Harry and The Love Letter

May 6, 2013

H is two.  He’ll be three on Wednesday.  I really thought that uninvited attention from girls wouldn’t be a problem until, oh, at least the age of 14 when spots and lack of washing would then buy us at least another 3 or 4 years and, by that time, he’d be off at university.   I thought wrongly.

On Saturday afternoon we were at the party of one of his little friends who was turning 2.  They live on a house in the main part of Islamabad and, as is the norm here, have a guard who sits at the front of the house and helps me park the tractor when we go to visit.  I don’t think that that’s the main thrust of his job, but it’s jolly helpful. Anyway, between getting H out of the paddling pool and the birthday cake arriving the guard came up the drive waving this letter:


Alysha, it transpired, lives next door to our friends.  She is 10, met H once a month or so ago and has had a photo of him on her wall ever since. She heard the party going on and recognised H’s voice.  So she wrote him a letter. She is very sweet with him though and, for the moment, I approve.  

I’m going to have to keep an eye on H though.  When I took him up to bed that night I asked him who his girlfriend was.  His answer: I love the one I met today.  There speaks a true lothario.
