“What if I just told her I think she’s cute. Wouldn’t a girl like to hear that?”

But how???

thanks Tom, I KNOW it’s the hardest part

Hello Alden, we have forwarded your letter onto Wendy. Good luck.

I went to work the next day living in a new reality.

A reality that I had managed to get a letter to a cute girl on the other side of the country.

But, as often happens, what I thought would be, was not.

“Hi, I’m John (it’s my middle name so I wasn’t lying — yet), from Olmsted University in California… yes, hi I’m trying to reach Ms. Wendy Hayes, she is interested in attending our college in the fall. She attends high school in Lexington right?”
