Dear Susan,

Heard you were at Sister Louisa’s Church of the Living Room and Ping-Pong Emporium the other day and, although I can’t seem to totally confirm it, you will be beating owner Grant Henry’s non-existent-but-very-cute derrière sometime in the near future. He is a good ping-pong player, but he’s a bit cocky about his game. I am quite certain that you can win. He has personally guaranteed me $1,000 in cash if I beat him. I have been playing for over two years, and I am planning on collecting the money any day now. This win could do a great deal for the ATL’s female pong rep and the world will be a better place because Mr. Henry (whom I adore) will be beaten.

Your fan in all things pong,
Annie Kinnett Nichols
Atlanta Intown contributor/copyeditor

p.s. Maybe he’ll give you $1,000 in cash, but I doubt it.
p.p.s. I’m sure he will give you a baseball cap with his face on it.
p.p.p.s. I look forward to shaking your hand.

  1. Sarandon calls herself a “ping-pong propagandist” so let’s just go with what the lady calls it. I hope Susan sees this and takes up the challenge.
