You guys all know Wendi Aarons. A couple of years ago, someone forwarded you one of those “funny” viral email things that you usually delete without opening because it generally involves real letters that kindergartners wrote to God or that picture of the darling kitten that has her paws in the air with the gun pointed at her. This time the person that sent you the email was one of those people that never forwards anything so you thought it must be good and you actually opened the email and you read it and it was funny, so funny that you forwarded it, and you never do that. And then you received it from eighteen other people including your mom who still has an AOL account and you didn't know she even knew how to forward. That wonderful, viral, phenomenon was "An Open Letter to James Thatcher, Brand Manager, Proctor and Gamble" aka The Always Letter and it was written by Wendi Aarons.
Wendi’s blog is www.wendiaarons.com (That’s just good branding.) She was kind enough to have me over there with a guest post on her blog last week while she was off getting her aloha on. She's a lovely hostess.
Wendi writes the funny – like her instant classic Coke-Dependency and one of my recent favorites, her short and sweet Fourth of July post. So, you should absolutely be reading her whole deal, especially since you’re old friends and everything.
