To RoseArt Crayons,
Who exactly do you think you are? And what is this waxy product you are trying to pass off as a crayon? The color is weak. It easily breaks. I'm trying to teach my daughter how to read the colors, and you call purple "violet". This is confusing to her young mind.
Crayons have been around for a long time. Do you not have scientists that can melt down the Crayola, figure out how they make it, and make your crayons as good? Apparently not. Or you are just lazy.
You may fool new parents. And well meaning people buying crayons for the children of their friends and trying to save a few pennies. But you can't fool me. I scoff at your "crayons." I walk right by them in the store. And I grab me a box of the good stuff. The Crayolas. I'm a big spender, shelling out those extra pennies for the real deal. Because only the best will do for my coloring book.
I mean my daughter's coloring book. (Have you seen her artwork? It's on blogs all over the world now - thanks to a certain nice little button)
RoseArt, you have been rejected.
This post is the last in the September Monday Missions. Today's mission is to write a post in the from of a rejection letter. To participate, just add a link to your post in the widget below. In October the Missions will be hosted by The Flying Mum. This is next week's mission: "Congratulations! You are a top executive at a breakout new cable TV company. TV Guide wants to publish a sampling of your new fall lineup. For this post, please provide them with a description of some of the new shows."
I hope to keep up with them, as they've been a lot of fun for me (although I must confess, there have been some weeks I wouldn't have done it if I weren't hosting it! Hosting it makes me do it even when I feel uninspired, and I think that was good for me. So I may try to think of it as a homework commitment. I was always pretty good about turning in homework on time, but then I've been out of school for 11 years, so maybe not so much anymore? We'll see!)
