{Today's Letters}

Monday, March 05, 2018

Dear Dad of the Year, every night you read the Children's Storybook Bible to Brave during bedtime. Last nights story was about the women who had been hemorrhaging for 12 years. When Brave asked you what a hemorrhage was you dove right in and told her all about periods and tampons. By the end of the conversation she was calling tampons "coupons" and asked if all girls bleed from their baginas. Welp, I think that went well. Want a beer? Dear Bravey Train, this morning you asked me if museums had unicorn bones. The fantasy land you live in grounds me in ways this adult often needs to be tethered. PS- Wanna take a trip to the Smithsonian and find out? Dear Picture Frame, you've been hanging on our dining room wall for over a year now showcasing your black and white stock photo of the Taj Mahal. I intended to replace you with a family picture months ago but you've become a running joke for our friends to ask about our love for India whenever they come over. Fist pumps for being as magical as a leg lamp at Christmas. Dear Timothy James (who always gets two letters), there are 168 hours in a week. Saturday we spent 8 of them catching more trees than we did trout but I'm convinced the laughter that followed your Eddie Vedder impersonations and crazy medical stories is what scared the fish. Thank you for always bringing your A-game of playfulness.

Happy Monday, y'all!

We have been trying to catch some fish two weekends in a row. We haven't caught a thing either. This weird weather has fish down here hiding. Haven't seen them yet. Good luck on your next fishing trip.
