After a Fight with Parley
I came home one evening to a couple of notes Hazel had written Parley after they had been arguing. Here is the first one:
Translation: (notice the P's decorating the corners)
I'm sorry that I hurt your tooth. I write this on paper, because we'd keep doing talking and you would distract me. Give this to daddy so he can read it to you. Parley please don't get mad at me.
I can imagine the scene so vividly: Hazel, so devastated by the fight, goes upstairs to make amends by writing this apology, while Parley, downstairs, has totally forgotten there was ever a fight and is now happily watching a movie.
Jed affirms my imaginary scene is correct; and that he did, in fact, read the note to a confused Parley.
2nd note tomorrow.
