I walked into my room the other day to find a letter on my pillow. I picked it up and looked at the colorful writing on the envelope. My name artfully scrawled all over it. I was intrigued. Who wouldn't be?
The letter opened with a very typical, brown-nosing.
Dear ever-so- powerful and awesome mom,
I knew this was going to be good and I wondered to myself what my two, clever, crafty teens were after. As I read down the letter I became increasingly impressed with the business-like manner in which the letter was written and the extreme attention to detail the two of them had gone to in order to hopefully be granted their request. Below is a picture of the letter followed by a transcription.
Dear ever so powerful and awesome mom,
We (Maddy and Gabby) have been thinking a lot about summer lately; even though it is around five months away we end up talking about it. We were quite disappointed when you said we would not be able to go to camp this year, but we understand your decision and respect it. Maddy and I have found something else to go to- which is fun but less cost than a camp. It is called the Anime Expo in Los Angeles, June 26-July 3rd (or 2nd).
Katelyn and her mom told us about it and have agreed to drive us there if we go. We hope to go 2 days, for it is what Mrs. Fiers was planning. It does cost money but Maddy and I are paying for our own tickets. We will be there most of the day so Maddy and I will pack our Bento Boxes for lunch.
I will be carrying my cellphone so as to be able to keep in touch with you. If you decide to let us go, one of the days you are there you can use these FREE LA ZOO tickets, so you can be in the area. You can have fun with one of the little kids while being close to us at the same time.
Mrs. Fiers will be with us the whole time. I will be texting you my blood sugars and anything else I need to tell you throughout the day. We each would be buying a two day ticket, so you wouldn't have to pay anything, including food and drinks. We are paying for everything.
We have looked into this a lot, and are very excited. We've put a lot of research into this to make sure everything would be in order. We really hope that you let us go and we love you very, very much!
Maddy and Gabby
Zoo Tickets: Good for two people
Times: Yet to be determined
Location: L.A Convention Center
How could anyone say no to all that planning and research. It looks like they have done their job well. I have two very excited girls who will be going to A-Ex and maybe meeting some of their Cosplay idols. I don't even really know what that means but I do know that it will further their artictic talents. I'm so proud of my girls.
