Letter: The highest form of flattery

Anyone can write like the “Princess.” I’ll try.

So, anyway, I’m standing in line to buy a freaking Valentine’s card, and the line is like 15 billion people long ’cause everybody and their stupid brother decided today was the best day in the history of the world to do their Valentine’s shopping, and all the dumb teenage boy at the register is thinking about is the dumb teenage girl at the other register and some dumb lady is turning her purse inside out to come up with “exact change,” like she’s gonna win some kind of “exact change trophy” or something and some idiot starts up with his “this item has special holiday pricing” crap, so I just stole the card.

Whew! I tuckered out now.
