I saw the video of him offering to write the note and thought it was adorable. And amazing that he was able to write the note (not that it was all complicated or anything) and be able to respond to the father's question. I can't do that lol.

I thought it was cute too. It would make a great starting point for a child's fiction book I think... I can think of all sorts of scenarios to go along with this to make a book out of - could be fun!
