    Funny do-it-yourself letters!

    This book is really funny. I have already used so many pages that I'm going to have to go get a new one soon(even if it's just for the break-up or the I-Owe-You letter). The signs are great, too. I've posted the 'Help me!' sign on my desk at work. Always good for a laugh...
