Esteban the Magnificent here...formerly known as PEA GREEN CRAYON...we don't talk about that though, such an unfortunate color name!
I mean really, PEA GREEN?
Kids hate peas!
Who wants to color with their least favorite food?
Oh...and poor MAROON CRAYON, lost beneath the sofa cushions, just tragic!
And BURNT SIENNA CRAYON...chewed up and spit out by the dog...EWWWWW!
Not to mention TURQUOISE CRAYON...tumbled dry, low!!! The horror!
I recently heard that the Original 12, and you know who you are, almost QUIT!
Can you imagine, crayons quitting? It's back to school time!
Well, they did, and you, Duncan, listened.
I hear the Original 12 have it better than ever now.
Well, we're special too, we're the CRAYON CLASSIC COLOR PACK - 64 COUNT, with sharpener in the back!
There might be a lot of us, but that doesn't mean you can do with us as you please, we have feelings too you know, and we want to come home.
The world can be a cold hard place for a lone crayon.
So Duncan, if you're reading this, remember there's more to life than RED, BLUE and GREEN, we're here for you too, buddy.
We just want to come home (AUGUST 18th, if you'll have us),
Esteban the Magnificent (aka PEA GREEN)
