To: Delta Airlines, From: Sad Kindle
Dear Delta Airlines,
My name is Non-Mommy's Kindle and I am very sad. You see, my obviously VERY blonde owner lost me. She was so excited to take me to Europe with her! I would be oh, so handy. Of course, I was excited to go! Who doesn't want to go to Europe?! Non-Mommy happily loaded me up with books, and off we went. The flight was pleasant, but being a red-eye, Non-Mommy got tired. She then foolishly put me, along with her glasses case, into the POCKET OF DEATH. I tried to warn her, oh how I tried. But I'm not alive, so she didn't get my message.
After a most delightful flight experience, we landed. Non-Mommy is a huge Anglophile, so she was very happy to have landed. After all, she did see British license plates out the window, and that set her off in a tizzy. Through no fault of yours, she was very tired. She was so concerned about getting her things out of the overhead compartment and getting off of that plane that she left me behind! On an international flight! Being very young, I mean, new, she didn't even arrange for me to fly as an unaccompanied minor! Hrmph!
I don't really want to tell you what happened to me next. It isn't for the faint at heart. I just know, in my heart of hearts, that Non-Mommy very quickly made the discovery of my abandonment. She filled out the online form, and even called the airline. It was only a matter of hours since she had left me. And yet, I am still not in her loving, yet irresponsible hands.
The thing is, Delta, no one has attempted to register me in a different name. No one tried to purchase new books using the credit card that is on file for me. So, this makes my very regretful Non-Mommy think that I am possibly in a box somewhere. I may not be alive, but using my psychic powers, I am guessing that Non-Mommy wonders if I have just been forgotten somewhere, not stolen.
What I do know is that Non-Mommy is ever so sorry that she left me. She knows that this was a really big mistake on her part, and that you, Delta, have no obligation to try and reunite us. I know from my time on your lovely flights that your flight attendants were very pleasant and kind. I heard that your food was even decently good. In fact, I think, if my mind reading abilities are correct, that Non-Mommy was very pleased with her international flight experience with you.
Please. Help reunite me with Non-Mommy. I would be ever so grateful, as I know she would be as well.
And also, maybe sew those horrible pockets shut!
Lots of love,
White Kindle in a purple floral Javon Edge case
PS - Her pink Candies glasses case would like to be reunited, too!
