A few days ago, right before I went out of town, I received this email:
It was submitted by Anne (firstname.lastname@example.org) on Thursday, September 1, 2005 at 13:44:01
Poor misunderstood little sophisticate, living in a land of Mormon heathens…
Well, THANKS Anne, for understanding what I’ve been trying to convey for SO long. I AM a sophisticate, and I appreciate your understanding of that, and as soon as I am done replying to this email (on my VERY PUBLIC blog, of course), I am going to go LOOK UP sophisticate in my dictionary, and make sure this was a compliment, and not a derogatory, and slightly sarcastic, dig.
As far as the Mormon heathens, well, I’m going to have to beg ignorance. I don’t remember calling the Mormons heathens, and so I shall defer to my friend Jeff Lindsay. Jeff, are Mormons heathens? I’ve certainly never called them that term, and so I really need to know.
