Joel: Hey. Dan-o, it's me. I know, I know, but things got a little hectic. My soc essay took longer than expected, and then Vanessa got sick, and you know, I wanted to bring her chicken soup, stream Gosling moves with her and stuff. Be the doting boyfriend. You gotta get into the city and meet her sometime soon, man. But not this week; she's still sick as a dog and this thing seems to be going around. Wouldn't want you taking a bug home for the boys. Anyway, tell Mom I'm sorry and I promise to get out to PA for the holidays, okay? You're the best. Later.
