UPDATE FROM DEB:
Jackster, how does this sound for a reply to Roy: “I was really flattered to be asked my opinion.”
What? I do too ask my wife’s opinon on stuff. All the time. Mostly. Shut up.
“I love your Avatar and thinks it’s wonderful that you featured other Medium peeps’ Avatars in your writing. The drawings were interesting.”
Translated: “I need time to process but I think I like it, however I want to say something complimentary without committing to anything.” I know this from ratings on my “inventive” (her term) cooking, where she enjoyed it at the time but doesn’t want to get it every week from now on, thanks.
Oh, and FWIW she really liked your “My Apologies” piece (I forward stuff to her) from a couple months ago.
Ahhhhh…pure Roy. 😄
