Model Essay

Dear Lily,
I am writing to ask for your help to take care of my kid – Tony, when I am on a business trip from next Monday to next Friday.
As you know, Tony has a fever for all sweet food, especially ice cream. But he is allowed to have it only once every two weeks because he has already got two bad teeth. Therefore, the whole next week he would have no chance to access sweets. Please show your mercy by being tough since he is very good at begging. Besides, he hates fruits but
he is really into fruit juice. I would appreciate it very much if you can make one cup of juice every day for him. By the way, I would buy those he likes and take them to your place later this weekend. Except for the above two things, Tony is a cute company and an easy-to-please boy that will bring you little trouble.

  Plus, he enjoys playing basketball very much, and I have noticed the basket in your backyard. That would be his playground where he can hang around after school. He sometimes would bring some other kids and play group basketball game. So make some rules when I am away. One-hour physical practice is adequate for a 7-year-old boy, or
he would make trouble in having a sound sleep at night by being too excited.

  I will pick him up on Friday next week. I’ll give you a call right after my landing off.
Thanks a lot for your help.
Love,
Mandy
