Hi. Roger Rabbit. It has been a long time since I wrote a letter to you.
Sadly, this is my last letter.
More than two years and a half ago, you entered my life and enlightened it with your smile, your crazy antics, and your cheerful way of living your own life. At that time, I really needed you. I was at some hard moment in my own life, and I desperately needed a role model. Someone that inspired me to achieve better things, and helped me to improve what was wrong with me.
Now I’m a very different person, thanks to you. You’ve shown me how much a smile worth. How much can simple practical jokes and bad puns help us to keep going ahead. How much are you committed to your own goal, that’s making people laugh. At any cost. Even risking your own life. You’ve shown me how to be a little kid again.
But now, it’s time to say goodbye to you.
Your goal was accomplished on me. Now I can smile to anyone, even to people that quite don’t understand me, or criticize me. Now I know when pull out some joke for making people laugh, even for making myself laugh. Now I’m very committed to my own goal, which is the daily improvement of my abilities, for helping people around me to be happy and satisfied with my work. And, of course, having my own family and kids.
You did it quite right, Roger Rabbit, and I really thank you for all your help and all the laughs I got from you. Now, it’s time to move on to bigger things… Without you.
What I really mean is: you’re now part of my life. You’ll always live in my place, in my office, in my car… But also you’ll be living in my soul, in my mind and in my heart. You’re now part of my happiness. But I can’t rely on you every time I have some issues at work, in home or in my personal life. I can’t let you to take all the sadness out of me, without helping you in such task. You can’t keep taking all the damage I’ve done to you when I felt desperate, in anger, or just disappointed with the whole world.
I can’t rely my whole happiness to you. I need to do it on my own.
So… Thanks for all the good moments, Roger Rabbit. My sweet little bunny. Thanks also for those weird antics, and for the bad moments we’ve lived together. Everything was part of our mutual life, but right now I need to move away from you, get on my own red pants with suspenders, tie my own polka-dotted bow, and grow my own pair of floppy ears. I need to become a full fledged adult, and take the command of my own life. I can’t keep living through you, living behind your shadow, because that’s not fair to you and me. Instead I’d like to live my own quirky antics, having you as my goofy sidekick. Of course, if you want it.
Well… You know it, Roger Rabbit. This is the end of the road. The epilogue. The Grand Finale. But I really thank you from the deep of my heart for all the fun, the laughs, the smiles and, of course, the hope you gave me through those late years. Just I wanted you to know that:
I love you Roger Rabbit. I really, REALLY love you. And I’ll never forget you.
Farewell, sweet rabbit :’)
Don’t worry fellas! I’ll keep running Toontown Antics and updating this journal with the latest news about Roger Rabbit and his pals. I just needed to do this, and move ahead in my own life. After all, Roger Rabbit is already part of me, and will be forever =3
