The drunken student wrote two letters. The first, romantic and amorous, was to his sweetheart in the village. The second, ribald and shameless, to his mistress in the town.
Through an oversight he never forgave himself for, he mixed them up, sending the wrong letter to the wrong girl.

I write as a way of life: stories, blogs, articles, almost-poems. I'm a freelancer, a vegetarian, and I listen to Leonard Cohen and enjoy French films. We are dying a little more with each new day we live, so shouldn't we make the most of our time?

Oh, I somehow stumbled into marriage and fatherhood despite my lack of organization. 😉 Thank god!
And now we have SMS!
Believe it or not, dear aunt, I do not have a mobile phone.
