My Queendom For A Foolproof Subject Line Generator.

Editor’s note: Yesterday, the subject line of this email congratulated you for surviving January 2020, and a few of you wrote in to point out that we most recently survived January 2021. But dear readers, in order to survive January 2021, you HAD to survive January 2020, so perhaps that subject line was a 4-D chess comment on the ever-marching linear nature of time, and how we’re all inhabiting the result of the millions of moments we’ve experienced in days, weeks, months, years past. Perhaps it was a reflection on the act of reflection itself, and the importance of understanding where we’ve come from as we struggle to understand where we’re going. Perhaps I’m asking you to place yourself back in Jan 2020, a more innocent time when all we had to worry about was an upcoming election with existential consequences, or the devastating impact of climate change, or figuring out what to wear to work every day.

Or perhaps it was a hastily-assembled string of words I wrote without reading a second time. Whatever the ‘truth’, the thousand typewriting monkeys who craft the Missive will be denied a second helping of dessert this evening in penance for the ‘error.’


That’s it, that’s all! See you tomorrow, and don’t forget to be kind to each other, mmmkay?
