Post #2670 – 20101217

Dear Mr. Pinkwater,

I would like to thank you for all of your wonderful stories. My favorite has always been “The Snarkout Boys and the Avocado of Death.” I think reading it during my formative years had quite an effect on me. Fourteen years and many rereadings later, and I’m still emulating Rat. Except for the hair. I don’t have the right skin coloring for green-tinged blonde.

Anyway, every time I eat an avocado, I send out a little mental thank you to you. I figured I would send one in writing as well!

Best wishes,

Everyone who reads your post will be wondering, ""What IS the right skin coloring for green-tinged blonde?"" Thanks for liking stuff I wrote. I hope that includes the recent novels--I think I'm starting to get a technique together.
