A Good Old-Fashioned LETTER From Mom

Note from Sue:
I was 19 years old (1974ish) and a sophomore in college, and while enjoying some beers at Johnny's Big Red Grill, I made a plan to go sky diving with some friends. Since I was under 21, I needed a note from my mother. I called my mother on a land-line, and she sent me the following letter:

To Whom It May Concern:

I will allow my daughter, Susan, to go sky diving, however, I do not approve of this.
Ellen S.

You can imagine how embarassing it was to actually hand this to the place and how embarassing it is to me now - to realize that it never occurred to me to fake a letter! Different times.
