reason #567 how you know you're living in nyc and still figuring your life out

dearest mother and father,

my birthday is coming soon. remember how i asked for that beautiful purse? forget it.

please send the most durable bed-bug protector covers you can find along with a high quality vacuum.

and don't be surprised if i ask for new bedding come Christmas time. 

this morning, in between the snooze button pushes, i dreamt of the bugs. and then i woke to find one on my bed. 

right now i would very much like to be rescued. 

your daughter

good luck with the bugs- I have a friend who suffers from spider bites (new ones every morning) and also wishes for a fabulous new vacuum.
I think I would wake my whole building if I woke up to a bug in my bed!

Oof, you're a calmer, more reasonable person than I.

Morgan said...

OOF! I feel for you. That would scare me to bits!

Oh god, you don't need a vacuum cleaner you need a flame thrower. Torch the buggers.

I hope they go soon, I'm itching just thinking of them and I'm about 3000 miles away.
