how not to accept the gift of Medium

Sweetie, I apologize for my initial reaction upon learning you bought me a Medium membership. (I guess it could best be described as unappreciative, rude and WTF.)

There are many writers I truly enjoy here and reading them will now earn them huge amounts of cash. That should more than make up for all the guilting I used to get them to print their stories and mail to me first-class because, as you and I know, you can’t beat reading on paper.

Thank you for the gift of top-rate entertainment

and unlimited trolling of all other “authors.”
