Little Letters is a random feature of “letters” to people or things that make us laugh or we appreciate.
Little Letters: Edition Five 2012
Dear Amazon, you have a lot of nerve. To think that you continue to tempt me to visit your overly-stocked, overly-plush “shelves” is just not playing fair. At the click of a button, any of your goodies can be under my Christmas tree but I do have to par down that list. So… the question: Why don’t you make it easier?
Dear Auntie, it was sure fun spending the morning with you and Jon decorating the tree and hanging lights. So glad we were able to come up – even if we were acting silly, tapping our feet and blasting the Christmas music. Even one that may have had something to do with chipmunks.
Dear Castle, for five years you made us wait for a Christmas episode: Holy candy canes, was it worth the wait! We saw commitment, fear, redemption, the jolly guy …and a kiss. I could have done with more humor though the combination of the promotional material and a love of the show prompted me to “break the no-TV rule” and watch this episode so complaints
hardly seem warranted. Thank you for being so jolly. (Oh, yes! And for putting Beckett and Castle together: It’s about time!)
Dear Christmas, December, where did you come from!? Golly, it’s already to the point of “counting down” until the 25th is here and I am not even half prepared for it. Remind me again why I let you sneak up on me… EVERY. SINGLE. YEAR.
Dear Christmas Cards, this year you are being particularly annoying. I don’t mean to hurt your creative sensibilities but it had to be said. Just so you know: I will defeat you!
Dear Christmas Checklist, why do you persist in getting longer!? It hardly seems appropriate given this is the most wonderful time of the year. You will please refrain from piling on more tasks.
Dear Christmas Tree, you are looking good. Your branches are adored in white lights and all kinds of pretty baubles. Stay beautiful because you are looking fine.
Dear Felicity and Nikolai, your picture arrived from your mommy and daddy a week ago. You two are growing up way too fast – how am I supposed to recognize you on the already rare occasion I see you?
Dear Femnista, another year is over and our editor has put together a passel of great-sounding themes. Thanks for being so great and introducing me to a new aspect of writing – and thank you, Charity for your patience. I look forward to seeing what 2013 holds for the most awesome webzine around. *smile*
Dear Paint Colors, though I was nervous about making the “right” color choices, I kind of like you all together.
On the wall, you look stupendous and that makes me giddy. Thanks for looking so grand together – better than even I gave you credit for. I approve of the new look.
Dear Person of Interest, wow! That one descriptive word seems the only one appropriate to even begin describing your brilliance. If there is any comfort in the knowledge that we are being watched, it’s that Reese and Finch are the ones doing that watching. They’re kind of awesome. *wink*
Dear Taylor Swift, I may not think you are the vocal talent by which everyone else must measure up to, though to your credit, you can write! Your Christmas song is exquisite with all of its poignant truths. Thank you for sharing it with your fans those many
Dear Strings of Lights, did you have to go bad – all in the same season? The fact that either half of your bulbs or in some instances, the entire string was out was not cool forcing me to buy new lights. Did you have a pact or something!? Your
refusal to shine brightly has been noted.
Do you have a ‘little letters’ post jumbling around in your mind? If so, why not link up!? Drop by anytime with a link; we’d enjoy reading your spin on this fun meme.
