The letter

Dear Family Member,

I have had an outstanding experience in Brazil. But unfortunately I ate my host family’s dog because I didn’t know that it wasn’t culturally appropriate. So they kicked me out of their estate and now I live on a farm with seventy-three chickens. The farmers don’t mind me staying although we rarely talk. Instead we just throw apples in the holes that we then cover to protect the apples from this coming apocalypse. I want you to not come to Brazil because I can’t stop eating dogs.

Love, Luke

Love and Peace,
