1 ineptoline

for the record, i am still comically amateur. i don't envision this will change any time soon.

at 1:56 p.m. on march 2nd, i inquired with the family of a woman to see if they would cooperate with me on a biography of her.

at 11:36 a.m. on august 4th, i checked one of the many email accounts i created during The Name Drama of winter 2010 only to discover that the family had, in fact, replied. not six minutes after my email of inquiry was sent.

they said no. thank god. because how horrid to have to write them five months down the line and say, oh, yes, yes, i'm totally a responsible, organized, with-it person with whom you would be wise to entrust the story of your mother's life.
