I Wish They All Could Be

Jenny,
I'm really glad I became your friend. Have a really bitchen summer
Love,
Alex

Alex,
I was paranoid for months after this that my mom would see the word 'bitchen' and I would get in trouble. Years later, my mom would tell me that her cousin actually did get in trouble for "letting" someone write 'bitchen' in her yearbook. And that was in the '60s! I didn't even know they had 'bitchen' back then! So I was paranoid for naught---my mom is nothing if not a champion for the unfairly punished child whose yearbook is defiled against her will.
