dear ellen

i want to tell you something that happened to me. my mother knocked on my door last night. i didn't say anything. she knocked and tried to open the door. she said, 'i made ugly fish in soy sauce with chives for dinner.' my mouth watered a little and i felt very depressed.

i think she was very lonely and just wanted to say something out loud so that someone else would hear it. because she knows that i never leave my room or speak to anyone or acknowledge anyone when they try to communicate with me or open my door.
