Man pulling out power cord

Dear Mom and Dad,

I hope this letter finds you both in good health and high spirits. I wanted to take a moment to write to you about a topic that we’ve discussed many times over the years: power cords.

As you both know, I have had a unique approach to pulling power cords from the wall for as long as I can remember. You both constantly warned me about the dangers of pulling them out by the cord instead of the plug, saying that I would start fires, fry the cords, turn the plugs into smoldering ashes, and who knows what else.

Well, I have some news for you. I am pleased to report that none of your dire predictions came true. I am in my fourth decade on this big blue marble we call Earth, and I have never started a fire, fried a cord, or turned a plug into smoldering ashes. In fact, I have never had a single problem with any of my power cord pulling… ever!

I know that power cords were more frail when you were younger, but I always took that into account. I know that you witnessed others yanking cords at an angle, but I knew they had to come out straight as an arrow. I know that you were both just trying to protect me and keep me safe, but I guess some things are just meant to be done in my own way.

I hope this letter brings a smile to your faces and reminds you both that sometimes, unconventional approaches can lead to unexpected outcomes. I am grateful for your love and support, and I of course look forward to our next discussion on power cords.
