I’m so glad it resonated with you! I really appreciate that you took the time to pay a compliment and offer your support against the “critics of fun.”
Whenever a commenter makes a reasonable point — and makes it politely — I’ll always offer the most honest and thoughtful response I can. Some comments, though, I just don’t know how to respond. Imagine if I was giving a public talk, and at the end I said, “Okay, let’s open the floor for questions,” and this guy in the audience just raised his hand, said, “Twat,” and walked out. Actually, that’d be really funny. Anyway, that’s life on the Internet for you.
And yes, I think familiarity can always breed contempt, even in the most comfortable places. Not everyone wants to travel the world, but everyone needs some variety now and then.
Thanks for reading!
