Day 8 of the 10-Day Letter Writing Challenge
(Christina’s Day 124 of 365)

Today’s letter is a postcard for my friend of 38 years, my best friend Susan. When I was in Powell River last week I found a long poem she wrote for my seventeenth birthday which contains references to songs we loved or bands we used to listen to in high school. She wrote in cursive handwriting too.

I won’t be posting pictures of the poem here or typing it out because there’s a high degree of likelihood that she will be utterly mortified when she reads it so instead I’ll just let you know that this is the only poem I have ever read that includes references to Billy Idol, The Smiths, Dead Kennedys, Sex Pistols, Mr Mister, and The Monkeys.

That’s my Sue.
