This is a true story. I was reading the Norton Anthology of Children's Literature and got weepy about Frog and Toad. Specifically, the following passage:
Frog looked out the window.
The snail was still not there.
"Frog, why do you keep looking
out of the window?" asked Toad.
"Because now I am waiting
for the mail," said Frog.
"But there will not be any," said Toad.
"Oh, yes there will," said Frog,
"because I have sent you a letter."
"You have?" said Toad.
"What did you write in the letter?"
Frog said, "I wrote
'Dear Toad, I am glad
that you are my best friend.
Your best friend, Frog.'"
"Oh," said Toad,
"that makes a very good letter."
Look, these past few months have been pretty rough, y'all.
If you enjoy the work I do here, consider chipping into my Patreon! It helps a lot. Alternatively, I've got an Amazon wishlist exclusively for Lit Brick material, if you'd like to support the comic in other ways. Thanks!
