Our Dulcet Christmas Wishes to You, Our Readers!
Why do we all love the Internet so much? Because it allows us to answer back! “Two-way communication” is, I believe, the technical term for this. Writers no longer talk to but with their readers, leading to proper and real conversations all over cyberspace. Isn’t that wonderful?
Some of you, however, have sent me little messages in the form of comments on our posts over the past year that I could not publish on the blog because they had nasty stuff in them such as commercial links. But this being the time for goodwill, I want to re-open this blog’s communication lines with you, my friends, wherever you are (most likely cooped up somewhere in China, I presume), and reply to your comments today.
First of all: thank you for your kind words of encouragement. It is always great to feel appreciated.
Not everybody, however, comes similarly straight to the point.
Go on, go on …
You WHAT? I hope you closed the bathroom door, at the very least.
Thanks for taking into account these mitigating circumstances – and I apologize for being so mediocre. Please be aware that no writer can be dulcet to all people all of the time.
Good idea. The wallier, the better, I always say.
Gee, I didn’t know I had it in me!
I can induce heavy breathing, too, by the sheer power of my writing – who would have thought? And then there is this:
If you consider do not care to catch sight of this article, the next time I am followed about your article, I think I will never again careless. Do you be satisfied of yourself, you do not know your article can make people so infatuated with.
They LOVE me! How sweet is that?
May your wish come true, my friend, and may everyone over there “bring in moved”, whatever that means.
Wally again. I have been wondering where he was ever since I first spotted his striped sweater. Now I know: he is apparently in a dictionary somewhere (in Monty Python’s Hungarian phrase book, by the looks of it) where he is hiding under “a piece of genius”.
Hey, I know you! Haven’t you been writing before?
I know exactly what you are trying to say, my friend. What is true is good, and what is good is true – wasn’t it Keats who was struggling with a similar thought? He could not have said it any better.
So you will be harvest happy, right? I think I am getting the knack of it.
Thanks for your comments – and have a dulcet, totally wally Christmas all of you!
