Day 13, Monday: Issue a public apology. This can be as funny or as serious or as creative as you want it to be.
Dearest Skinny Blister.
I am so sorry that your embarrassing story brings me so much pleasure and laughter that I cannot breathe and I end up crying, and sounding like a seal. I have loved the story every since you first told me and I think it will always be one of my favourites. That's a mean thing for me to say when you were in pain and you were upset, so I really am sorry. But you know it's the way we were raised - it'll be alright when the pains gone.
I have no idea how you're going to get through Belle doing ridiculously funny things that she finds hurtful, because goodness, sometimes you just can't hold those laughs in. I hope she learns that too though, because I'd never want her to feel bad. I love you, I miss you. I hope you're all good.
