Elly's Letter, 16 February 2009

It seems to me that today's letter might have Elly either getting all pissy about the gag Valentine's gift or moaning that Lizzie tried to eat the Bigass Bowl O'Roses and what was John thinking anyway? If so, the discussion question might be what to do about his being a tube steak.

ETA: It appears that John - surprise, surprise - got talked out of giving her the mystery gift that she hoped was as fun as John said it wasnovelty teeth and bought her the Bigass Bowl O'Roses we saw yesterday. She then switches topics and and channels Cathy-must-die as she gripes about how one lollipop made her feel "bloato". This is, of course, her way of soliciting advice about what form of exercise she should take up. I wonder how many people will tell her that jogging is a good form of exercise just so long as she doesn't end up at Timmie's gorging herself on muffins and washing them down with a double-double.

(Double-double: Canadianism for a coffee with two creams and two sugars.)
