Received a Nice Letter Yesterday

Dear Mr. XXXXX

I have been watching you on Channel XX for the past few months. I must say that I am very impressed with your weight loss. Of course, I don't know how much actual weight you've lost, but it looks like probably about 50 pounds [I've lost 60, but who's counting?]. Watching your progression has really given me some inspiration the last few months because I have lost about 30 pounds, myself.

You look great and I am very happy for you. I hope you'll drop me an email sometime. Maybe we can meet and discuss.

I have no intentions of calling her, although I may send a quick thank you email, but that was a nice little ego boost on my chair this morning.

Gratz man! It's always cool when other people notice stuff like that, really makes you feel good.

Do you work in the media or something?

Yeah, actually at the same time that I'm flattered, I'm also a little weirded out that...
A.) She even watches these hearings [these are government hearings that just happen to be televised], and

B.) She would take the time to write a note about it

Who knows? SHe could be the hottest girl on the face of the planet, but I also have a girlfriend, so I don't see much happening.

Actually, the 60 pounds was my interjection into her note. Bee-otch wasn't giving me enough credit.

Would she have noticed from the TV that your ring finger has no ring? If she merely wanted to thank you for the inspiration you have provided for her weight loss, she could have done that without expressing an interest in further contact. I am thinking she thinks you have "potential." But, I am not a woman. You might show the letter to some women you know and ask their opinion, but perhaps not the girlfriend. Wives and girlfriends tend to react rather than reason.
