Artist and author Allie Brosh wrote letters to younger versions of herself in her new book, including a letter to herself when she was at the bewildering age of thirteen years old.
What would you write in a letter to your younger self? Bosh published Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate Situations, Flawed Coping Mechanisms, Mayhem, and Other Things That Happened this month.
Here’s an excerpt from Brosh’s letter to her thirteen year old self, written in her signature style:
I think everyone was relieved when you started to grow out of your unhealthy obsession with dogs. Unfortunately, now you think you are a wizard. I know this because I found your collection of spells. Tell me, how does mixing Dijon mustard with sand and then eating it make someone love you?
Full Disclosure: This GalleyCat editor will publish a book with Touchstone, Brosh’s publisher.
