Dear Alycia,

I accidentally stole your pencil today when I left the park this afternoon.

It was a good thing though because on the way home I called Ray to let him know that I was leaving the park and I could run that errand for him that he needed Gwendolyn to run but she forgot about and so anyway that’s a long story and it would be too much to explain but Gwendolyn will know what I’m talking about and she’ll be glad I had a pencil to write down the address to the tool shop so I could pick up Ray’s Dad’s father’s day gift so that I could meet them later and then they would be able to take Ray’s Dad his gift when they go to Cameron on Saturday for a family wedding.

Without the pencil – I would have been completely lost because I can NEVER remember directions. And so the task wouldn’t have gone as smoothly as it did.

So. I’m very sorry for stealing your pencil. But it did save the day.

I’ll make it up to you by treating you to your favorite drink at your favorite watering hole. That way I can rightly return the pencil to it’s owner, properly.

Plus – isn’t it just a good excuse for getting together at Starbucks and gossiping about Stephen?

(Don’t worry – I don’t THINK he reads the blog. I could be wrong though. You should ask him for me. If I ask him it will be obvious. If you ask him it won’t be so obvious. LOL!)

You can leave a comment here if you want or just email me or call me. But I wanted there to be a public record of apology since the thievery was done amongst our peers. I felt it was only right.

Additionally, anyone who was present is also welcome to join us for the meeting in which I will return the pencil in question. Of course, I’m extremely poor right now, so it’ll have to be a dutch date for everyone else besides Alycia. LOL!

Yours Truly,



  1. Dear Sarah,
    Thank you for your heart-felt confession. I must admit that I did not notice the theft of my beloved pencil until later that same evening. I was trying to reconcile our checkbook, and alas, my beloved pencil was not in its normal place (i.e. the crumb-ridden bottom of my purse)LOL! I was able to borrow another and the deed was completed.
    As for joining you at Starbucks… FUN! 🙂
    Would love to! When do you think would work for you? I am available most evenings, except this weekend, when we will be at the Folklife Festival.
    Thank you again for your heart-felt confession. It was a great surprise to read “Dear Alycia” on your blog!
    Would have read it sooner, but, this week has been crazy!
    Let me know when we can meet!


  2. Dear Sarah & Alycia,

    Thank you Alycia for allowing Sarah the use of your pencil, even if she did steal it. Sarah, thank you for doing hubby that super big favor and being such a great friend. Love ya.



  3. Dear Alycia,

    I’m looking at my calendar and I’m thinking Thursday night or Friday night. What do you think?

    I sure wish Starbucks had Cheesecake. Don’t you think Cheesecake and Coffee sounds good together?? I’ll end up with the “veggie tray and a grande black tea w/1 splenda please” order again though….probably. LOL!! That’s OK though!



  4. Dear Sarah,

    Would love to say Thursday or Friday, but, obviously Thursday is already gone and Friday is jammed with all sorts of exciting things I have to get done.
    What about next week? Maybe Tuesday evening?
    How does that sound to you?
    Are you all going to the Folklife Festival this weekend? If so, look for us there!
    And yes, cheesecake and coffee sounds muy bueno!
