"Do Not Write A Bad Novel About Life At Gawker With Angst Or Even Waspish Humor"

The following is a 100% authentic email about what I should do next from my mom's father. Two things to know: He makes wine with grapes he grows himself in Southern Maryland! Also, he is alive (it was the other one).

Hello Love, We have anxieties about you. After all, what is life after Gawker? The Streets? Nah. You could join the army. Do PR: an outrageous fantasy. Do not write a bad novel about life at Gawker with angst or even with waspish humor. There are merits to being a YOGA instructor; it is not well paid in dollars; but better in emotional reward. The role is even socially useful. Do we send food packages? Wine is too bulky. Here is a gift certificate for three bottles of my 07 white. More when you return clean empty bottles. Stay well, Walter D.
