Thanks for your reply! It was a funny and good read as always. I have now dismissed the Honorable Dr. Iain from being your alias. But I have a new theory , you are an Irish expat, named Anne O´ Nymous (say it quickly).
I fully respect your wish to not show your photo, but if you change your mind in future, there are some creative solutions.
You can for example show a photo from the back, or a silhouette photo, or wear a veil or a burqa. Just some friendly hints. But I go down on my knees and apologize for my bad spelling of the word “grapevine” but it could have been worse, how about “grejpvajn”? Am I forgiven? About photo under the pillow, I do not put any woman’s photo there, my extremely beautiful Thai wife would hunt me with a sledgehammer. I am glad that I am not Hercule P. In Agatha Christies books, he was born in 1864, 148 years ago. My friends tell me that I do not look a day older than 140!
I am sure you can find some wrong spellings in my letter, but can you forgive me in advance?
Written with humbleness and friendliness. God bless you!
Dear Lelle (AKA Hercule Poirot’s brother),
I am glad you took my reply with a “good heart”, and I look forward to meeting someone who is almost 150 years old. What is the secret? A glass of “grejpvajn” every night perhaps? I can forgive your spelling, my Petal, because you are obviously not a native English speaker (at least I hope so), but your punctuation is amazing. You seem to have an endless supply of spaces which you throw at the page, all of which I have to laboriously remove with my special space rubber (eraser, so don’t smirk). Thank you for your creative answers to my photograph, but I think the easiest will be to use Angelina Jolie, as long as the intellectual property police don’t find out that the photograph came from Google. You just have to be so careful these days.
