Finn McCool

I have a nephew named Finn and he recenly sent me this letter (click to enlarge):


First notice the paper. Didn't you know, 8 1/2 x 11 is so passé. Secondly, the message. You have to read it in all its 3rd grade glory. I've transcribed it below in case you can't see it, but you are only getting half the story unless you read it yourself...

"Yesterday my dad gave me a buzz cut. Now I don't sweat as much at recess and baseball. I just got home from Egor. I thought it was weird. Have you seen Meet Dare? It is so funny. I have caught a few lizards, but they always let go of their tail. It is gross. p.s. Trick or treat."

And on the back, a hand drawn Halloween wish made of snakes, pumpkins, pollywogs (or commas) and a guy with an afro, I think.



I love kids. And Finn has got to be the coolest one of all. I want to write back, but I'm not sure what to say that could compete with that. I need a young boy to tell me what the hip kids are discussing on the playground these days. Anyone have an 8 year old I can borrow?

That's a tree, not an afro!

Plus he's nine and in 4th grade. Can't you tell by his sweet spelling skillz?

Wow, Finn is far beyond the traditional check yes or no box type scribbles.

I love letters in the mail especially ones from awesome kiddos. Unfortunately I have no idea what the cool kids are in to.
