Everybody Says Hello

Michael Kun

 Synopsis:   Sid Straw, the author of the correspondence that forms Everybody Says Hello, isn’t Everyman, but he is someone everyone knows. He tries just a little too hard, says just a little too much, and that extra effort and those extra words are often his undoing.  If only Sid could get out of his own way, his life would be wonderful. While Sid Straw may frustrate you at times, you’ll end up rooting for him the same way you root for your own equally imperfect friends.

P.S. Have you ever been to Louisville? It looks lovely from my hotel

room, and the woman at the front desk couldn’t have been nicer.

Dear Kurt,
          Just a quick note to thank you for this great opportunity with your

company, and for agreeing to reimburse me for my travel expenses for

my relocation from Baltimore to Los Angeles. I promise not to stay at any

five-star hotels or eat lobster. At least not every night!
          Looking forward to making a difference at Velocity Computers in

2005 and beyond!
          Best Wishes,
          Sid Straw
