      I’VE ADDED WEYMOUTHPORT'S FUNCTION ROOM AND THE SOUTH SHORE COUNTRY CLUB TO THE VENUES WHERE OUR PLAY HAS BEEN PERFORMED.  I DELETED ALL THE PRESUMPTUOUS PARENTHETICAL PAUSES (“PAUSE FOR LAUGHTER FROM AUDIENCE.” (WE WISH.)
      IS IT SENDABLE NOW? DO YOU THINK WE SHOULD GO AHEAD AND USED THE WORD FUCKING INSTEAD OF THE EUPHEMISM EFFING, WHICH SOUNDS RATHER QUAINT THESE DAYS. I DID CHANGE IT BUT WILL CHANGE BACK IF YOU SO ADVISE.
LOVE,
MOM

      I  WOULD STAY WITH EFFING RATHER THAN THE MORE NOTORIOUS WORD.  A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE STILL OFFENDED BY THE F WORD.
     THE OTHER THING I THINK YOU SHOULD DO IS CUT THE MATERIAL ABOUT THE SETTING DOWN TO ABOUT NOTHING.  THAT’S NOT THE MATERIAL THAT WILL PIQUE AN EDITOR'S INTEREST.  
LOVE

     ALAS, I FIND WE ALREADY SUBMITTED OUR PLAY TO RYAN HARBAGE AT LITTLE, BROWN NINE YEARS AGO.  SORRY TO TAKE SO MUCH OF YOUR SCANT SPARE TIME,  SO SCANT YOU DON’T HAVE TIME TO PUT A COMMA AFTER LOVE.
LOVE,
MOM
