February 18, 2014 THE SECRET ADMIRER NOTE I WROTE FOR MARCY! Remember how I decided to write a secret admirer note for Marcy? I wanted to make her feel good since she felt super bummed out when MacKenzie found a secret admirer note in her locker and then called us both pathetic dorks. I kept the letter short and sweet…just like her! I wrote: Dear Marcy, Roses are red, violets are blue, I’m glad you’re my friend. I admire you! Signed, Your Secret Admirer I stayed late at school on Thursday so I could get it in her locker in time for her to find it on Valentine’s day. The next morning, I hid in the bathroom near her locker so I could poke my head out and watch her find the note. At first, she looked super sad because a few of the lockers near hers were decorated with pink ribbons, red balloons, and stuff. (Seriously, it was like a Valentine’s Day piñata exploded!) But when she opened her locker and the note fell out, she lit up like a Christmas tree. It was SO cute to watch! After that, she was super psyched all day…even when she walked into lunch carrying a test with a B on it (which usually bums her out, since she likes to get all A’s). She skipped over, gave me a huge hug, and said, “You know what’s even better than having a secret admirer?” I asked, “What?” And she said, “Having a really good friend who would write a secret admirer note to make me feel better! Well, it worked. This made me feel SO happy! Thank you Nikki!” I was totally surprised that she knew I wrote it, so I asked, “How did you know it was me?” And she said, “You’re my good friend! I’d recognize your handwriting anywhere.” I’m SO glad I was able to cheer her up! Marcy’s an awesome friend to me, and it’s super important for me to be the same for her! If you were going to write a secret admirer note, who would you write it to and what would it say? Give me your best silly ‘roses are red’ poems!
