The Gentle Art of Persuasion

786px-All's_well_that_inks_wellBuddy’s writing assignment last week was to write a persuasive letter.

Which he did.

In style.

I have given this same writing assignment to all of his siblings, but no one has ever turned in an assignment quite like this one.

I laughed out loud when I read it and thought you might enjoy it, too.

Here it goes…

 

Dearest Angel Girl,

As you are undoubtedly aware, the eponymous movie Cinderella has a showtime this weekend in the local Princess Theater. I have reason to believe that you are formulating plans to go and see said “flick” and I am writing this letter to try to persuade your persona to allow me to venture with you.

Now, we have gone to movies before and you’ve realized that I am a very fun person. It would be a grand time, two siblings, making a night out of it.

You might say that I am an annoying person, to which I offer no counter, but even so, said ability to perturb is occasionally a method of great enjoyment. It would not be fair to judge me on that alone.

Of course, if we went together, it would be a great time for sibling bonding. I might also be persuaded to buy part of your ticket. It could be of monetary gain for you to let me come with you.

All in all, I hope that I’ve managed to peruse your curiosity in order for you to allow me to venture along with you.

Your affable brother,

Buddy

 

He got an A on the assignment.

And a ride to the movies.

Never underestimate the power of persuasion!
