‘That’s Pretty Dang Sweet’

March 15, 2012

On NPR this morning they read from a letter that a kid in Austin wrote to a local meteorologist who’d recently visited his classroom.  When I heard what this boy, Flint, had written I laughed out loud!  Only a kid could come up with this:

“Thank you for coming to our school and teaching us about weather.  Some day when I become supreme ultra-Lord of the universe I will not make you a slave, you will live in my 200 story castle where unicorn servants will feed you doughnuts off their horns.”

At the end of his letter he tells the meteorologist “And in case you didn’t know, that’s pretty dang sweet”!

It’s a reminder to all of us grown ups that once upon-a-time we all entertained silly thoughts that read more like Mad Libs than Real Life.

{And sometimes we still do, thank goodness!}

    This is TOO funny! I love your thoughts too…adults do need to give into those silly whims and not take life too seriously 🙂

It'd be great to hear from you!
