A little boy’s adorable letter to his classmate has gone viral, thanks to his straightforward approach—and the awesome comparisons he uses to describe his lady love’s beauty. Take note guys, because this is definitely the right way to ask a pretty lady for a date.
His mother Jennifer Skinner, told Buzzfeed the letter is entirely in four-year-old Bennet’s own words—she just transcribed it onto paper.
The letter reads:
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. 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.
Jennifer explained when she asked Bennet who he wanted to send a letter to his response was “Baily, of course.”
She said that he talks constantly about Baily and her “yellow hair.”
“Of course Baily is a bit awkward at just four years old and really doesn’t know what to think about Bennet. Honestly, I think he overwhelms her a bit,” said Jennifer.
His mother said the sudden popularity of the letter online, and the well wishes it has brought in from around the world has been a huge boost for the family. She explained that Bennet was diagnosed with cancer when he was six months old, and is due for one of his last cancer checks soon.
She said the buzz about his love letter has been a welcome distraction from the nerves regarding his check up.
Bennet, you had us at “eat cheeses with me.”
