Dear Michael (Or should it be Michelle?)
Thank you for your e-mail, which gave me great encouragement.
I hope that the gender change operation passed off with no hiccups.
I regret to inform you that I can not take this application further. I would have loved to have punched some holes, in an assistant capacity. However, I am holophobic. That space in the middle that was once substance. It makes me feel a bit on edge.
However, I thank you for your response, and at least I know the going rate for holepunching.
That is; once I get over the phobia.
