turn it up

dear tony;

yesterday after work i went and learned how to skimboard. it was a beautiful day and as i sat on the beach drinking a beer looking at the mountains, i thought how cool it was that i could have (if i didn't have to go to work everyday to be able to afford to live here) gone snowboarding on the mountains and headed straight to the beach in my bikini to skim.

by the time the sun started to set, i was chilly and wet and tired and bruised, but i had the biggest smile on my face and i was buzzing a little from the beer and i felt pretty at peace with the universe. i drove home, keeping the smile in my heart, grabbed the copy of stiff that you sent me, and crawled into the tub.

i waited until yesterday to read it 'cause, well, you know why i waited. i went cover to cover in the tub - bubbles fading, water cooling - and didn't stop till i'd read every word; some of 'em twice. my favourite part was where you said that kurt was waiting for courtney to get there, even though he knew she'd never make it. i loved how he had courtney on one shoe and frances on the other, even in heaven. it added that little bit of bittersweet i needed to make the day absolutely perfect.

you're the best one, ever.

love, raspberry
