If you didn’t read my previous post with the first batch of letters you should stop here, read those and then come back to this post.
Zach survived camp!!! (And I survived the week without him … go figure.) Here are the last two letters I sent to him to help him get through the unimaginable separation anxiety he must have been feeling …
Perusing camp photos … no you. Have you been put in solitary confinement? Did you fall in while canoeing and nobody noticed> Get shot during riflery and are stuck in the infirmary? This not being able to hear from you is rough … maybe they moved you from camp to detox because you’re not handling the no tech thing well???
Yesterday I interviewed Sean Spicer. I would think you, being possibly my smartes child, would know who that is? Just in case … he’s the former White House Press Secretary from Trump’s first year. He was widely criticized for his in your face approach and for making shit up. (Melissa McCarthy did a better Sean Spicer than Sean Spicer himself on Saturday Night Live … I’d tell you to google it but you can’t right now. Sucks to be you.)
Anyhoo, he wrote a book to pay his bills since he might not ever be able to get a real job again and he was in Saratoga Springs signing them. Me, being the feisty little redhead I am, did not let his reputation phase me and proceeded to take charge of the press briefing and of course had the man laughing. By the time we were done he said it was his best press experience yet on his book tour. I’ll take the compliment … but wonder if he’s lying.
Hi Zach … this is SHaun, mom’s date from last night. Guess it’s going well here …
Mom again … sorry about that. To know me is to love me.
Tonight is your last night. Have fun, get phone numbers, be social! (There are some really cute girls in all those photos … anyone from Saratoga Springs???)
Love you lots,
Change your underwear again … it’s been a few days.
Day 5 … last day!
Dear Z …
Mom again … remember to put on deodorant, brush your teeth and change your underwear before you come home tonight. It will be easier sending you away again if I know you can take care of yourself.
