I have received three letters and one postcard from my unsolicited pen pal since the beginning of October. He continues to let me know how many years we have known each other --18 apparently, since September of 1998, "even if you've [I have] been out now and then having three daughters." He recounts things such as where I eat lunch, how I prefer to pick it up and eat in the office, and how long he has known my ex-husband and other people in his office building.
He even includes friendly sentiments, such as, "I hope your kids are growing up getting their homework done, and getting good grades in high school, middle school, and elementary school."
And although it can't be denied that he does have an uncanny recall of my luncheon preferences and family life, he really does not know me at all! Because, c'mon, really? What friend would ever send me this?
This is something you would send to Ellie (not to me or you*, just Ellie).
Although, actually, she probably already knows this stuff. So, for those of you who don't know, but may care, enjoy - the 2015 Thanksgiving Day football schedule.
