One time, Aunt Katie sent Jake a postcard from Serendipity in NY.
Jake became obsessed with the place. And more specifically, the frozen hot chocolate.
One time, Jake stayed up way too late, and I yelled...uh...spoke loudly at him to turn off his light and go to bed. Then he handed me an incredibly sweet and witty letter he had been writing to his Aunt Katie about frozen hot chocolates. And the word serendipity. And how he wanted to be a librarian and have a huge library in NY. I kissed him goodnight, and we mailed the letter in the morning.
One time, soon after, Jake got a Serendipity Frozen Hot Chocolate in the mail. And it was the most yummiest happy discovery we've ever made!
Some time, I think I'll write Aunt Katie my own letter. I like Crumbs. And RicePuddnig.
