How about for tonight we go with a very cute letter I got last week from a kid in Japan:
Without writing for a long time, I am sorry. The English is difficult. A present of Christmas was verry happy. Thank you for not forgetting our thing. I give thanks, I could meet you a thing. USA is a distant country, but feels that a heart is connected. Winter of New York will be to be very cold. We are terribly afraid for influenza, too. Spring is long in coming. I hope to meet you some day. Please in vigour. Please excuse my poor English. I will write to you again. You are always in my thoughts.It's damn cute, isn't it? And who can argue? Spring is long in coming. I think her English is so good and it beats the shit out of my Japanese. This is from one of my cutie pies. She's about ten, and there were a few pictures of her with a dog the size of a hamster in the envelope. Top ten favorite things in life: mail from Japan.
