It's been a while since we've talked. I miss you. We'll have to do lunch next time you're downtown.
Just because we haven't spoken lately doesn't mean that you haven't been on my mind. I mean, it's been impossible not to think of you recently--what with all that pesky news coverage about trustees and tax forms and influence and whatnot. (Don't worry; it's not that bad.
