I received this interesting message over the weekend and thought I’d share. The sender wanted to remain anonymous, but I really appreciated her taking the time to pen (type) out her initial reaction to our meeting and then further, her change of mind.
While never have I introduced myself as a journalist (I’m really not), I always hope to continue writing in some capacity and form, learning, expressing, sharing-through my words whether it be through a publication, a blog, or a journal.
This show of support made my day and I appreciate it, Ms. Anon.
Read this all (very long, sorry) email. It may sounds weird, but it ends well I promise.
Well, where to start ?
First saying that you don’t know me.
I just met you once, randomly in PP, during one of the WUPP Party few months ago, because we both had relations in common.
I met you and we introduced to each other. The first thing I told you was “Damn, you’re beautiful !” to which you replied “Oh shut up !”. And that was it. The only words we exchanged. haha !
After that day, I won’t lie, I was quite septic concerning your skills as a journalist. Yeah, that’s horrible but, when you meet a stunning girl complaining about everyone telling her that she’s beautiful you, (well I) consider it as condescension. Probably a (not so) hidden jealousy feeling.
So that was months ago, I sadly left PP, and today, while reading an article in the WUPP facebook page, surfing and clicking, I ended in you blog.
Well, that’s the point of my message : I must say that I misjudged you. You are talented. Some of your articles made me laugh, some others touched me, and this ability to touch one’s feeling with your words is the perfect illustration of your sharp talent.
So in other words : Go On Girl !
A girl from Paris.
PS ; I’m not a sociopath, not a lesbian, not a voyeur, I don’t expect any answer and i know that this mail can sound weird (and I’ll probably be like “Girl, why don’t you just SHUT UP”) but I mean, I misjudged, I was stroke by your words, seems legit to admit it to the right person. Cheers !“
