So...... every once in a while I receive an email ... or a letter... or the ever rare smoke signal (Thanks Chief RunsWithSegways) with some sort of reader feedback.
And far to often they sound alot like this....
I recently discovered your blog and took some time to read it ...... Also I recently got this explosive case of the stomach flu. I preferred the flu! Cause your blog sucks!!! Go away!
Now good or bad... I always promptly respond...
For example this one I responded this way.
Thanks for the feedback. Sorry about your stomach flu. I took your criticism to heart. I've attached a list of possible future topics for you to look at and let me know if you think these may be more interesting to you.....
Again thanks so much,
From the Mind of a Madman
And then sometimes I get an email like this.......
Dear Mind of a Madman,
I have become an avid follower of your writing. Many times I find myself chuckling at your amazing and funny stories. I really really think you're the best. In fact I tell all my friends to log on here ..... I feel like I really know you now. Like we are almost family.... that's why I was hoping you could lend me say $10,000. It would just be for a couple weeks.
Thanks buddy and enclosed is an IOU,
So of course I sent PaulyShoreRules23 a check.... This one....
but then the other day....I RECEIVED THIS!!!!
I enjoy this site from time to time. You seem to cover a wide variety of topics..... and since I don't think anyone actually reads this (no offense) I feel safe to ask you....this personal favor. Can you give me a few tips on how to really big time spice up my sex life? I would really appreciate it.... and so would my lover!
Finally.... somebody actually needs my help......... so DryspellDebbie if you are reading this...... I absolutely will! In fact.... I will make this my top priority .........and my next post. Well everybody I'm off to go search the darkest corners of the internet and do a little research.
Blog ya'll uncomfortably soon
