Dad, please accept this money to fix the broken window. I’m sure it’s already fixed, considering Lydia’s house pride and her phobia about unconditioned air, but Dear Al, I can’t begin to explain my actions at Lydia’s? I mean yours and Lydia’s house. When I get to Charleston, I never imagined that you would have Dear Dad and Lydia; I apologize to both of you for my irrational behavior. I know it’s all my fault, but if you would have listened to ONE THING I had to say, I might not have Dear Dads new family, I hope you’ll all be very happy being blond together. May people speak only in inside voices for the rest of your lives? P.S. Lydia, you wedding dress makes your arms look fat.
