One of the most amusing things about the internet is the amazing variety of people you encounter. I was recently amused to get the following message from someone whom I had never before met:

Subject: how are you doing
Message:
hi are you you doing im doing okay what are you doing today

Let me tell you just how refreshing it is to get such a caring letter from a complete stranger. And what's even better is she turned out to be someone who thought I was clearly the single most attractive person on the planet. Talk about flattery.

A quick look at her blog shows that this lovely lady is a sweet and caring individual, who apparently also has the libido of seasoned baboon in the month of May. You know, sort of like those I described in my recent poem. And apparently, I'm her type.

Being the nice guy I am, I feel I have to respond:

Thank you for your kind message! Am I I doing? I'm actually not quite sure how to respond to that question. Let's skip that and go to the next one, cool? Ok. Oh, you're doing okay, glad to hear it. What am I doing today? I think I'm doing the same thing I do every day: living. Again, thank you so much, your note really made my day. I know this because I'm grinning from ear to ear. Don't be a stranger!

Wow, talk about a tear-jerker. I'm left only with the immortal words of Louis Armstrong: "And I think to myself, what a wonderful world."
