Hi Auntie. You don't know me, but I'm James. Uh... You can call me Jimmy, Jim, Andy, or Harry if you like. Whatever works for you. Oh Uh... I'm James Andrew Harrison Kinney.
Um anyway... I kinda have a favor to ask, if you can't do it I'll understand.
Er, anyway... Uh my girlfriend lost all her pets this year, and she's real sad. And you're a great artist. If I can get you pictures of them, and supplies, do you think you could paint them for me? I know this is a little late notice, but I just came up with it today.
Even if you can't I still love you.
You're the only one that doesn't refer to me as the mailman's kid.
