Velma's Journal--ON THE PHONE WITH VELMA #3
ON THE PHONE WITH VELMA #3
NOTE: On Monday night I found two Christmas cards in my mailbox both with my name and address on them and both with Velma’s handwriting. I opened each. They were from Velma but, I assumed one of them was not meant for me.
JUSTIN: Hi Velma, it’s Justin.
V: Hey there sweetheart. How are ya?
J: Great… Look I was calling because of your Christmas cards.
V: Oh did you get it?
J: I did and—
V: —I got yours. That pig is cute (my Christmas card had Olivia on it) and the note was very nice.
J: Thanks. As for yours, I got two from you.
V: Two? I didn’t send you two.
J: I’m not exactly sure if the other one was meant for me.
V: Wait a minute, did you get the card about the office and no one doing work.
J: Yeah, I got that one.
V: What did the other one say?
J: Something about unwrapping me under the Christmas tree.
V: Shit! Yeah that wasn’t meant for you. I wasn’t getting’ fresh with ya or anything. (She starts laughing)
J: Although I was flattered, I figured as much.
V: Well when you reach 91 sometimes your ducks get outta their rows.
J: Would you like me to send it back to you?
V: Nah, keep it. I’ll send another one off to the intended party.
J: I won’t ask who the intended party is.
V: Good, cause I ain’t tellin’. We gotta keep some things sacred right, kid?
J: As much as possible.
V: But you did get my note about the entry to your readers?
J: I did, and I’m working on it as we speak.
V: Cause you’re not done with ’31 yet are you?
V: God bless your delicate constitution.
J: God bless all of us.
V: Right. Ok. Look if I don’t talk to you, have a merry merry and sorry about the mix up.
J: You too. Not a problem
V: Bye now.
So I’ve attached Velma’s cards with this posting for your viewing pleasure and the next entry will jump to December 12, 1931 as per Velma’s request. I will then go back to finish October and November. Enjoy.
Thanks to Courtney Zell for scanning the cards.
