Out of Office Tweet (Automated Response)

Obviously we am very concerning among the flowers.
Ditto says ‘Go Home Now’ but what about the hours?
 212-555-4444 but it’s déclassé to phone

or text weekends, and dubious at best Mon. & Fri. & as
 for Tues.-Thur. why it’s impossibly busy here at our loft
 on Lafayette I really

don’t know what you should do my advice is buy a fat
 novel for a couple of bucks from one of those Avenue A
 vendors and get on a bus

and stay on it until you finish it could be weeks if it’s
 Proust have you read Proust I haven’t but they say he’s
 good & takes a lot of

Time you seem to have a lot of Time that’s your
 problem you see we’re all tremendously busy I mean we
just don’t have Time so do read Proust

maybe we can get back to you in a few weeks though
come to think of it by then we’ll be on vacation for a
few months but don’t give up you

mean a lot to us it really do care for you & want to reach
out as much as possible & of course we could talk about
Proust so put time to use

and she’ll have lunch in the fall just don’t text or call
except Tues.-Thur. though it’s going to be a very busy
season & the middle of the

week gets squeezed up like a goddam ball did I tell you
one of my assistants had a sex change the weird thing is I
can’t tell the difference.

OK, see you next winter it was great not talking texting
meeting tweeting skyping or writing & they look
forward to not seeing you because

frankly we’d as soon see you as bathe in glue it’s just not
a fun thing to do you reek of bad economics & poor
prospects & you need to get

your shoes shined. Read Sigmund Proust he’s really
educational as are the Collected Works of Thomas
Dickens Fyodor Tolstoy Henry Conrad &

Jane Joyce so be happy & of good cheer the most
important thing is your health are your parents still alive
oh so sorry to hear.

Don’t ping us we’ll ping you
