Dear Glenburne,

Have you ever seen anyone fall off the edge of the world? If you choose to employ this kind of reasoning, things could get ugly really fast.

I can justify things using a half decent text editor.

All things considered, I should like to think I win this round.

Sincerely,
Freckles

PS. Not cliff: world! No intentional misreading!

PPS. Geocentrism sukz.

Dear Freckles,

Are you confusing geocentrism with flat-earthism again?

As a matter of fact, the world used to be flat. But then the Numenoreans were idiots, etc., and only Elves can take the sea road into the West....

Geocentrism sucks lollipops and marzipan, thank you very much.

Sincerely,
Glen

Dear Glenburne,

Yes to all except the 'again'. I've never confused the two before and you're only being condescending.

Anyway, how was your day?

Sincerely,
Freckles

Dear Freckles,

My library is getting rid of half the nonfiction section and I want to launch an oppositional campaign but cannot ethically do so because I'm an employee. That's how my day is. I've stashed volumes of Plato, Lucretius, and Yeats in my office so they can't be deleted. That might also be unethical, but I'm trying to think about posterity here.

Don't object to my use of "again." It's a free word, and it has a right to be included in my sentences if it wants to.

Sincerely,
Glen

Dear Glenburne,

How is Yeats non-fiction? Did he write a book on How to Propose a Lot? And what is your library replacing the books with?

Sincerely,
Freckles

Dear Freckles,

I have just made the surprising but important discovery that you can change the size of the text box in which you write posts by grabbing the bottom right corner where there are (seemingly unnecessary) lines. I see now why the lines are not unnecessary.

Though actually, I'm not sure why one would need to change the size of the text box?

*Sigh* It seems the more I know, the more I am confused.

Dear GG,

Thank you for sharing your discovery. I have since tried changing the box and quickly changed it back to its original size because it was unaesthetic and I hate change and you're completely right why would we ever need to change it?

Your aphorism is, I feel, right up there with Aristotle and Dr. Seuss. But don't let it go to your head.

Sincerely,
Freckles

Freckles,

Things like that always go straight to my head. Much like sugar, caffeine, and dodgeballs.

Dear GG,

Are you suggesting that we have a biological reaction to compliments?

Dear Freckles,

I meant Yeats' poetry, which is the nonfiction section. Along with The Iliad, et. al. I don't know what his prose nonfiction would be like. C.S. Lewis was probably not a fan; he liked Yeats' poetry but was stunned to find out that Yeats believed in "Magic," as he put it. Never seemed to get over that aversion, either.

We have put books in the dumpster. I am not happy.

-Grumpy Glen
