Dear Teenage Dream,

We didn’t mean to leave you alone.  I’m sorry that the only time you saw me was when I needed something from you.

Like when I asked you to look after this nightstand until I found a place for it.  Maybe it was asking too much of you to be homework central,

and a media room.   I know that you’re tired of holdin’ it all together.  I know that you just wanna feel pretty again.

Me and Lamps Plus, we’re gonna fix you up real good.  You’re gonna be a real knock-out, I tell ya.   It’ll just be me and you, and all our teenage dreams.  Just like I promised ya.   You’ll see.


See you in class,
