Thanks for the Loan

Dear Friend

I am writing to you tonight to thank you for the loan, which you extended to me earlier this year. As you know, I didn’t need to use any of your money, but the possibility was always there, if I needed some ready cash while visiting the United States.

You told me to keep it “Just in Case”. In Case meant “In Case” I wasn’t able to fulfill my dream of traveling to the United States. In case I wasn’t able to extend my dreams, just like you did when visiting Denmark.

A part of me wanted to act in anger and tear up your “In Case” with the thought of “How could she”, or “Why did she do something like that”, but I regained my senses and kept it safe, “Just in Case”.

Now that I’ve returned to Denmark, I’ve returned it to the place that I found it, inside a travel guide to your home country. I wouldn’t be expecting to see me in the recent future, visiting you and all, but as we both know, things often come when we least expect them.

I knew where your loan was the entire time, I was in the USA, though I never considered using it. I did take it out of my wallet once in a while, and ponder its existence, and to send you “Thank You” thoughts from California.

It was a very special and unexpected show of generosity on your part, and I won’t forget, what you tried to help me with, even though I never used your money.

A True Gentleman does not accept money from a Lady, which I feel fits in this case. In case you have a hard time understanding my use of the “Blog” to express my thanks, let’s just say that it is my way of repaying you in a public place.

Your friend

Just an American lost in Denmark. The past few weeks being back in the good old USA. It is like Aliens have taken over my mind, changing it from what I knew to what I know. It might be the heat, or it might be the influence of hearing English 24 hours a day, but whatever the cause, it is only temporary while dealing with this time and space.

  1. I’m pretty sure a friend who cares that much about your dreams will enjoy your thanks, no matter if they’re in person, in a letter or a post. Then again, knowing your propensity for fiction, this friend and her loan might just be the fruit of your imagination 😉 I guess we’ll never know for sure… 🙂
