143. DEAREST ALBERT, I’LL MISS YOU
November 17, 1980
Albert begins to correspond with a pen-pal. He exaggerates about himself in order to impress her and, in time, falls in-love with the girl in the letter. What Albert doesn’t know is that she has also been exaggerating and is actually confined to a wheelchair. Charles accompanies Albert to surprise her in-person. When she does not want to see him, Albert thinks its because he didn’t live up to his letters — but it’s actually because she didn’t live up to hers. Albert realizes this when he surprises her the next morning. He tells the truth about himself and hope they could continue an honest relationship as pen-pals.
