Thanks for stealing the Christmas cookies

I just want to reach out and thank the nice couple who stopped by my vehicle at the Anglican Church Hall two Sunday mornings ago at 12:30 a.m. to help themselves to the cookies I had placed in the back.

While eating them you may be interested to know they were the product of 17 hours of labour by a group of volunteers who were baking for charity. I regret that I didn’t take the opportunity to introduce myself to you when we were briefly together, how rude of me.

I must also apologize for not locking my vehicle each time I loaded the trays of cookies in it, as I now realize this was just an enticement to a petty thief and of course I’m really sorry if I exacerbated your condition.

I would like to extend to you both my sincerest wishes for a very Merry Christmas and all of the very best for your future.

Peter Lee
