Under the guise of retaining friendship, the desire to boast, beleaguer and bore runs amok, creating unintentional hilarity.

Correspondents you may recognise in this collection include: – The overachievers – The doting new parents – The gap-year schoolboy – God: Dear All, Well, another mixed year, some of it good (my fault) and some of it bad (not).
