Dear So-and-So

Dear So and So...

"Dear So-and-So" was created by the fabulously funny Kat over at 3 Bedroom Bungalow as a way to express her thoughts to random strangers she encountered in her days over there in England. My friend Amy at Fourth Frog Blog picked up the idea and hilariously so-and-so'd some lady she saw getting arrested for shoplifting at Target and also how she fed her kids tofu crumbles on their rigatoni and told them it was meat sauce, which I am not so much a fan of, but to know Amy is to love her, so I let it pass.

(Seriously. Tofu crumbles?!?

Okay. I have to move on from this, only I'm not sure how anything could be worse than solid tofu, but crumbled? Oh my suffering gag reflex...)


Dear So-and-So Who Said You Liked My Necklace at the Post Office Yesterday:

Thank you. I mean, I know I said thank you yesterday when you complimented my accessory, a very attractive tri-strand piece with coral and turquoise beads, but I just wanted to say it again. That made me feel all warm and glowy. And I liked your hair.

With warmth in my heart that I don't often feel for strangers,

Your new friend Shelley


Dear So-and-So on I-69 Yesterday:

You sped up and wouldn't let me pass you, even though you were dawdling along going 65 m.p.h. in a 70 m.p.h. speed zone. I was in the left lane. Which, passing lane? Hello? I sped up to 75 and so did you. I sped up to 80 and so did you.

My feeling about men who drive like you is that you have to drive like an aggressive jerk in your great big truck because you're compensating for something. A VERY SMALL SOMETHING. Something so small that you probably have to sit down like a little girl.

Smirking at your tiny treasure, all safe up in that big truck,



Dear So-and-So at the Grocery,

I saw you let that elderly lady go in front of you in line, even though she had more groceries than you. Even though you looked really tired.

Humbled by your charity,

Aw!! That last one was so nice. I love seeing things like that.

I'm never gonna look at a man in a big truck the same way again! LOL!
