I am always amazed at how you think you can read people's minds. It is
amazing. But back in earlier times it probably would have gotten you burned
at the stake. Good thing you live today, isn't it.

I honestly am not overjoyed at you being mistaken. If I were, I would
ridicule you which I am not doing. And as to chopping off your reply, I

would grow longer and longer and no one would be able to read anything.
