Dear Mr. Pinkwater,

I thought you might like to know that your name is a verb now, as in

“Honey, do you want some of this avocado?”

“Did you Pinkwater it?”


“Hand it over.”

I have loved your work since 1981, when I was in sixth grade. Thank you, sir.

Holly K. Hein -- Does Pinkwatering an avocado mean putting it between two slices of whole grain bread with peanut butter, a slice of raw onion, and lots of hot sauce?
