For Elliot

Day 2

The Heights of Abraham look very high and the caverns very cavernous. Those rockets look fun too (remember never return to a lit rocket that hasn’t gone off, let someone else do that).

It’s been non-stop fun here as well. I woke up feeling so full of fun I had to go back to bed to sleep it off. Your brother went into town to get the word ‘fun’ tattooed on his forehead. Fat Bobs don’t usually do that sort of thing, but it was in black ink so they made an exception. Your mother has been having the most fun. At least I think that’s why she has started laughing hysterically. Ben says it’s because she can spend so much more time with me now you are on the school trip. He could be right. Jasper has been having fun too. He barks to go out and he barks to come in every five seconds. How we laugh.

This Jose Marinara bloke keeps phoning for you. Why would anyone name their son after a pizza topping? That would be like calling you Elliot Pepperoni – which funnily enough has a nice ring to it. Anyway, this Jose said he was the special one and wanted to give you a chance in goal for his new team. I told him that you can’t play on Saturdays because of your synchronised swimming class.

Keep smiling.
