Dear Mr. Tuttle,
Thank you for lending me your book by Ferenc Máté. I am enjoying his rants against modern conveniences, such as the clothes dryer. I find myself agreeing with him, but I have a feeling that he doesn’t live in the Pacific Northwest, where drying clothing outdoors is a funny idea nine months out of the year.
We of course, being incredibly reasonable people, have solved that problem by building a house with a nice cathedral ceiling and installing an indoor clothes line. However, I fear we have transgressed here as well – Mate spends a good page ranting about the stupidity and wastefulness of cathedral ceilings.
Sincerely, your aspiring reasonable neighbor
