My roommate and I often write little notes and letters to one another. Sometimes they are notes of encouragement. Sometimes they are notes reminding us to take out the trash. This week the notes were of a more sinister sort.
Laurie 1 to Laurie 2:
There's a lizard in the house. He jumped out at me. I screamed. Just wanted you to know. Love you.
Four days later, Laurie 2 to Laurie 1:
I killed the lizard! I used 1/2 a can of bug spray in the process. So the ozone layer is gone, but at least the lizard is too. Love you.
