Dear little girl who told me I was pretty

15 Apr

Dear little girl in the back seat of the van in drive thru who told me I was pretty,

Thank you. You made my day. The memory has made my day many times over the past three and a half years. I’ve never really thought of myself as pretty or that anyone else would think of me as pretty, so you thinking I was and saying so was really unexpected and heartwarming. I’m sorry I didn’t respond more appropriately than telling you that you were pretty too and asking what your name was. I feel like that really trampled the innocence and genuineness of your comment. I’m also sorry that I didn’t remember your name–you’d think I’d remember something like that. You really are pretty though, especially on the inside. I’ll never forget you.

And tell your mom I said thanks, too, for rolling down your window.

K.S.
