Dear Someone...

Dear Roon,

I always knew you were a super hero, but I always thought your powers were more geared towards nerdy computer things.  Now know that calling you "not mechanically inclined" is no longer accurate.  Way to go, changing the radiator by yourself, and saving us $100!  You rock my world, baby! 
See, I can write you a letter without being snarky...
By the way, you forgot to take out the kitchen garbage this morning.  (Okay, I ALMOST wrote you a letter without being snarky...)

I shouldn't have laughed at you, and made fun of your mechanic skills...

Dear Cooking Magazine,

What the crap is a "celery rib"?  I've heard of celery stalks, and I've even heard of celery hearts, but ribs?  I took a guess, but it sure looks like there's a disproportionate amount of celery in the crock pot now.  Yes, I could have Googled it, but if I have to Google terms in your magazine, I don't think it should be categorized as a "Simple and Delicious" recipe.  I'm just sayin'...

Who do you think I am, Julia Child?!

Dear Kids in my Sunday School Class,

I'm really glad that you like me, and all, but I think it was a little harsh of you to tell your teacher, that alternates with me, that you don't like her anymore.  Don't get me wrong, I'm flattered, but that doesn't exactly sound like something you should be saying in church.  Got it?  Next time, just smile and nod, and know that I will be teaching the next week okay? 

Really?  My lessons are "interesting"?!

Dear Texas Heat,

So, we meet again...  Why not?  It's May, after all, so flirting with 100 degree temperatures is about right.  But, if you could do me a favor, and let up long enough for us to enjoy a day OUTSIDE on Saturday, I promise, I will tolerate you the rest of the summer. 

Who am I kidding?  You can't read!

Alright everyone!  I know you've got to have one or two letters rolling around in your brains that you wish you could send too...  SO DO IT!!!  Pay a visit to our wonderful hostess SHORTMAMA, write up, and link up.  It's as easy as pie...Marie Calendar's style!

I'm going to have to google "celery rib" for myself now. That is definitely a new one...

Ribs, stalks, hearts--it's all celery isn't it?
Not sure I'd like 100 degree heat but I'd take a bit of it over our snow/rain. Of course we get snow until june sometimes--the joy of living at 7200 ft.

Im with you on the heat! Went from like low 70s to near 100 here too! And Tuesday its supposed to be in the 70s again?! I think Mother Nature is going through freaking menopause or something!

Isn't it funny how hurt our hubby's feelings get when we diss them! Simple & Delicious... yeah right, I always find something in a recipe that makes me have to think. I wanna go to culinary school so I can just throw stuff in & not look at a recipe :)

My hubs is not mechanically inclined at all. Ever.
I complain about the rain, but anything above 74 is hot for me. I whine. It's ugly.

Emmy said...

I have no idea what a celery rib is either. And hope your Sunday school kids keep liking you :)

love your snarkiness!

Celery rib isn't in my vocabulary nor my diet.

Also, I voted in your poll but as soon as I did so I realized you didn't have your settings changed to unlimited votes.
