Letters from Lawsy

Lauren Laws has a lot of love for the world. She's here to talk with you about those deep-rooted feelings.

My darling Rock Springs, Wyoming,

Seeing a movie with you is a treasured and intimate experience, because we were alone in the theater. No one to interrupt our indulging in A Town late one Monday night. The drive-thru at Sonic took forever, but I don't really mind, I like spending time with you. I think it's cute that you don't care about your outward appearance. You're sort of brown and dull, but it suits you, really, it does. I love the people at Wal-Mart who changed my oil. My mom was a little concerned, but we figured everyone around there spends all day fixing up old trucks right? So they could handle a Dodge Neon. And well, they didn't give us the Premium like we asked, but still, my car left feeling happy and so did I. I really appreciate that you don't overwork yourself, you always have time for me because your population is only 20,000. Wait, there's 20,000 people there?? I could only find one postcard with your name on it, but if it were up to me there would be more. Because I love you.


Dear Tangerine and Pomegranate Sherbet with Strawberry Mochi Balls,

Your sweetness is my weakness. I've never encountered anything so...Tantalizing. And you're soft and gentle. There's nothing harshly dramatic about our relationship. Just pure joy. My eyes water to think of you gone. I love you so much I wanted to share you with my friends, but it became too much for you and now you're gone. I hope you can someday accept my apology and come back to me, but I know it is impossible. No. In love, nothing is impossible. Ours is true, and deep, and sorbety, and sort of squishy, and we will, so help me, we will be reunited again.


Dear Christopher Nolan,

Marry me. I can't remember what you look like, but I would worship you forever if you let me.


Dear PS22 Choir,

If I had lots of money I would give you all scholarships to the finest colleges. And give you all your own television shows, if that was what you wanted. And I'd bring you candy. Do you like candy? You sing real good. Mostly I want us all to be really good friends.


Lauren Laws likes the noises you make in your sleep and will be living in Rome, Italy soon for a long, long time.

I like this. What's the PS22 choir?

Bare Bones Magazine said...

@Dax: I'm assuming that is the Public School Number 22 Choir. Inner-city and whatnot.

Are these things all going to get together and have a party where they write you letters back?

Kelsie Lynn said...

Lauren is bomb.

Jordan said...

I know her!!! She's so cool!!! We're friends!!!


Daxson said...

The funny thing, Eliza, is that I think this would be a perfect party: a sherbet party in Rock Springs with Chris Nolan, and entertainment to be provided by that choir. I want an invite.
