O is for Open Letters

It's time for things to get exciting up in here. Today is the letter O and I am bringing you a series of small open letters.


Dear Florida,
Did everything always move so slow or did I just start moving faster when I got to New York?

A former resident

Dear Old Lady on the train,
There is a phrase  by Coco Chanel that goes “Before you leave the house, look in the mirror and remove one accessory.” This applies to you, please consider it next time.

A person who wishes their phone wasn't dead so I could have snapped a picture. 

Dear New York City Students,
 Today is the first day of standardized state testing. Rock it. I have faith that you can prove that one test doesn't measure all you know. 

A teacher who despises standardized testing

Dear Trader Joe's Employee,
You were quite enthusiastic, but I do not need your personal feeling about every item I buy. If I am buying it there is a good chance that I either like it already or someone recommended it to me. Please don't try to convince me "it's the most awesome (insert any item here) you've ever had!" It's annoying and takes extra time.

A Trader Joe's fanatic who doesn't need help

Dear Nail Polish,
Why can't I master the art of applying you streak free? Why do you have to make it so damn difficult?

A frustrated self-polisher

Dear hot weather,
Can you cool it down just a tad, 86 degrees is a little bit too warm for April.

A sweaty mess



  1. LOL!

  2. Hello, Laura! Bahaha, these are great! I love the dearblankpleaseblank website! Hilarious!

    Have a lovely week and happy A to Z!

    PS) Orange is my favorite color so I'm loving your blog title! :)

  3. Cute. Sorry you couldn't take a picture of the lady with too many accessories. Stopping by from the Challenge.

  4. Dear Fourth Term,

    Why are you so hard to teach? The students lose focus. I lose focus. The admin only focuses on how unfocused everyone is. [sigh]. If Summer Break is anywhere nearby, can you bump her about 3 weeks closer? That's all I think I have left in me.


    Apologetically Apathetic

    Thanks for the post!
