Dear Salon Manager,

My dear friend Peggy Maher gave me a gift card for spa services at Christmas last year. Last Wednesday I used my card for a pedicure and gel manicure with your lovely employee, Jane Feldman.

The bigger the blizzard, the longer the party. I met most of my friends in the neighborhood during Snowpocalypse in 2010, and now I almost (but not quite) look forward to the possibility of a repeat.
