A Letter to Dad

Courtesy of my friend Tom.

A father passing by his son’s bedroom was astonished to see that his bed was nicely made and everything was picked up.

 

Then he saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow that was addressed to ‘Dad.’

 

With the worst premonition he opened the envelope and

read the letter.

 

 

Dear Dad:

 

It is with great regret and sorrow that I’m writing you.

 

I had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mom and you. I have been finding real passion with Stacy and she is so nice.

 

But I knew you would not approve of her because of all her piercing, tattoos, tight motorcycle clothes and the fact that she is much older than I am. But it’ s not only the passion…and Dad she’s pregnant.

 

Stacy said that we will be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children.

 

Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn’t really hurt anyone. We’ll be growing it for ourselves and trading it with the other people that live nearby for cocaine and ecstasy.

 

In the meantime we will pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so Stacy can get better. She deserves it.

 

Don’t worry Dad. I’m 15 and I know how to take care of myself. Someday I’m sure that we will be back to visit so that you can get to know

your grandchildren.

 

Love, Your Son John

 

 

 

PS. Dad, none of the above is true. I’m over at Tommy’s house. I Just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than a lousy report card that’s in my desk drawer.

 

I love you.

 

Call me when it’s safe to come home.
