I got an email today that said
"The reason I really enjoy your blog is that you write in such a conversational style, without every word having to be oh-so-thoughtful and filled with pretty flowing phrases that are no doubt 'borrowed' from something read somewhere else."
Dear New Friend,
Thank you for the utterly lovely compliment. And it's true, I am neither thoughtful nor do I know very many pretty phrases.
Do come visit anytime, and you don't even need to call first.
Yes, I'm totally easy and can be had for a compliment. You don't even have to buy me dinner first.
