The Letter I Wish I Received

Dear Elementary Pupils,

Please don’t take your Math lessons lightly. Pay careful attention to your teacher when he’s teaching you how to solve the freaking fractions which you thought aren’t as important as knowing how to divide a pizza among hungry friends. Don’t ignore the lessons you learned about how to convert fractions to decimals and percentage or vice versa when you reach the age when you think dollar conversion is of much importance. Don’t neglect your lessons on how to calculate your father’s age and/or the average of you and your siblings’ ages because they make sense in building relationships, really. Don’t discard your memory of how you solved the measure of distance and speed of a vehicle when you’re at the point of your life wherein all you wanted is how to own a car and break the speed limit.
