Go Big, or Go Home

Dear Kitty,


Yesterday I had a birthday party. I got many presents, but my favorite present is you. You are so great. I can talk to you whenever I want, and you are small enough that I can carry you around in my purse. When I write to you, it is one of the high points of my day.

Kitty, I would like you to know that I am one of those people that likes to please people. Today I brought my boyfriend over for dinner to make sure my family approved of him, and of course they did. I am happy they approved of him; he is a nice and thoughtful person. I feel like it is good when I please people.

I sometimes feel so caring. A few hours ago I made sure that everybody was having a good time. I told everyone how nice they looked, including the boys. When I do that, everyone else compliments me.

Kitty, today I felt so confident. When I walked into school today, I felt like I was on top of the world. When I looked at all the boys, they looked right back at me with big grins on their faces.

Kitty, I was feeling so funny today. I really did not want to be with Peter, but he is so boring. I love the jokes my sister says, but everyone that hears them would laugh at them.

Well, I have to go to school now; I will talk to you tonight.


Yours, Anne
