Greetings and Salutations!
I hope this note finds you well and in better mental spirits! I have long since forgave you for chasing me with that rubber chicken - we all go a little wacko. To show I have moved on I am writing to let you know about the most fantastic place...Open Face...in the glorious South Wedge. Have you been? If Martha Stewart, Calvin Klein and Elmo had a...how do I say..."sleep over"...this would be their tasty-cool- super fun offspring...ok, that's weird, but I'm still loopy from a night of intense decoupaging. (Britney heads on lizard bodies vs. Paris bodies with gerbil heads - amazing!). Anyway...check out the website www.openfacesandwicheatery.com and support a small business. They're saving for a hot air balloon. (I made that last part up).
Best friends forever (or until you chuck another chicken at me)
