How often can one keep saying how fast time is flying?? Let's just get on with the letters for the week.
Dear Red Car with two front seat riders: It is important to know the rules of the road before you take off, tearing down a street that is full of construction. If there are two lines of orange cones down a four lane street, you are to stay to the outside of the cones. Right? The sign, where you entered the road, told you to stay right! That doesn'tmean you can drive, like a bat out of hell, down the center of the road. Got that? Lesson over!
Dear Mr. Police Officer: You know how much I respect you! I have fought many battles for you in the past year, as you have been defiled by the media. But when I see you texting, on your phone, as you are driving down the street, then I have to call you out! The state's ban on text messaging, while driving, took effect in 2011. And that means you, Mr. Police officer! Follow the rules that you enforce. Please!
Dear Mom (meaning Mother Nature): Make up your mind. Hot! Cool! Rain! Drought! You give us so much rain that the roads flood and cars cannot get through. And then you withhold this blessing while the grass turns yellow and the flowers wilt. We suffer for days with such stringent heat. And then you whisk us into a simple day of coolness before you throw us back into the oven. MAKE UP YOUR MIND! Is that asking too much? Really!
Dear Darian: It sucks doesn't it? Learning the lessons of becoming an adult? You can't have it both ways. That is not how the world works. You want to be seen as an adult. You want to be treated like an adult. Yet, you want to shirk your duties and play like a child. Not how it goes in the real world. In the real world you have to tend to your responsibilities first. But, there will be rewards for this. I promise! Hang in there.
Have a good and happy weekend!
