Subject: FW: Why Parents Drink
Why parents drink
A father passing by his son's bedroom was astonished to see that his
bed was nicely made and everything was picked up. Then he saw an
envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow that was addressed to
"Dad." With the worst premonition he opened the envelope with trembling
hands and read the letter.
It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing you . I had to
with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with mom and
I have been finding real passion with Stacy and she is so nice. But I
knew you would not approve of her because of all her piercing,
tight motorcycle clothes and the fact that she is much older than I
But it's not only the passion...Dad, she's pregnant. Stacy said that
will be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of
firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more
children. Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn't
really hurt anyone. We'll be growing it for ourselves and trading it
with the other people that live nearby for cocaine and ecstasy. In the
meantime we will pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so Stacy
can get better. She deserves it. Don't worry Dad. I'm 15 and I know
to take care of myself.
Someday I'm sure that we will be back to visit so that you can get to
know your grandchildren.
PS. Dad, none of the above is true. I'm over at Tommy's house. I just
wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the
report card that's in my center desk drawer. I love you. Call me when
it's safe to come home .
