There is a ridiculous trend on the Internet where people write “open letters” to people and companies. Every time I see one I get a little nauseated.
But this time, I think it calls for an open letter. This occasion is a special one. One of my best friends on the Internet is having surgery tomorrow. Her name is Jessica Davis.
Jessica is having surgery tomorrow for her bone disorder, M.H.E.
I will miss her until she’s back in effect writing her brains out.
So without further ado, I present to you an open letter to Jessica Davis:
Dear Jessica Davis,
What will I do without you texting me every hour? I will miss the cat stickers.
I’ll feel despondent when I don’t see a message asking me every hour or two if I’ve read your novel. I will miss feeling guilty that I’m only on page two of your book. But I won’t be on page two for long. Now that you’re going to be having surgery tomorrow, I will need something to remind me of you. So, what I will do while you’re under anesthesia is…read your book. I know you’ll be proud.
And even though I’m only on page two because my kids won’t leave me alone for five minutes to read it, I already love it. I love your writing. I’m glad that you scheduled posts to go up on The Fevered Pen because then I won’t have to miss you…too much.
I wish Bane (your dog) had a phone so he could call me and tell me how you were doing after surgery.
But the truth is, I know you’re going to be okay. You’re a brave one. You have done this 13 times or so. You’re a pro. It doesn’t make it easy, but I’m here for you girl.
So here’s a cat sticker for the road.
I love you girl. Kick surgery’s ass!
