The fruit basket,
21st June, 2020
I hope this letter finds you in a “ripe” state of health. I had visited your home earlier, to get a bar of chocolate, and happened to catch a glimpse of you. As always, the sight of you got me salivating, and I started thinking of ways to use (aka eat) you.
I saw you sitting gracefully among your brethren, and, to be honest, you looked pretty content with life. So, I was wondering if you could do me a favour. Could you please, please ask your other friends and cousins to be ripe, succulent and tasty with beautiful shades on their skins? I plan on surprising my mom and dad tomorrow with mango shake, and some ripe mangoes would certainly benefit the plan.
Please do consider my request, and I promise to add some extra sugar to you, to make your entire family more adored. Say hello to your friends from me!
