Story of a lost journalist

Here comes the Winner!

Publishing the entry I made for the love letter competition at my work-place and which actually came out to be one of the winning entries 😀

Here goes:

Hullo little kid across the street,

I am another little kid on the other side of the street. I am a boy of 7 years and I expect you are a girl of 7. You certainly talk like one. In my class, 7 year old girls talk a lot so I know one when I see one. But I will tell you one thing honestly. You are not at all like any of the girls in my class. When they talk I can make out only blah-blahs. But when you talk, I can make out every word and that’s a big gift in a girl.

When I saw you at the store under the big lamp I knew you were the girl for me. You were looking untidy, you had your hair uncombed and you were holding a rubber ball exactly the kind we could use for a good home-cricket. There, I knew then and there we would make a great couple. I hope I could always find you dressed so perfect. I don’t want to be bossy already but I hope you will let me bat. Of course for the sake of love and all that, I’d let you bat once in a while too.

You could guess by now I am a very kind boy (I was actually looking for another word that started with g and has r and s in it but I couldn’t spell it). I have got some sports cards that I could give you. I don’t normally give anyone unless they offer me something in return. But you are different. I guess that’s what they call love. But I have always felt thats a funny word. So even if we become girlfriend and boyfriend I say we don’t use words like that, what about you? Now if it was a word like Geronimo it’d be cool. Maybe we will say I Geronimo you and you Geronimo me.

And when you come to play we could also use the TV to watch Swat Kats and have a drink or 2 (if you could bring pancakes it will be double great). It would be hard to drive my big brother away but if we both stand together I don’t think he will stand a chance. He is 100 pounds and I am 70. I have not mastered my Math yet so I couldn’t give you the exact figure but I guess a 50 from you should do it.

So little kid, you don’t have to wait for lucky charms to work anymore. Grab your gloves and that rubber ball and fly over to my place, 3rd house on this side of the street.

Lots of Geronimo,

The boy who wrote all this above
