Dear Son,

I paid your ticket today.

You’re welcome.

And I’m keeping your change.

I always enjoy a trip to the local constabulary, particularly when it is DeKalb County. The Flora and Fauna always entertain. Especially the Fauna.

I wonder when I ceased to be shocked by anything.  Still, it’s probably a good thing that I maintained an air of aloof disinterest when the enormous woman beside me pulled $600 in small bills out of her bra. I have to give credit to the male clerk who accepted the damp wad and calmly counted and made change.

I suppose we all have gifts.


Your Loving Mother

P.S. Keep your nose clean. And go to church.

  1. Dear Mother,

    Thank you for that. How much was the change, like 10 dollars? You sure you don’t want to give me that so I can do laundry? Its 2 dollars per load in the washer, and 1.50 per load in the dryer. My nose is clean, and church is being gone to.


    Your Son

    P.S. What’s for Dinner?
