My Dearest Joanna,

The drive to Ft. Worth was easier since I talked to you a majority of the ride.  I finally fell asleep at 3:30 in the morning and I miss your smell and your touch.

When I woke up this morning I was filled with excitement and dread.

Excitement for I am about to embark on a journey that I thought would never ever happen. Dread as I was trying to live seven days without communication with work, no computer, no internet, no telephone contact with you.

This will be the test of my life.

I’m writing you from the Admirals Club and would like to thank American Airlines for the free way to talk to you.

I’m thinking of and loving you.

Your boyfriend,
