Dear Mr. Pinkwater,

My name is Brandon Pittman and I am a 7th grader in Greensboro, NC. I have been assigned a research paper on an author and I chose you. Would you please e-mail so I can include it in my report. It doesn’t really have to say anything because I have researched you thoroughly and do not want to invade your privacy with questions. Say Hi to Jill (Mrs. Pinkwater – sorry). Is your dog okay?

Thank you,

Brandon Pittman

PS – My report is due tomorrow. Sorry the teacher only gave us a week and I broke my arm and wrist this week in a wrestling match.

Daniel replies:

Hello, Brandon Pittman. Jill says hello too. The dogs are more than ok. I am delighted, gratified, and impressed that you did thorough research. Congratulations, Brandon Pittman. You are clearly an outstanding person, and I am honored to be the subject of your research paper.

Daniel Pinkwater

P.S. Sorry about the arm. And the wrist. Consider another sport. Bullfighting, for example.
