Guilt Compunctions & Blossoms

GOOD MORNING MARSTON

WHEN YOU SHOWED THE TULIP BLOSSOM A FEW DAYS BACK, TERRIBLE GUILT
FEELINGS CAME OVER ME. YOUR MOTHER HAD YELLOW TULIPS ALONG THE SIDE OF YOUR
PLACE FACING US ACROSS THE OPEN LOT. WELL NOW, THEY BECKONED TO STEVIE AND
ME SO LOUDLY THAT THE BB GUN CAME OUT. WE WOULD TAKE UP SNIPER POSITIONS IN
THE HEDGE BESIDE OUR PLACE, ABOUT 65 FEET AWAY AND SHOOT THE STEM JUST
BELOW THE PRETTY YELLOW FLOWER HEAD, NOT HELTER-SKELTER, BUT ONLY EVERY
SECOND ONE, THE FIRST DAY OF BLOSSOM TIME.
THE NEXT TIME THE TULIPS WOULD CALL US IT WOULD STILL BE A CONTROLLED
THINNING OR UNTIL AMMO RAN OUT.
WE SAW YOUR MOTHER AND FATHER HUDDLING AROUND TULIPS, LOUISA BLAMING
SQUIRRELS,STAN SAYING NO (HE HAD A SOFT SPOT FOR TREE RATS) THAT IT WAS SOME SORT
CUT WORM.THEY WERE SO TRUSTING, THE ONLY PLACE THEY GREW WELL WAS IN FONT OF THE
CELLAR WINDOWS, THIS WOULD HAVE GIVEN THE CAUSE OF BLOSSOM DEFECTS
AWAY, AS BB'S LEAVE A VERY DISTINCTIVE MARK IN GLASS. SO SORRY LOUISA,IT WON'T
HAPPEN ANYMORE, I THINK.
