Dear Melanie,

Love the helpful article, taking notes. I, too, do none of those things. Wait, I didn’t put enough hysteria into my tone. (Clears throat.) I, too, do NONE of those things, including staring into space after meals, hoping to look sufficiently write-y not to do the dishes. Also, I am not delusional, the same way the Joker was not crazy.

Pretentious? Moi? 🧐 I need the monocle to see.
