A Milestone

Let it be noted that on this day the first of my godchildren and first of my namesakes is turning 18. The other kids are following his example with unseemly haste. Soon, everyone I know will be grown up.

Will is a perfectly charming fellow, and I’m immensely pleased with the way he’s turned out. After careful deliberation, I have recorded my thoughts and impressions on the occasion of his majority, in a rigorously structured three-paragraph essay; I hope you’ll indulge a proud godfather by reading further.

Paragraph 1:

Paragraph 2:

Paragraph 3:

That about sums it up. Thank you for reading. And happy birthday, Will.

With love, Uncle Bill
