I’m writing to you to ask you if you would like to meet me briefly (coffee? hard liquor?) just so we can move beyond the Awkwardness. I think we both have distorted views of each other. Since our paths cross quite frequently, and we have some mutual friends, it seems like the thing to do.
Again I’m really sorry about the Unity Books letter and card, it honestly didn’t even occur to me how it might be misinterpreted. Which makes me at the very least insensitive and thoughtless. I’m sorry I haven’t really talked to you since, it’s just I thought it would be best to leave you be.
In conclusion: our mothers agree, why can’t we?
ps: my mum’s phrase for this sort of thing is “to queer one’s pitch”, lol.
