Could it be that this kid actually is using his dictionary?? Was I being over-cynical? What do you think?

Maybe I’ll never know.

Wow, that was unexpected! Write him back! Having a pen pal will help him improve his writing, if nothing else. If he asks for money, and hopefully he won't, then give advice or politely decline or whatever feels right to you.

Yay for being proved wrong--at least about one?
