You be the judge. Here’s a thank you note he wrote to his parents for his birthday last week. Note subject matter*.
*In case you can’t read his writing I’ll translate here:
Dear Mom and Dad,
Thanks for the birthday card and money. I will spend it on something fun. Is it warm in the house? This was a good year to have the coal stove. I’ll see you in a little bit at Christmas.
All he needs to do is mention his latest ailment and he’s on his way to being a senior citizen!
