Fire Retard Ant #1’s Letter to the Stranger that didn’t get printed.

This was written for the Stranger’s Regrets issue, but unfortunately it didn’t make the cut.

Dear Mrs. Graves,

Thank you for allowing me to submit a regret for your Regrets issue of The Stranger. I have been thinking about what I should write as my regret. This challenge has forced me to think about all the stupid things I have done and said this past year. I would like to think of something funny to write, probably because I associate funny with memorable, but ironically when I hear a joke I usually can’t even remember the punchline (I wonder if this might be a problem with my intelligence, I should really get that checked out). It’s my belief that most artists my age, or at a similar point in their careers, regret things like not making enough work or saying something really stupid in front of a dealer or critic. I have these same regrets, but these are nothing a couple beers can’t fix.

When thinking about my regrets I should ask myself is there anything I should have done differently, or if presented with a similar opportunity would I do anything differently… I guess my answer would be “I don’t think I could”. I am socially and artistically retarded. So, at this point I would have to say that my regret is that I can’t think of a better regret (but this is subject to change… I’m probably going to regret sending this letter).
