To Whom It May Concern

To whom it may concern:

It has come to the attention of the present occupant of this trailer that a certain young man would be arriving in town tonight and would need a place to rest his weary head. Since the said occupant could not be present when the traveler arrived, she has left this note and trusts that the young man will find his way to bed without a problem. However, certain conditions must be met before the traveler will be welcome in trailer #2. In addition to the qualities listed below, he must also have driven all the way from Nova Scotia, Canada in two days, he must be extremely exhausted, and he must have a girl waiting to see him. If the reader of this note decides he does not qualify, he must immediately exit through the broken door and pass the night in his Bronco.

P.S. Tell him his lady misses him, that she wishes him a good night, and he may call her in the morning and come pick her up after he has had enough sleep.

Conditions for boarding:





Violators of said terms will be prosecuted.

He had been away all summer on business, and I housesat for him in his absence. I thought I was not going to be able to be there to welcome him home, so I prepared this letter for him to find when he arrived. As it turned out, I was able to be there after all, and we had a sweet little private reunion.

Some lines have been omitted from the acrostic because it spells his entire name, and I felt that would be an invasion of his privacy.
