I know that you’ve been in line hours fighting the crowds for those shiny shiny Black Friday specials, but for me, you’re wasting your time.
You’ve sent me letters asking me what exactly I want for Christmas. I’ll tell you forget all that consumer crap.
What I want this holiday, and everyday are just a few “simple” things that you have failed to give me though it has been repeatedly asked. My plea, my wish, is for this:
Despite our differences. Despite your lack of understanding…
If only to understand
What you don’t understand.
I want the chance to have a chance.
To not be scoffed at and dismissed without being given the opportunity to prove otherwise.
For just one genuine chance….
For validation to not have to exist.
For your unconditional love.
But perhaps you’re right… I’m probably asking for too much. In which case, you can feel free to send me any of the following glories of electronic & fashion consumption…
a flip camera
Because If I can’t have the simple things at least try and satiate me with those that you feel really matter this holiday season.
Love always- your black sheep of an entertainment loving daughter,
