"Old and Decrepit"



...Sent me this postcard from Greece.

I received it Wednesday.

She's in Italy again now, part of a 2 1/2-month trip through Europe with her best friend.

I tried scanning what she wrote on the other side of the postcard, but it didn't turn out very well. So here it is:
Hey Daddy what's up?
So we're in Greece now, which is amazing! Everything about it has been fun. The ferry over (from Italy, I think -- ed.) was like a cruise ship, the water is grogeous and we have a gorgeous view of the Acropolis right from the hostel.
When you get old and decrepit you should definately (sic) come to Greece, it's so peaceful.
Next we'll start travelling around the Greek Islands Crete and Santorini, so it'll be fun.
Love you Daddy, see you soon.
Love Monica
AHEM! Old and decrepit? We exchange emails about every day too. So this morning, I raised this point of contention with her.
Her response?
"Well seeing as how u won't be able to really travel until u retire, i called u old and decrepit, because well 60 is kinda old."
But I'm not 60. I'm only 52.
I'll just go buy my casket now.
