Two puppies

My favorite line from this letter when discussing grades for the semester: “The important thing is that there’s only a week left.” Clearly good grades and my education was at the top of my priority list.

The acting class that I miraculously got a B in was taught by the same professor who taught Modern Family’s Eric Stonestreet. I’ve been waiting for my sitcom for a while now.

Maurice Henry, mentioned below, was a Kansas State football player and my lab partner in P-World (Physical World), also mentioned below. Inspired to by this letter, I looked him up and found this recent article.

May, 1987

Family,

Yo what’s up. This time next Monday I’ll be all done. It’ll probably take a couple of days to get all packed up and unwound and stuff.  I had my acting final tonight. It consisted of going to a party for an hour in character–the character I did for my monologue (George from Some Time Next Year). It was pretty fun. I stayed a little later and shot the bull with some of the people in the class. There’s some cool people in there. I have a P-World test (Ooooo) tomorrow and the final Saturday. The library final (Ooooo) will be Thursday. Those two classes should be A’s. P-World lab will probably be an A- not sure. The music final and Am. Novel finals are both on Monday. Those could both go either A or B. Acting will probably be a B. That gives me a range of 3.3 to 3.8. The important thing is that there’s only a week left. I went to the Ballards sale this week-end. I spend $25. I got a Mickey Mouse T-shirt for $1. I got a Old Mill Beach Club for $6. And a pair of Chuck Taylors for $15. I guess that adds up to $22. Oh well.

I hope you (Mike) had a good time at the prom.  I want you to know that we are really interested in having you in the house next fall.  I think it would be great. It was fun to watch you do so well at the track meet.

G & D & R & I went tot he Alumni/Varsity football game Sat. It was a pretty good relaxing time. We got rained out the second half and left. We saw AM — she made Var. Cheerleader. I also saw Maurice Henry–he was sitting in the stands cuz he’s wounded–I was going to ask him for his autograph but didn’t get a chance.  We also had a lil’ sis picnic this week-end out at Tuttle. This was Friday afternoon and evening. That was pretty fun. Oh yeah, two guys in the house each bought a black lab puppy. They’re great. Only thing twice as cool as a puppy is two puppies. They went to the picnic at the lake and had a ball. Well, guess I’ll see you in about a week and a half.  Ta ta.

Love,

Matt
