Letter to Tomallama the Tamale boy
I've had a few things I've wanted to tell you for awhile now. So here goes. Don't you dare give up! Your family deserves better. You deserve better. You are the smartest person I have ever met, and then pair that with your crazy charisma and you should be unstoppable.( you scored Natalie didn't ya, we are all in awe) There has always just been something about you. Everyone wants to be with you. My favorite time living at the apartments was when you and Nat lived next door. I knew I could find you outside trapping gophers and was so glad I could.( and I'm still grateful you did not hang them on our tree) That meant you would stay out and talk awhile. Please don't let anything hold you back. Bogles have something holding us back. Well enough! You deserve more. I know you are struggling right now with your crappy job, so go change it. If anyone can do it, you can. It doesn't have to be your own business. There are lots of good jobs out there, but you decide how your life is going to be, just go for it. So tamale boy, I repeat, don't you dare give up already.
I know this is a super cheesy letter, but I just wanted to remind you that nothing will be given to you that you can't conquer.
