Dear Kid,

Last night was a wonderful night. Not only did we go see Holiday in Lights in Sharon Woods (right before it closed for the season), we finally got to see the Minion Movie.

(Yes, you’d seen it before, but I hadn’t and isn’t that what this is all about?)

My two Most Wonderful Children arranged for us to watch the Minion Movie as a (very) early birthday present for me.

I have great kids.

And I am so thrilled with having seen the movie that I am providing you Fantastic Facts About Minions:

  1. In Despicable Me, the Minions’ teeth are slightly crooked, while in Despicable Me 2, they are aligned. Orthodontists all over the world are thrilled.
  2. There are only 5 natural hairstyles for Minions in the Despicable Me films, including bald. Hairstylists all over the world are suggesting options.
  3. Minions have only three fingers. More digits might be fatal. To someone. Probably not a Minion.
  4. Minions speak a mixture of Spanish, English, French, and Italian, with bit of Russian and Korean sprinkled in. Each word in Minion has an exact translation. So far, Minion (the language) cannot be taken for college credit.
  5. The evil Minions are purple because purple and yellow are on opposite sides of the color spectrum. Graphic designers all over the world figured that out before the rest of us.
  6. The average Minion stands at 105cm in height. But there is a pretty dang significant height differential among Minions and we don’t tolerate short jokes at DearKidLoveMom (unless they are really, really funny).
  7. Cool Minion Fact: Bob suffers from heterochromia iridum, making his eyes two different colors. He’s adorable no matter what color his eyes are.
  8. Cooler Minion Fact: The British Royal Crown from Bob’s “coronation” can briefly be seen in Despicable Me when the Minions all offer treasures to help fund Gru’s attempt to steal the moon.
  9. Coolest Minion Fact: Kevin, Stuart, and Bob were designed to resemble Gru’s daughters (Margo, Agnes, and Edith).
  10. Best Minion Fact: There is a 3rd Despicable Me movie coming! Guess what I’ll be doing in 2017?

Thank you again for a fabulous evening.


Love, Mom
