Dear Mr. Postman

As earlier reported, TinyTuna has now discovered the joys of email. It's become a somewhat convenient way to communicate during lunch or before or after school.

Sometimes the emails are about school itself
Dear Mother,
Today was great! We had science and then gym. You won't believe it but I ran a 10 min. jog today with everyone else, and I did the whole thing without walking. How cool is that! I also in orchestra got the fancy part for the piece I have played for you. The last thing is a little disappointing. I didn't get typing class, but I got Sing It, See It, and our first songs are from the Music Man. How double cool is that!! I hope you had a good day too.

Love your daughter,

Sometimes the emails are apologies for, well, being 11
Dear Mom,

How are you today? I am SO SORRY about what happened this morning, and if their is anyway I can make it up to you I will. I hope you will forgive me for my attitude.

And sometimes the emails are for "just because"
Dear Mother,

How are you today? I asked about the book a few days ago and it is $5.00. I can pay for it. I would like to know how your day is going now and I love you very much!


So this morning, when my email box binged, you wouldn't be surprised to hear that I stampeded to my inbox to see what kind of warm and fuzzy thoughts were sent my way today.

This was my reward:
Dear Mom,
There is no library after school today. More news of the day a kid in our hallway just barfed up a pile. EWE!


It's hard to decide what I like the best about the whole email: the fact that she felt so compelled as to take time out of her busy morning and share this wonderful piece of information, or the fact that she can't spell EWWWWW. Whatever it is, The TinyTuna News has managed to sum up a lifetime of Mondays to perfection, and all before 10 am.

What a kid.
