Sorry about that

Dear Laurie,

I’m really sorry that I accidentally threw your Barbie out the car window when we were on I-55 coming back from our vacation in Arkansas in 1974. Despite your conviction that I did it on purpose, I want you to know that she really did just slip out of my hand when I was trying to give her some fresh air. I can’t really explain why I was so careless. Perhaps it was exhaustion from the overwhelmingly enjoyable time we had in Hot Springs.

It was most unfortunate that that damn station wagon behind us ran her over. Mostly I’m sorry that that damn station wagon only dented her one boob. Had she been totaled maybe mom and dad would have gotten you a new one. Sorry about that.

I’m really sorry.

Your loving sister,

    I STILL haven't gotten over that unfortunate "incident". I will probably be screwed for the rest of my life. Now I understand why Sara never got interested in Barbies. It must have been something in my subconscious that prevented me from getting her any. In a small way, I truly thank you for that. I still think it's only fair that you give me the $3000.00 you owe me for her fresh air. Love Laurie

    Even though, an unfortunate situation, this post absolutely cracked me up! Poor Barbie and poor You and your sis!
