I received the above 2-page letter via snail mail. Here is my response to the author.

Dear Mason,

Thanks for the letter. It may be hard for me to answer your questions accurately without sampling the liquid beverage you describe – the scientist in me likes to reproduce experiments before I come to conclusions. So next time, please send some of the relevant libation along with your questions, especially since today always ends with a 'y'. Despite my sobriety however, I will try to respond.

My answer:
