- Six Months

Dear Minnie,

I have lived here six months now and I really like you.  I tell people I like you, and sometimes even say I love you, because it's true.  I talk about how beautiful your lakes are, how much I love my neighborhood and lots of others that you have near by like Uptown, Loring Park, Nordeast and Edina.  I think you have awesome restaurants, I pretty much only drink your beer, and I have a hard time coming to grips with the fact that I simply don't have enough time to explore all of the fun things to do in and around the cities this Summer.  I can't wait to show you off to my friends when they visit, because I know they will like you just as much as I do.  I'm not even afraid of your winter, even though it will be here pretty soon. 

But Minnie, in friendships there has to be some give and take.  I feel like you've taken a lot of my sentiments and not given much in return.  I mean a lot of what I like about you was already here and would be here whether I was or not...what I'm saying is, I think it's time for you to do something special for me.

And by that I mean - you need to bring out the big guns.  In the form of super hot men that want to date me.  I know it may appear that I'm good at being single, and perfectly fine being independent, but this is a brave facade that I am getting tired of maintaining.  I would very much like for you to produce a partner-in-awesome for me.  I will be at the Basilica Block Party this weekend.  I trust that you will present several opportunities for me to hand out my business cards and that these gentlemen will act accordingly.

Laurie Elaine, Ph.D.
