1. A friend was saying how much she loved your recent NYT hipster article and I said, Well, you haven’t lived til you’ve read his article on how he tried to pass as a dog groomer for some certification… Where would I find that article? Is it only available in a book? I’d love to send it to my friend to dazzle her further w/ your wit…

    A Fan

  2. Thanks, Maria! Long time no hear! Apologies, too, for the glacial speed with which I answer e-mail on my website: I am sloth.

    Hope you’re well!

  3. I am married to an Alford and have been a fan even before said marriage. I recall a column Henry Alford wrote regarding the pronunciation of his surname. All or Al preceding the “ford”. Is there a copy of it somewhere that I can show my husband, Michael Alford?
