Dear L,

I was thinking about what you said earlier. Or maybe it was as much what you didn’t say as what you did. You know I can always tell when something is up with you, right?! You, of all people know how much I get in my own head and that I notice when other people do the same things as I do. I will always call out when you’re bullshitting me.

If you want to talk about it, let’s talk, if you don’t, that’s fine too. Even if you just want to come over and hang. Like we have plenty of times before. In fact, I’m not giving you a choice, let’s do it. Come over, I’ll cook you dinner, we’ll just sit and watch tv.

I was speaking about you with someone the other day actually, don’t worry, nothing bad! They asked about you, so I said how you’d been traveling and how proud of you I was. YES, I said proud, of course I’d use that word. You do make me proud. I was saying to them how you’ve really grown as a person, as a man. You’ve developed this incredible sense of what is right, how to be such a decent guy. I am proud to have you in my life.

I’m not going to make this a long one, but this won’t be the last one.

Signing off with something I don’t think we say often enough to each other.

Thank you and I love you.
