Perhaps the best apology in the history of the second grade. Largely because it incorporates a haiku. This was sent to my daughter, Grace, from her classmate, Owen, after he very publicly proclaimed that she has “buck teeth”.

Actual text reads thusly:

To Grace:

I’m very sorry for what I said about you having buck teeth. I know this will never happen again. Here is a haiku to show that I care.

I’m very sorry.
I’ll hope that you’ll forgive me.
This is how I care.  

Your friend, 
Owen

Owen was immediately forgiven, and Grace now keeps the note in her jewelry box. Excellent work, Owen.
