Sometimes I get love letters.

An ex of mine spies, no not spies, "keeps up to date" with me. He discovered my blog quite a while ago, and checks in every now and then to make sure I am still alive, and as sane as I ever was.

And it seems he toddled in very recently, because he emailed me something. I hope he doesn't feel too violated that I publish it here, because it is one of the nicest things anybody has ever written to me. He is an awesomely great guy, and I cannot thank him enough for the way he watches over me:

"Yeah, I do keep up with life in Maisieland via the magic of the interwebs. And, you know, I'm not sure I should write this - but I do adore you. No longer in the "I want to spend my life with this person" mode, but seriously - the mere fact you exist makes me smile. I know you don't feel comfortable with compliments - but you are smart, funny, pretty, and someone who I feel is worthy of love. Whatever love you accept from others, you return with highly polished knobs on, and you have a way of making people feel good about themselves.And you do, indeed, deserve to be with someone who counts waking up beside you as a reason to believe that all is right with the world.

All I can say is thank the Flying Spaghetti Monster for men like you, my darling.


  1. Aren't men like that wonderful? I'm glad you have a Harri in your life to appreciate the beauty you possess, even if he's not 'the Harri'.

  2. If you ever decided to set Harri up, I'm available. He even has a great name: it goes well with "prince." What he has written here shows that he has an amazing heart and a kind soul. I hope you took to heart what he said, lady, as it's all so very, very true! You deserve someone that'll love the living daylight out of you every single second of every single day. Just remember that.

  3. @Sally-Sal: I am indeed very lucky. he always knows exactly what to say.

    @ladytruth: I fear that distance is your enemy, which is a shame, because a lovely lady like you deserves a lovely man... Well, if you're ever in this neck of the woods...


You kiss your mother with that mouth?
