A father passing by his son's bedroom, was astonished to see the bedwa snicely made, and everything was picked up. Then, he saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow. It was addressed, "Dad." Withthe worst premonition, he opened the envelope and read the letter,with trembling hands.
"Dear Dad, It is with great regret and sorrow that I'mwriting you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend, because I wantedto avoid a scene with Mom and you. I've been finding real passionwith Stacy, and she is so nice, but I knew you would not approve ofher, because of all her piercings, tattoos, her tight Motorcycleclothes, and because she is so much older than I am. But it's notonly the passion... Dad, she's pregnant.Stacy said that we will be very happy. She owns a trailer in thewoods, and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share adream of having many more children. Stacy has opened my eyes to thefact that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone. We'll be growing itfor ourselves, and trading it with the other people in the commune,for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want. In the meantime, we'll praythat science will find a cure for AIDS, so Stacy can get better. Shesure deserves it!! Don't worry Dad, I'm 15, and I know how to takecare of myself. Someday, I'm sure we'll be back to visit, so you canget to know your grandchildren.
Love, your son,John. P.S. Dad, None of the above is true. I'm over at Tommy's house. Ijust wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life thanthe report card that's in my center desk drawer. I love you! Callwhen it is safe for me to come home."
