I’m sorry it’s taken me so long to write, but things in my life have been… interesting. Interesting might be a good word, though perhaps it’s an understatement. I’m writing in part because I’m being faced with one of the toughest situations of my life and I’m hoping that by putting this all down, by letting you know everything , I’ll come to the decision that’s alluded me since this all began.
As I’m sure you remember, I’ve spent this past summer working on a cattle ranch on the outskirts of Amarillo. My parents were hoping that I’d find a proper internship, but I’d had enough of school and classes and the city and wanted to spend my last summer before graduation working underneath the sun. I adjusted to life on the ranch well. The days were long and the work was tough, but it was a welcome reprieve after three years of nothing but classes and studying.
My boss was megalomaniac, and a religious nut job to boot, but the pay was good and I had a cabin on the prairie all to myself; lodging for workers that had been put up back when the ranch required a full staff, maybe 20 years ago. It was made of pine logs that had to be imported from out of state, and much to my delight, had both hot water and cable. But you don’t care about that, so I’ll tell you about him. About Brad.
