Empathy No. 081
Hey there, vix.
Well, someone has a birthday coming up, huh? The big 2-0. I'll slip you a glass of champagne if you promise not to run and tell on me. But seriously, you have to let me guess what it is you want. Hmm...guess I'll have to give it a think and whisper it to you next time we're alone.
You know what? I never really thanked you for the gift you gave to me - the sketch? Sublime. Ellie, you are a miracle with a pencil, and that kind of praise I don't just toss around! I'll tell you, you are cheating yourself by doing these for free. I have been in galleries with all these little doodles, watching people bid thousands on them. Tell you what - next time you have something finished, I'll take it and find you a buyer. If you don't make at LEAST $50, then I will shower you in gifts and compliments for two weeks. Can I assume you're saying "yes"?
Have to keep this one short, vix. I'd tell you it was business, but really it's just tee time with a high-roller. By the way, when are you going to let me teach you how to play? With the delicate touch of yours, I bet your short game is divine.
