Sorry for the delayed response. I opened your e-mail on my phone while my date was in the bathroom, but then I saw that it required more than a "yes" or "no" reply, decided that was too much work, marked it as unread, and then forgot about it entirely until just now! via Pocket

Ditto on all of this, except the last one... I quietly mark it done after a few months...

You e-mailed asking for my opinion, and I wanted to give a really thorough, well-thought-out, articulate response, so I starred your e-mail, and over time it became a mascot for my illogical but oppressive sense of dread in the face of slightly annoying tasks. That little yellow star became a shining testament to the burden of modernity! Every day, it dared me to write a response worthy of the time I’ve made you wait, and every day I thought, Ugh, no. But today! Today I will respond! Rejoice, my patient friend! (I’m actually really busy, though, so this is going to be a vague, half-assed response that I could have easily written in the minute after I first read your e-mail, five months ago.) Sorry!

Every one of these is perfect. "Oof, I really didn’t mean to take twelve days to respond to your e-mail. Does it ever feel like time is passing way too fast and you never have enough hours in the day to accomplish anything? Like, the sands of time have eroded the midpoint of the hourglass and it’s all just freely falling through now? Anyway, to answer your question: Yes, I can do 3 p.m."
