Most children have the ability to exercise their imaginations to a more profound degree than their adult counterparts. Take, for instance, Flint, a fourth-grade student from Texas who was so impressed with a local weatherman who came to visit his school that he wrote an insanely-descriptive “thank you” letter. In it, he mentioned bacon, a tuxedo-wearing monkey, a cyborg unicorn and plenty more.
“You’re more awesome than a monkey wearing a tuxedo made out [of] bacon riding a cyborg unicorn,” the young boy wrote to KVUE’s Albert Ramon. “Some day when I become supreme ultra-Lord of the universe, I will not make you a slave, you will live in my 200 story castle where unicorn servants will feed you doughnuts off their horns.”
Pretty descriptive for a fourth-grader, no? Here’s a picture of the note:
See, Flint was apparently so captivated by Ramon and the lesson the Austin-based meteorologist gave at his school that he even drew pictures to accompany his note. Here’s an image of Ramon sitting on a throne and being offered doughnuts by — you guessed it — a unicorn:
On his Twitter account, Ramon confirmed that the letter is real and that it did, indeed, come from Flint. He was apparently so impressed with the accolades showed upon him, that the meteorologist posted the letter on his Facebook page. Now, it’s making its way around the blogosphere:
Considering the note’s descriptive nature and Flint’s ability to exercise his imagination, the child could one day find himself with a career in creative writing.
