Just to let you know, I am indeed reading your book. In fact, it's my choice for my book report since it happened to arrive at a convenient time and is of a bite-size length. Though I regret posting this here, since it ruins the surprise of a formal tangible thank-you. I just wanted to assure you that it had arrived and not been lost in the byzantine system of letters and boxes. I will get around to listening to your other gift as soon as I finish the book.

As for you, thank you for inviting me over. Don't expect something in the mail from me. Or at least act surprised when it arrives.

I want to kill you, deja vu.
