Heather tells me that LOTS of you have sent flowers to Elaine. She thanks you and says the whole house smells WONDERFUL! She's taking a few of the arrangements into Elaine tonight.
One request, though. It seems many of you only put your first name on the cards. This is going to make it very hard for Elaine and the family to know who sent them. How about this---if you sent Elaine flowers or a card (snail-mail style), could you email her and let her know that it was you? Maybe something like this:
"Hi Elaine. This is Dave, aka drummer. I'm the one who sent the flowers with the card signed Idiot. I now realize only an Idiot would do this, but I really thought you knew I was the only Idiot from ch.com and thus would readily make the connection. Sorry. Just call me an Idiot."
Thanks for your help in this. Elaine and her family will appreciate it, as they appreciate the flowers, phone calls, emails and posts.
Oh, and the email example given above is purely fictional. Any resemblance to any real person or persons, living, dead or otherwise, is purely coincidental, a Freudian slip, the result of exhaustion or any other excuse that will form the basis of a solid defense, should one ever be needed.
