We are reading Mr. Friend's memoir, Cheerful Money, which concerns itself with the author's old-family "WASP" connections and how they all came together to create the interesting man, and the very good writer, he is today.
We're enjoying it very much; it's a good book, well-written, and deserving of your attention. But we've also reached the point in the story where we feel we have to get this off our chest:
Yes, Tad, we believe you.
Yes, you needn't go on about it anymore.
YES, TAD, IT IS ABSOLUTELY, POSITIVELY INCREDIBLE TO US, AS IT SEEMS TO BE TO YOU, THAT YOU EVER, EVEN ONCE IN YOUR LIFE, GOT LAID!!!!!!!
Because it seems to be so immensely necessary for him to know that we know this.
