HAMILTON WEDDING (REVISED)
March 6, 2012
Dear Brother John,
I was moving some boxes out of Dad’s place last weekend when I happened upon this gem. Remember how he used to send these out? Always pragmatic, he was. Anyway, I’ve attached the itinerary for the Hamilton Wedding that never was (with my own notes and revisions included for effect, naturally). I thought about torching the thing but decided that it’s not my place to erase such an informative time capsule–that you might get a kick out of it after so many years.
Enjoy, you crafty bastard (see insert):

MISTAKES MADE AT HIGH SPEED
I’m not about to miss this green for a patent idiot like you! thought the impatient man in the Mazda just before racing around a distraught Isuzu and speeding through the intersection on yellow, whereupon he struck down a pedestrian in the crosswalk. Who knows what that girl was thinking at the moment of impact, that moment when her light went out like a blown fuse. One witness said the girl was listening to music and looking straight ahead when she trotted into the street and met her fate. Horrible, he said, just horrible the way she twitched. Didn’t even see it coming. Someone yelled but she couldn’t hear them. The police confirmed the man’s account when they found her blue headphones near the sewer drain.
Three’s a crowd for a Monday morning intersection in the city.

WRETCHED ROUTINE OF A WRECK
I’m particularly abstract after vomiting in the morning.
I’m not a cat person. I like them, sure. But I would never own one. They walk on your face at night.
