An Open Letter to Camp: Please don't suck

Dear Camp,

I feel like we have gotten off on the wrong foot. 

Sure, I have said things like "I hate you" and I admit, I have called you "Suckation", but you have to admit that you haven't always been nice to me.

Remember that time, when the kids had to wear garbage bags because it rained sooooo much that our tent flooded?

And who could forget the pedophile who wanted to "play" with my girls at the pool.

Surely you haven't forgotten about the time the beach was filled with all those sand digging bees?  Or how about the time the weather never got out of the 100s even at night.

Let's face it we have had a rocky relationship.  You have done some mean things to me and I have retaliated by refusing to take the dog and no longer sleeping in a tent.

I think we should make nice.  After all, I agreed to leave today and not come home until NEXT Friday.  That alone might kill me.  The only solace I have right now is that we are in a modern cabin 

Cut me some slack.  How about it only rains at night?  How about the beach is nice and not littered bees on steroids?  How about the weather remains pleasant?  How about my kids don't fight...LOL.  If you can make that happen I might consider not coming back.

Here's hoping we have come to an agreement.

Your friend,

Camping is always fraught with the joy of cold, wet, damp and rocky beds. That is why I don't do it any more. {*grin*}

Oh boy...memories. I'd have to add no mosquitoes and no bloodsuckers in the lake.

Be brave and avoid KP at all cost. :)

I use to be a camp counselor. Best time ever. Sorry yours isn't.

Hope your camping is going well!!! Those bees sound nasty...never heard of them and never want to again! Maybe they won't show up on this trip, and your letter will be heard.
