I used to write letters and sometimes even poems to my brother Pete when he first moved out of the house. He showed me this one last weekend and I have to say, not a lot has changed in my life in the past 21 years (aside from having given up both caps lock and the word 'caughten'). I think you'll see what I mean:
HI HOW ARE YOU DOING? IT'S ME KADY. WE DONT HAVE SCHOOL FOR AWHILE BECAUSE OF THE TEACHERS STRIKE AND RIGHT NOW IM AT HOME. I SLEPT IN UNTIL 11:00 TODAY AND I HAVENT TAKEN MY PJS OFF FOR THREE DAYS. THIS IS GREAT. ON SATURDAY I SLEPT UNTIL 2:00 IVE CAUGHTEN UP ON SO MUCH SLEEP SINCE FRIDAY ITS PITIFUL IVE ALSO WATCHED ABOUT TEN MOVIES. THE ONLY TIME I HAVE LEFT THIS HOUSE IS TO GO TO MR. MOVIES. (IWAS WEARING MY PJS THEN TOO). "HOOK" FINALLY GOT HERE SO IM GONNA GO TO THAT SOON, BUT NOT TONIGHT BECAUSE FRESH PRINCE IS ON. ON THURSDAY A BUNCHA KIDS WALKED OUT OF SCHOOL TO PROTEST THE TEACHERS STRIKE. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? ABOUT A HUNDRED PEOPLE WERE WALKING AROUND TOWN SCREAMIN AND YELLING. I THINK THAT WAS SO STUPID BECAUSE I WANT THE TEACHERS TO STRIKE FOR AS LONG AS THEY WANT TO. BUT THE SCHOOL BOARD WANTS ALL THE KIDS BACK IN SCHOOL BY TOMORRO, ONLY THING IS, THEY HAVENT REACHED A NEGOTIATION YET SO YAY WE WONT HAVE TO GO TO SCHOOL FOR A LONG TIME. OH, GUESS WHAT THE NORTHSITE BURNED DOWN. IM DEAD SERIOUS. THEY CLOSED OFF THE HIGHWAY AND EVERYTHING. THE FLAMES WERE SHOOTING FORTY FEET IN THE SKY. I MIGHT GET TO GO TO NEW YORK WITH TANYA IN JUNE. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT? MY IS ACTUALLY CONSIDERING IT! BUT I HAVE TO PAY FOR IT ALL...
This letter was written in 1992 based on three clues: the International Falls teachers' strike, Northsite burning down, and...(Haahaahaahahahahaha!!!) "but not tonight because Fresh Prince is on".
