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
with trembling hands and read the letter.
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...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.
Mine is in my desk drawer.
I love you.
Call me when it's safe to come home.
