It has just come to my attention that I have hurt a dear friend’s feelings. I hate doing this more than anything in the world, really. Without making it worse by naming names (you know who you are) I want to offer this sincere apology.
I’m sorry. I should have told you what I was up to and gotten your blessing before I blogged about it. I was trying to be funny but I’m afraid I crossed a line and was just an asshole.
I love you. I adore you. I value our friendship. Please, forgive me.
