One time, there was a pretty young girl named Patty. She was walking home from school; her bus just dropped her off. “What a long day,” she thought, and she saw a small piece of paper on the ground with the word “Dear” visible. Patty picked up the note and read it while continuing to walk – she was in a hurry to get home, trying to get a sugar cookie for a chore she had been thinking of all day. The letter read:
I am happy you are my boyfriend. I like the candy you give me; my friends think you are cool. One day, you can work for my daddy and buy a car. I am glad we are ‘going together’. I love you.
“I know of a Penelope,” thought Patty, “She is in the grade above me. I will have to bring this note to her tomorrow – I wonder if it is the same person. We could be friends, one day, if she is a nice person.”
Patty returned home in good time and took out all of the trash in her house. Her mother would return at any minute – she was sure to be allowed to eat at least one nice, fluffy sugar cookie.
