A friend of mine recently had a bad date. I was trying to make her feel better by suggesting she could always try the other team. She informed me she had and that the “V” was nothing to write home about. Well, I’ve been excited about the “V” since I was 12 and I have literally erected monuments to it’s greatness but this is not about me nor my monument.

I started thinking about what she said. “It was nothing to write home about.” I often wonder at the origin of sayings like that.  Rather than trying to find out the origin of this saying, I created what I think one of those “letters home” would look like.
