures I tell you.
I love you.
