I'm doing well. Thanks for asking.

Suit? You can blend me a nice suit? I'll take a classic single-breasted charcoal gray suit with matching trousers. And maybe your blenders can choose me a nicely contrasting tie that will blend into the background and not stand out too much.

So you have a side business in Dotcom glass? Sorry to hear about that, I know the dotcom crash was hard. It's good to see you survived it and are still selling blended glass. As it happens, my windshield is broken, could you make me a new one? It'll have to be clear color because I need to see through it. You can mail it to me at [address].

Thanks, and I hope you have a nice day.
