Dear Policeman Who Called Me At Midnight,

You are no rookie.

I knew this not from the tone of your voice (deep) or the way you told me that you had my daughter in your custody (calmly).

No. I knew this by the way you kept saying “nothing is wrong” and “your daughter is not in any trouble” in the shocked pauses between my one word answers.

Thank you for keeping her safe, and for making her first experience with the law a positive one.

And I am sincerely sorry about that little run-in I had with your brethren in 1987.  Really, I am.

Very sincerely,

Parent Fearing Payback
