My dear,

Yes, I do agree with you that this incident was terrible. But there’s more to it than meets the eye.

This wasn’t just plain terrible. This was fancy terrible. This was terrible with raisins in it!”

The kind of terrible that you can’t look away from. That terribly fanciful terror.

This was a terrible to beat all terribles!

Let’s hope we get more like this!

Falsely yours,
Dorothy Parker
