My apologies.


Dear Anonymous Commenter Who Was Offended By My Marching Band Comment:
Well, whoever you are, you go to my school. Would you like to know a story? Once, I was in love with the marching band. The drumline. Or, to be more specific, a drummer. But it didn't work out and I got my heart broken.
I've seen field shows by AF's marching band a thousand times. They're fantastic. Am I instantly in love? No. I don't even believe in instant love. I sort of don't even believe in love. (That's a total lie. I certainly believe in love. I'm just scared to death by it.) No, I did not fall instantly in love with that boy at the dance. I've known him for several months and loved him slowly since.
I'm terribly sorry. I know AF's marching band is fantastic and I am terribly sorry to offend you. I didn't mean it. It was a generalization that I put in for literary purposes. In normal high schools (but what is normal, even?), marching band isn't worshipped.
But, at the end of the day, it's sometimes nice to watch your football team win. Or your basketball team.
So, please excuse my stereotypical generalization. It was for literary use only (much like hyperboles).
Forgive me?
All my love, Addy.

P.S. Do I know you in real life?

Hahaha! I love every single letter in the post. It made me laugh out loud. Quite frankly, I'm still laughing. I love you! And on behalf of this certain immature drummer: My apologizes.

Were you ever really in love with him?

OH!! I forgive you addy! I do! I really do. now things are much more clear! btw, I'm the one who wrote that comment. I also do agree that it is nice to see other sports teams win at ol' AF. I do not go to your school, but my sister does. and she is in the marching band. Thanks again addy, for taking time out of your life to respond to an anonymous comment!

Sincerely,
