HI uncle Chris (typed by Robbie)
So my sister-in-law Cindy was checking her e-mail and Robbie was there and she told him that I had sent her an e-mail and he wanted to say hi to me. And, so, I replied:
...then there was this in my e-mail inbox this morning:
I miss you
from robbie (typed by Robbie)
*touches fingers to lips; blinks; looks away from the screen for a moment*
I replied as best I could:
I miss you, too, Robbie.
I'm looking forward to seeing you and your family again sometime.
Robbie's a sweet kid. Eric's a sweet kid, but in a more playful, toy-with-you way; Robbie's much more direct in his affection. He was my buddy during my vacation.
So when will we hang out again?
