In the Northeast homeschooling world, 'Letters of Intent' is the term we use for the official letter we have to draft to the school department. You know the one where we ask for divine permission from the eternally broke, poorly performing bureaucracy to educate our own children, with our own funds, in the manner we believe best for them?
Yes, that letter.
And yes, at times, I do have issues with authority in my life.
But today's Letter of Intent is so much different. It's a Friday meme. It's where a letter is used to praise, thank or admonish someone or something however you wish. You know we state our intentions. Or perhaps act a little snarky. I just love that word. Stop by Foursons and join in. Hey, it's cheaper than therapy. I already feel better.
Have a great weekend!
Dear Library, Bank, Office and Grocery Store:
I appreciate your 'language of love' spoken through the sharing of food. I know you love me. I know you would like me to return again and leave my money, books or a lifelong commitment to pay you monthly payments for the rest of my life. You do not need to leave a basket of unhealthy, teeth-rotting, artificially flavored candy at each counter, to compel me to be loyal customer. I already am. Perhaps if you had a teenage boy with thousands of dollars of orthodontics, who thinks brushing is a race, you would change your offerings. Maybe if you realized how difficult it is for the mothers of little boys at each checkout. "No you can't have that, we are on out way home, I am sure you will not starve without it." This speech is getting so old.
What about the good old days?
"Gee! Thanks for the free pen!"
Sincerely, Your Loyal Customer
