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.

Kind regards

On the A127 it occured to me that the Norbert Dentressangle v Eddie Stobart game is dangerous. Particularly as it encourages driving without due care and attention.

I decided not to play.

I then discovered it is now physically impossible not to play. Try it. Its like eating a sugar donut without licking your lips. Impossible.

Things looked promising with Stobby maintaining the lead until I reach Nobbyland betwix A10 and A12 on the return when the score went from an amazing 10-10 to a soul destroying 15-10 to Nobby.

Luckily I didn't get arrested or killed.

From Steve.

Dear Adam

Thank you for your reply.

I’m still a bit unsure as to why it is MIMAS and not just MIAS. Where do you get the extra M from? If you take the & symbol as an A, it should be MIAAS.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Kind regards

PS My Dad went to Manchester University

Tomorrow, I have to have an interview for my own job. This should be a bit weird.
