Dear Jack: You Dressed Up as a Character From the “I Survived” Books

10 years, 3 months.

Dear Jack,

Yesterday, your school had a fun theme where the students got to dress as a character from one of their favorite books.

You asked me, “Daddy, what can I dress up as?”

I looked in your closet, and found an old newsie hat that I gave to you a few years ago.

This week I’ve been reading an “I Survived” book to you, that your cousin gave you.

I said, “You know, most of these books take place during a time when boys wore hats like this one.”

Therefore, you got away with wearing a hat at school all day.

And funny enough, no one even asked you who you were dressed up as.
