Dear Mr. Wilder

Re: Break My Stride

We find it a little perturbing that, even in a surreal dream state, your partner appears to think so little of you that, upon your arrival at their East Asian whereabouts from yours in Manhattan by means of but a little row boat, they are more concerned with getting their washing done and boasting of walking about briskly without being forcefully decelerated, wrestled to the ground and/or pinned down, than even giving you a little hug for your efforts.

If you will forgive me, Mr. Wilder, we think that you can do better than courting one whom by your own admission is ‘’feeling cocky'' and not deserving of your impressive nocturnally conjured exploits.
