I really appreciate you getting in touch.

Well, I’ll probably appreciate it, especially if your message was particularly nice. I like nice messages. Who doesn’t like nice messages?

General Disclaimer

In the unlikely event that your message is for whatever reason not nice, I can make no guarantees on the subject of appreciating it.

In fact, due to various unfortunate life-experiences, personal failings, and one particularly aggravating encounter with an ill-tempered pony in Dorset, in the United Kingdom, I have sometimes found appreciating unpleasant matters to be rather a struggle.

And while I may at least intend to appreciate your message, I can make no promises. An unprovoked pony attack can harden a man.
