DEAR WORLD, IT’S BEEN A GOOD RUN

Dear World,

Hey, just wanted to thank you for a cool time.

I mean, I’m not just talking about the good times either.

The bad times you gave me made me a much stronger person.

I tried to not take you for granted too much, in case you were wondering. I did really love it when you gave me lots of sunshine, but let me say, this last winter in the tundra, I’m not sure I’m ready to forgive you for that yet.

Also, and don’t take this the wrong way, but I would have stopped recycling YEARS ago if I knew that things were going to come to an abrupt end like this.

I know that we all eventually are supposed to leave this place, but I guess I wish I maybe got the memo more than a few weeks before The Rapture begins the End Times.

But really, it’s my own fault. I wasn’t attending enough meetings at the Tin Foil Hat Church, apparently.

Listen, I just want you to know that I know where I’m going. It’s alright. You don’t have to feel bad for me, because I’ve known my fate for quite awhile, now.

But yeah, outside of that, I wanted to also thank you for starting this whole thing while I’ll be in my hometown for my nephew’s HS graduation reception. At least I’ll be with family when meteors start hitting the earth, and hail the size of elephant dung begins to fall.

Oh yeah, and one last question…why the hell did you let people settle in Minnesota?

Hope you enjoy your time as a comet field, buddy!

xoxox,

Steve
