Open Letter Friday - 4/17

Polymer Clay Snails has a MeMe called Open Letter Friday.

Write a letter, to anyone. Sister, parent, crazy driver, or child who pushes your kid down in the mall play area and you debate on kicking them in the shin and running away with their toys.


Dear ebony feline,

I avoided you. You sauntered across the street and I saw your sleek black form moving with the cocky attitude your type has.

I stopped, turned the truck around and drove around the block to avoid you. I learned long ago that black cats were HORRIBLE luck for me.

Ever since I avoided you I have had a really bad week.

*TV broke. Yes… flat lined
*Minivan STILL broke
*Toddler has a reaction to the measles vaccination with a 102.6 temp
*Son got in trouble at school
*Snowstorm will put a damper on oldest daughter’s prom on Saturday
*I have a toothache and am living on Aleve and penicillin.

HOW did you manage to THROW bad luck at me? It is like you have an area of effect ability to destroy my life.

Want to quit? Want to take it back and we can start over?

I would appreciate it, I am not sure I can take much more stress. In fact, all the stress is impacting other areas of my life so… don’t take your time…. This is an emergency.


Pleading Mom/girlfriend/human who avoids you like the plague

I love this letter! The BF and I were driving one day and while stopped at a light an Ebony Feline ( I love this new more "PC" name LOL) crossed the street in front of us ...

I literally wanted him to stop driving RIGHT NOW ... the color drained from my face and I started thinking of all the bad shit that was going to happen and well we were driving so I wanted to avoid a "crashed thru the windshield" kinda mess you know ...

Btw, I own STOCK in Motrin due to my "rotten to the nerve" wisdom tooth ... I was on Penicillin too ... I'm in dental insurance purgatory so I'm waiting for the final referral that says I can go ahead and yank it out for free ...

Luckily, I don't have to suffer alone -- my friends Vicodin and Amoxicillin are right there by my side ...

LOL. You're too funny! Sorry you're going through the tooth pain, but my gosh... not sure the cat exactly caused that... but what do I know?
The only bad luck thing I believe in is the "knock on wood". I swear it works everytime! and the whole breaking mirrors thing. I'm sure I've broken many mirrors, because back luck follows me for a long time....
And I totally believe in things happening in threes. Completely and irrevocably. Had 3 car accidents within 3 weeks of each other. Seriously. Only 3 ever. And the second one totalled my car. The third one "broke in" my new car. (Long long ago.)
But I'm not superstitious at all.
Hope your weekend is better than your week. :)

BTW: my son GOT the chicken pox from his chicken pox vaccine. Shocked the doctor, who like an idiot, reassured me and said "Oh, no, he's fine; he can have his chicken pox immunizations while he has the flu. He'll be fine."
Yeah, right!

Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side!
