Reader Mail: It Is Not Ours to Question Why

We're always here for our readers, even when they're asking really, really strange questions. Like this one, received in the wee hours of this morning:

Hi,
I would like to email amanda hesser for her birthday. Do you know where I can send it>?

Thank You

We had no idea it was de rigueur to send birthday wishes to your food writers. But it does seem that Mrs. Latte turns 34 tomorrow, which means you still have time to overnight a card to 229 West 43rd Street, 10036.

We'll try to give you adequate notice on Bruni's special day, so you can just use regular mail.
