Letters from OK Chick

Dear Paula Deen,
First of all, I'm a huge fan of your work. HUGE! 
I wanted to take a moment to congratulate you on your weight loss. reported you lost 30lbs. Fantastic! I know it's not easy to lose weight. Well, easier for you than me since you probably had a dietitian, trainer, and life coach. Anyway not the point, I was wondering if you could just publish some of those healthier recipes????
 Adoring Fan,
Ok Chick

Dear Thunder,
You should be very proud of yourselves.  It was a great season! Thank you for bringing this state together. Hopefully, you know how much this state loves you. I'm sure it became clear after stepping off the plane to 5,000 screaming fans. We are proud to have you in our city!
#4,050 screaming fan,
OK Chick

Dear Society,
Life is not fair. As adults we all know this fact. We know this fact because someone taught us at a young age. Therefore society answer this for me, why are we teaching children that everyone is a winner? Why are we awarding trophies and medals for participation in sports? Why are we handing out academic awards to children who did not make the honor roll or attend school every day? You might think I'm out of line, since I do not have children, but I was once a kid. I remember not receiving a trophy because my basketball team did not win enough games. I also remember receiving a trophy the next year because my basketball team did win enough games. The feeling of success, because of all the hard work, was mighty fine! Please don't take this away from children. Let them experience the thrill of seeing what hard work can do.
Confused member of society,

Dear Cox Cable Representative,
I would like to thank you for making my Tuesday.  Our conversation had me laughing all afternoon. 
It's so funny that you will not allow me to upgrade my cable package because I signed a 24 month contract. In my experience most businesses jump at the opportunity to make money. Imagine my surprise when you tell me I cannot pay you $30 a month for cable, because I have a 24 month contract to pay $11 a month for cable.  I mean who wants an additional $19 a month; which works out to be $228 a year.  Seriously...who wants more money? 
Thanks for the laugh, 
Ok Chick 

Dear TV Networks,
I'm pretty sure the reality TV fad has ran it's course. Please, and I beg of you, stop putting new reality shows on the air. I know this sounds odd coming from the girl who LOVES The Real Housewives of Any City and Millionaire Matchmaker, but some of the stuff you are putting on TV is just crap. I'm sorry, there's no other word to describe what I've seen. We really do not care what Bristol Palin's life is like on a daily basis, and the show The Glass House. What is that? Please, just stop. 
Thank you,
Ok Chick

Dear OK Chick,

I agree with pretty much everything you say and do. We should be friends in real life.

I would like to see Paula's diet too! Although I will let you in on another TREK secret: I lost 5 lbs. in 6 days! That should tell you how grueling it was.

And about the "every kid a winner" thing. I feel like it stops pretty much at 5th grade. Some of my kids performed well in middle school and high school and were recognized with awards and some didn't and did not get any awards. It probably makes the teen years that much harder.

I couldn't agree more!

I found it pretty funny that you were saying the Thunder should be proud (even though they lost), then saying we shouldn't reward children for losing. lol
