Dear Rubiescorner, interlude

Dear Ruby @ rubiescorner.wordpress.com,

My name is Madison Berger-Henry-Joones, P.H.d and I represent a Mr. J.B. Basketweaver-Freuffleton. My client is an admirer of your writing and has paid me considerable amounts of money to request that I send a letter concerning a matter of utmost importance concerning how you are conducting your blogs, rubiesjewels.wordpress.com and rubiesadvice.wordpress.com.

Both blogs, though insightful and entertaining, are being sent to the wrong address via Facebook. Therefore my client Mr. Basketweaver-Freuffleton requests that you please edit where the blog posts are being shared so they go to your own account. The request is made not because he is offended, but so you can take the credit for your own work.

Thank you for your time and consideration in reading this. Should you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reply.

Sincerely,

Madison Berger-Henry-Joones, p.h.d.

— from a letter addressed to my mother on June 25, 2018. The recipients of the letter, and their lawyers, have since made an about-face and are now following her blog, rubiescorner.wordpress.com.

Ode to Selfish People, interlude

To Mr. Dehydrated Orange, who, years ago, out of randomness, sent me a hateful note, turned out to be the jealous, crazy ex of the cute girl I met on Facebook once upon a time, back in a time when they didn’t have the anti-bullying policies they have today…or he would have never sent that note:

…It wasn’t that there’s something wrong with me, or that I’m soft, or that I’m cowardly. I tried to be nice, and there’s no point in arguing with ignorant people.

–from “Ode to Selfish People, Where Are You Today?” by Arthur Donovan “Cufflinks” Springs-Meyer, published by Morning Thoughtful Golfclub Press, Topeka, Kansas 2016.
