Dear Luke,

I got my tooth removed yesterday, and I have a retainer with a fake tooth in it. It is very painful. I just finished hurling, and my mom sent my Dad to the store to buy 7-up to make it stop. I feel nauseous.

Your friend,

Dear Luke,

On Tuesday, we beat Dernot 18-0, that means that evryone swept. I find it interesting that it is a lot easier to talk to guys than girls because boys talk about sports, and and stuff. All girls want to talk about is makeup, and clothes and shoes. Accessories and their latest boyfriend, and how this person dumped that person. Blah, blah, blah. I have never had a boyfriend so I cannot relate to them. Boys are so much more interesting.

Your friend,

Dear Luke,

My parents are horrible. They said that if I get a C in any subject they will remove me from the tennis team. Tennis is like the only thing I’m known for. Being aggressive. Pegging people at the net--that’s my game style. I’m known to do that-I’m practically famous for it...well that and smashing overheads such that it bounces and goes over the fence. I hate tennis. The only time I have actually enjoyed it was when I was playing for my team. Without tennis I wouldn’t have any friends. My mom is turning into my dad. Anyway, you and your friends are playing Diplomacy...that WW2 game.. While I may pretend not to be interested, I really am.

Your friend,

Raine
