A Letter

Last week, as I was leading my excessively boring life, a strange thing happened.  I got a letter, sent snail mail.  I don’t think I’d gotten one of those in years….

 

Here goes:

 

Patti,

 

I hope this note finds you well.   I just got back from (my college).  I went camping with my friends.  We rode around town on Saturday and I saw some old houses and thought of some old friends.  One of them was you.  I remember you and how sweet you were to me.  I just wanted you to know.

 

When I got home, I looked up your name in the FSU Alumni Directory and wrote you this note.  I hope it finds its’ way to you!

 

Allen N

 

You can write back if you like.

 

+++++

 

I showed the letter to Mr. Wonderful and we had this conversation:

 

Mr. W - “Did everyone have a crush on you back then”?

 

Me - “I looked a lot better 30 years ago, before the news industry made me fat and cynical.”

 

Then the Red Socks did something and he lost interest.  No advice there.

 

I have the vaguest memory of who this person might be.  I have no idea how or if to respond.

 

Anybody out there have any opinion?
