Buddy’s writing assignment last week was to write a persuasive letter.
Which he did.
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,
He got an A on the assignment.
And a ride to the movies.
Never underestimate the power of persuasion!

Love this! I wonder who he gets his writing skills from?! I wish I had paid more attention in English class!
