I get you might prefer to contact me privately, too. You will always have my confidence and discretion.
Got it, thanks! I appreciate you taking the time to contact me, particularly if it’s about something you’ve been stewing over.
I'll respond to your message shortly. In the meantime, I have to share a joke with you. Ready?
What do you call a chicken with lettuce in its eye? Chicken Caesar salad!
(Don’t tell me you didn’t smile. Or groan. Or tuck it away to use on someone.)
