Dear Mary,
Oliver “Shiny” Blakemore

Well, I’ve been going over this response to my response to you for a couple of days and trying to decide if I was being insulted by you for referencing Depeche Mode or you genuinely appreciated the comment. It can be difficult to discern in text without context.

For the record the song referenced opened my brain to things that most people would prefer to ignore.

That said; I have decided to believe that your comment was not sarcastic nor an attempted insult. So thank you. I hope to read much more writing from you in the future.

Your sincerely
