Message From Mom? Advice?

Hi Mom!One day, I opened my e-mail, and I found this message from mom, or Ice-cream as I renamed her.

Perhaps many of you have seen what my mom sent me, or some variant.  But what was particularly unusual about the e-mail is that my mom NEVER sends emails like this.  Lots of emails about fun fun family gatherings, but nothing like this. While she claims that she just thought it was particularly funny, I can’t help but to wonder whether there is a deeper message or advice here.  Was she speaking to me as her former teenager?  Was she speaking to me as a current parent of her teenage grandson?  Was this some kind of advice from Mom?   I have no idea, so just on to what she sent me…

——

“A father passing by his son’s bedroom was astonished to see that his bed was nicely made and everything was picked up. Then he saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow that was addressed to ’Dad.’ With the worst premonition he opened the envelope with trembling hands and read the letter.

Dear Dad:

It is with great regret and sorrow that I’m writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mom and you.

I have been finding real passion with Stacy and she is so nice. But I knew you would not approve of her because of all her piercing, tattoos, tight motorcycle clothes and the fact that she is much older than I am. But it’ s not only the passion…Dad, she’s pregnant.

Stacy said that we will be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children. Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn’t really hurt anyone.

Don’t worry Dad. I’m 15 and I know how to take care of myself. Someday I’m sure that we will be back to visit so that you can get to know your grandchildren.

Love,

Your Son John

PS. Dad, none of the above is true. I’m over at Tommy’s house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the report card that’s in my center desk drawer.  I love you. Call me when it’s safe to come home.”

    I was like… “WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH YOUR LIFE?”
    until I read the end.
    P.S. Lots of them will start writing letters like this.

    YOU SAVED MY LIFE SIR!

    I’ve always had trouble maintaining my grades. My mark gets better year after year but still end up short. I’ve always tried harder tho’. I only have myself to blame on. I knew it’s all my fault after all.

    I tried to copy this letter, left it on the bed, and stayed at my friend’s till noon. When I got back home, my father had this grin in his face, so he knew I failed again. But he approached me, just patted my back and said “Not bad, I’m proud of you son, better than last year”, so he found the letter.

    Now I’m motivated to do better with my studies more than ever.

      Matt, I’m so glad. Thanks for sharing. For some people, academics come easier than others. And importantly, people come into their own at different ages and find if they keep at it, doing better is at the next stop on the train. So keep at it, and good luck. The Big Milkshake.
