Letter to The Geek Husband

I'm sending you this letter in a bogus software company envelope so
you'll be sure to read it. Please forgive the deception, but I thought
you should know what's been going on since your computer entered our
lives two years ago.

The children are doing well. Tommy is 7 now and is a bright, handsome
boy. He has developed quite an interest in the arts. He drew a family
portrait for a school project. All the figures were good, but yours
was excellent! The chair and back of your head are very realistic. You
would be proud of him. Little Jennifer turned 3 in September. She
looks a lot like you did at that age. She is an attractive child and
quite smart. She still remembers that you spent the whole afternoon
with us on her birthday. What a grand day for Jen despite the fact
that it was stormy and the electricity was out.

I am doing well. I went blonde about a year ago and was delighted to
discover that it really was more fun.

I discovered that the household chores are much easier since I
realized that you don't mind being vacuumed and that the feather
duster makes you sneeze. The house is in good shape. I had the living
room painted last spring. I'm not sure if you noticed it. I asked the
painters to cut air holes in the drop cloths so you wouldn't be

Well, dear, I must be going. The family is leaving on a ski trip and
there is much packing to do. I've hired a housekeeper to take care of
things while we are away. She'll keep things in order, fill your
coffee cup and bring your meals to the computer room just the way you
like it. I hope you and the computer have a lovely time while we are
gone. Tommy, Jen and I think of you often. Try to remember us while
your disks are booting.

Love, Mary
