Dykeman’s Dicker, huh?

You know, if it wasn’t for finding your facades so moderately amusing, I’d have to say you are the most creatively ‘elusive’ character I’ve ever had the ‘displeasure’ of meeting.

 Justification for ownership of your letters ‘as art,’ regardless being in someone else’s possession, yet those ‘you’ possess can’t be claimed by their authors because they aren’t? Art that is. Ridiculous as that sounds, I could somehow see such an argument standing up in court, at least on television.

‘The Meating Place.’ (Yes, I plugged in the numbers. I can’t imagine how you made that one fall into place.)

As for ‘asks,’ I suppose the letter I outlined was, a bit ‘pie in the sky’ and far too ‘plum on the thumb’ for a realistic expectation you’d send it. Considering this

particular turn of events though, in addition to the full scope of this endeavor of yours, I can’t say I have any sympathy for Bianca having ‘betrayed’ you, as you’ve so labeled it. (Yes, still getting my five dollars worth and keeping up the letters.) So, I’ve decided it’s time to sit back and see how you get yourself out of this whole thing. That’s right, I’m done offering advice. That means no more hiding behind your silly, overly-thought out, officially registered; but composed in vain, ‘made up’ mind-games, produced solely to prevent you from doing the right thing. (Great job though, as always; don’t want you thinking I’m too good to offer up accolades)

But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to shake things up for you in the meantime.

“How would he do that,” you’re probably asking yourself? Why by offering up an

Ultimatum, of course. Putting you between a rock and a hard place. That is to say, I really don’t care how you do it, my letter or otherwise, but you either tell this woman you're posting her letters and remove them, unless she gives her permission to post them. And… ‘like-‘ immediately, guy. Or so help me, I'll-

You know, I bet you figure there's no way I can find her censored address to blow up your little ‘farce,’ but what you fail to recognize; specifically with ‘Brian’s Bargain’ and the ‘non-Commandable Command,’ is that a my life still exists outside the game, to which the so-called ‘game rules’ -official or otherwise- don’t apply or dictate I can’t do something that motivates you to undertake said (n.C.C) yourself. Put simply, comply or I'll just take a day off work, drive to Troy, meet Bianca during visitor’s hours and see how that situates the series.

Though I can’t tell you how vehemently I ‘DON’T’ want to be put in such a position.

Most directly, people insist on taking 460 to 95 to the 64, straight through Richmond, past the Fan district and Tuckahoe for the dump out at Short Pump, to just be done with the drive. But considering Richmond traffic and the likelihood of missing any or all of the various exits; not to mention seeing Dumbarton’s and the laughter from saying it verbally endangers my life, I’m basically left to take the 295 around Richmond past Mechanicsville. The thing about 295 though, the posted limit is 70, but every car coming off the cloverleaves merges at 30 to 40, making me jockey in and out for a position and a rate of speed that gets me to Troy in under three hours.  And no, if you’re thinking the 95 to 288 past Brandermill is an

appropriate substitute, I’m here to tell you I wouldn’t take that back-wood, ‘might as well be a chip-sealed, deer trail’ of a highway dedicated to WWII Veterans, around Richmond if bombs were falling. Which maybe befits said dedication now that I that I think about it.

Land Nav preferences aside, to include what you might consider a ‘failure to train’ regarding assumption of the Seated Commander’s position, I expect the next letter you post be the one rectifying this situation. So, before you spend too much time thinking through your options, or ‘trying to tighter tailor’ your rules for a ‘finer fit to your fiction,’ just know at this point, you no longer have any.

Options, that is.

How's that for instigating one of your so-called Impasses?

Spoilful and Abstinently yours,

- Brian
