Some men may not have a clue when it comes to what women want, but some boys sure do. Take this viral letter from Reddit, penned (ok, transcribed verbatim by mom, Jennifer) from four-year-old Bennet to the object of his young affection, Baily.
This Dad's Note To His Son Will Bring You To Tears
The kid's got poetry and verse that will make Shakespeare roll in his grave. Take note, Jeopardy! This is how you charm the preschool set:
"Will you please come to my house? Let's play together. I think you are pretty like a horse or a ladybug. I'm not sure which," said the budding Romantic.
"You should come to my house and eat cheeses with me. I love you and I lost a tooth last night. I think I would like to do a magic trick for you and then let you watch me battle robots."
Sounds like a date. Really, who in her right mind could turn down an offer of magic tricks and nibbling on "cheeses?" But the heart strings get tugged even harder once you learn that Bennet has had cancer ever since he was a six-month-old baby. His family hopes for a clean bill of health on his next checkup.
Apparently the scribe is a character who splits his mom's sides daily. As for Baily, well, thus far she hasn't noticed him. And an appearance on Ellen can never hurt. Just ask this kid.
A career at Hallmark is on the cards, methinks. Meantime, come Valentine's Day, men all over the world will be looking to Cyrano de Bennet for cues.
