More Than Good Hair

Well some say life
Will beat you down
Break your heart
Steal your crown

So I started out
For God-knows-where
I guess I’ll know
When I get there

I’m learning to fly
Around the clouds
What goes up
(Learnin’ to fly)
Must come down

I’m learnin’ to fly
(Learnin’ to fly)
But I ain’t got wings
Comin’ down
Is the hardest thing
--Tom Petty, Learnin’ to Fly

Ethan furrowed his brow as he wondered what sentences were right to use and what words were good to work with as he stared at the blank piece of paper in front of him. The letter he had planned to write began with “Dear Lizzie”, but that was all he had gotten so far.

Darn it! I dislike getting writer’s block at a time like this, he thought to himself. I’ve got to think of a good way to describe my problem on paper and without sounding like a total oddball, too.

Then, as though a burst of inspiration hit him, Ethan’s eyes lit up, and he grinned. Ah! Now there’s a good way to do it. I’ll just say it like it really is.

So he picked up his pencil and got to work. Then, he put it next to his laptop and began typing a copy of the letter in an email that he would send to Lizzie.

Dear Lizzie,
People think that I’m not very bright. They think I’m just a pretty face. How can I get looks beyond my “looks”?
Signed,
More Than Good Hair

After looking over the email a bit to see if there were any mistakes he needed to clear up (which there weren’t), Ethan then let a smile of cool satisfaction cross his handsome visage as he clicked ‛Send’.
