Dear Haydn,

Have you ever wondered what you would say to someone you've always wanted to meet when you finally get to meet them? Trust me, I have a ginormous list of people I can't wait to meet in the next life. Most of them consist of really cool dead royalty and composers. For instance, I want to ask Mozart what he was thinking when he wrote the D major concerto and stuck that high D right at the start for four measures. I need to know if Richard III was a killer or just wildly unlucky, although if it's the first I'm sure the chains from the underworld for murdering his nephews will be a dead give away... I also want to ask Bach if he's ever killed a kitten. However, today I decided what I will tell Haydn should I ever meet him.

Dear Haydn,
Thank you for writing symphonies. I like them a whole heck of a lot. Second, thank you for adding flutes into your symphonies. Finally, thank you for sounding distinctly like yourself. I probably will owe my passing of the first midterm in music history due to your original sound and your use of the flutes, since I can pick them out with one ear tied behind... oh never mind. Anyhow, way to write good music.
The end.
