This made me cry a little bit (a lot)

Lil Wil

Not so Lil Wil

TBTL Ten Jaime posted this to her tumblr account, and while reading it, I started to cry by the sweet and heartfelt gesture by Wil Wheaton.

So it seems that 8-year-old Teresa Juniso applied to be in the Wil Wheaton fan club, known as "WilPower". She never got a response from Wil until 21 years later when 36-year-old Wil invited now 29-year-old Teresa to the club and sent her the following letter:

According to The Daily What, here's Teresa's comment from the letter:
He gets a big thank you from Twenty-Nine Year Old Me. Don’t get me wrong. Eight Year Old Me is very, very pleased. But Twenty-Nine Year Old Me better knows the importance of a kind gesture, and hopes that her gratitude carries more weight.

You can read the full article here. HOW ADORABLE IS THAT? What a nice guy move on Wil Wheaton's part. His interview on TBTL about his nerdy background and love of D&D, where he starts to get audibly emotional recounting how a gift of the D&D rules made him a better person and gave him imagination, is definitely memorable.

Wil, high five to you today.
