“real-life” friends of mine who read this blog will recognize the link i’m about to post, because i sent them an “oh-my-gosh-i-just-found-this-incredible-web-site” e-mail yesterday. um, talk about feeling schmoopy!
dear old love is a collection of anonymous notes, submitted by readers, addressed to past loves and crushes—requited or unrequited. site founder andy salsberg edits the submissions, attaches a clever headline to them and posts every day.
and guess what? when i started reading the entries, i thought for sure i was going to feel sad, but a lot of them made me laugh, and some of them were pretty heartwarming. below are a few of my favorites; you can click here to read more. (warning: the site is addicting!)
Pet PeevedI don’t care that you miss my dog. When you cheated on me, you cheated on him, too.
Literary AwardI know I’ve won, because I’m the one you call to talk about books.
Only in DreamsWhen we dated I was distant and couldn’t get fully into you. Now that we’re apart you’re the only one I have sex dreams about.
what would you say to an old love? i’ll tell you mine if you tell me yours...
