Photo 365 #21

Can you believe I’ve been at this for three whole weeks already?  Neither can I.

Anyway, I was struggling to come up with a good idea for today’s photo post.  But after I put the boys down for their nap, I went out to check the mail.  Hidden among the various bills and other junk mail was this:

Last (school) year, Bubbles’ class did a project where they wrote a letter to their favorite authors.  At first, Bubbles wanted to write to me (cuz he’s a sweet boy), but his teacher told him that he had to choose another author, so he chose JK Rowling (big Harry Potter fans, we are).  I’d actually kind of forgotten about it till today.

I suspect that when he gets home, he’ll be a mite disappointed.  I mean, how cool would it have been to get a letter back from JK Rowling?  Still, even this returned letter will be a nice keepsake.  Someday he can look back at it and have a glimpse of the boy he used to be, a carefree, happy boy who loved football and reading.

And who knows?  Perhaps someday I’ll get to go to a conference or convention of some awesome sort and I’ll bump into her and not make a fool of myself when recounting this story, and maybe he’ll get his return letter then.

What?  It could happen. 🙂

    That’s a shame that Rowling didn’t receive his letter. I wouldn’t expect a reply, of course, but she should be able to receive fan mail, shouldn’t she? I hope you welcome fan mail from your readers 😉

      I had the same thought – I wasn’t holding my breath that he’d get a response, but it’s disappointing that it never even made it to her (or someone on her behalf) in the first place.

      As for me, I am all about the fan mail. If I ever get any, I’ll be sure to roll about in it the way Scrooge McDuck swims through his money bin. 🙂
