Dear SPC McRoy,

My name is Neve (rhymes with leave) Jaimes. My best friend Brooke tells me that due to a mix-up in the soldier bios approved for NYS Governor Howards Support Our Troops Initiative, youre in the market for a pen pal. As luck would have it, with cold winter weather fast approaching here in New York, Im in the market for some indoor activities to fill my time. Sitting by a warm fire, writing letters, works for me. I doubt I can be as entertaining as a class full of hyped-up-on-sugar third-graders, but Ill do my best.

Soooo . . . what are you looking for in a pen pal? Ive never done this sort of thing before, and Id hate to screw it up. You want someone to keep you up to date on news and happenings back in the U.S.? Sports scores and highlights? Of course Ill send out some care packages. Anything specific you want/need? I make a pretty good peanut brittle, if I do say so myself. Can I send packages with food to a U.S. Army base in Afghanistan? While Im waiting to hear back from you, Ill look that up.

Im an up-for-anything kind of girl. So if youre missing female companionship and think some sexy letters might help you to, uh, pass the time,Ive got a pretty active imagination, and Im happy to put it to work for you. Do you find the idea of a stranger offering to send you sexy letters shocking? Good, Id rather be shocking than boring. Am I coming on too strong? I can tone it down . . . if you insist. But wheres the fun in that?

Ummm, probably now, before I fire off some letters meant to arouse, is a good time to confirm theres no girlfriend/fiancée/special someone waiting for you somewhere. Only because if my guy were serving overseas and some random woman started sending him lust-filled letters, thatd definitely piss me off. Although my guy wouldnt need another womans letters because Id be sending him all he could possibly want. But you get my point . . . right?

And youre not one of those amoral dog types who would cheat on his girl by engaging in any type of sexual interaction with another woman, are you, Rory? Ive had too many dealings with that sort of guy, a particularly unpleasant experience very recently as a matter of fact. It ended with the rat bastard needing four stitches. (An unfortunate accident. Really.)

I just reread that last part and I sound like a nut job. Im not. More like Ive exceeded my limit of male bullshit for the year. So Im taking a break from dating, which gives me lots of time to spend on you! If you want me to spend time on you, that is.

Let me tell you some stuff about me to help you decide. Im a twenty-four-year-old, happily single gymnastics instructor who lives in Westchester County, New York. But my real passion is adagio, a combination of intimate dance moves that includes acrobatics and acro-balance. My partner and I perform across the Northeast, but if the moneys good well travel anywhere.

When Im not working or performing Im usually at the gym. In the warmer weather I like to run outside, almost always with my overprotective older (by six monthsits a long story) brother, whos a cop, by the way.

My favorite food: Grilled chicken with avocado spread on whole grain bread. Favorite non-alcoholic drink: Water. Favorite alcoholic drink: Margaritas. Love them! Favorite color: A deep rich purple. Favorite edible treat: Dark chocolate covered almonds. Favorite part of the male anatomy: A full set of lips. *wink*

Im enclosing a picture of what men seem to find their favorite part of my anatomy, something for you to visualize if/when I should come to mind. If you want to write back, Brooke set up a PO box. The address is on the envelope. If something has changed, and youve found another pen pal or no longer want one (or dont want me in particular), no biggie.

Either way, take care, stay safe, and be well,

Dear Neve,

First off, please call me Rory (rhymes with story. Sorry, couldnt resist.) Or Mic. Were big on nicknames over here and thats mine.

Thank you for your letter. I got it yesterday, which was the day after Thanksgiving. They try to do it up big here, to make the day special, but its not the same as being at home. And I was in a funk, thinking about my family and friends, all together at our pub, everyone there but me, stuffing themselves on Moms delicious turkey, Aunt Jackies honeyed ham, cousin Barbaras mashed potatoes, and our neighbor Abigails macaroni and cheese, which is the best Ive ever tasted. Damn it, now Ive got my mouth watering again.

Anyhow, your letter came at the right time to cheer me up and give me something else to think about. Like the picture you sent. Hot damn. That had to be the finest female butt Ive ever seen in a skimpy purple bikini bottom . . . or any bikini bottom for that matter. In fact its so perfect the guys are convinced youre trying to catfish meyou know, sub someone elses pic for your own. How about we prove them wrong? Send me another picture, a full body shot this time. In that same bikini would be my preference.

To answer your question, I dont know anyone who would call me amoral. But a dog? There, uh, may be one or two girls from my past who think so. But Im a guy, and any guy who tells you hes never in his life exhibited some doggish behavior is a liar. One thing I am not is a liar. That said, when Im in a relationship, I dont cheat. Lucky for me, Ive got no girlfriend or special someone at the moment. And being of high moral characterif I do say so myselfI would certainly have told youwithout you having to askif I did.

So if youre up for writing me some sexy letters (and hell yeah, the hotter the better!) Im more than okay with reading them. For sure I like the entertainment youre offering a helluva lot more than any entertainment I could have gotten from a classroom of third-graders.

Now, about me. My bio probably told you Im a twenty-three-year-old Southie from Beantown. (Translation: From South Boston.) My family owns and runs an Irish pub there, McRoys. My mom, dad, and three brothers all live above it. Im the oldest. Been working at that bar for as long as I can remember. Couldnt wait to get the hell out. As soon as I graduated high school I went straight into the army.

Im six weeks into a twelve-month combat deployment, and I can tell Ill be seeing a lot more fighting this time around. Ive already decided this tour of duty will be my last. I only hope I survive it.

On a happier note . . . what Im looking for in a pen pal? Someone to take my mind off all the shit happening hereand so far youre doing a bang-up job. Tell me about your day. Share the story of why you and your brother are only six months apart. Tell me about your childhood, your teen years, and your dreams for the future. Tell me about the loser who needed stitches. Talk dirty to me. I think were pretty evenly matched in the pen pal department. I just happen to be an up-for-anything kind of guy. I dont shock easily. So give me all you got. I can handle it. Care packages? Im happy to get whatever you want to send.

Favorite food: My dads corned beef and cabbage. Favorite non-alcoholic beverage: Lemon-lime sports drinks. Favorite alcoholic beverage: Guinness Draught. Favorite color: At this point anything that isnt tan or green. New favorite treat: Peanut brittle. Favorite part of the female anatomy: (Im laughing because you have no idea how long Ive been sitting here trying to decide.) A butt that looks like the one in the picture you sent is certainly high on my list. Especially if it tops off a nice set of toned legs, which I bet you have since youre a gymnast/dancer. But for some reason I am really attracted to a womans feet. Not in a toe-sucking, fetish kind of way. But if a woman takes care of her feet, she probably takes good care of the rest of her. I like small, feminine feet with painted toenails. Part of the reason I love summer so much is for the opportunity to see womens feet in pretty sandals.

Okay. I sound like a creeper. But Im not. Really.

In my downtime I like to work with my hands, building things or repairing stuff. I run when the mood hits, which it doesnt often. But I think chasing after you might be fun. See, something nice to think about for a change.

Well, I gotta go. Time for lunch, then some training stuff. Send out your letters as often as you like. Please dont wait to hear back from me. Sometimes things get crazy, but Ill do my best to stay in touch. Itll help if youd include your e-mail address in your next letter.
