Harpur Palate doesn't want my story. They said they regretted sending me the little form square knowing how much time went into creating the story. I appreciate you acknowledged my time and I also truly appreciate (this just occurred to me) that you took the time to read my story. Me: a person you don't know at all, and so I understand that your time went into reading my story and maybe couldn't go into signing that little square of paper. I'm absolutely okay with that today. I have experienced some sort of catharsis in regard to form letters (or squares, as it were). Send those squares. Try to discourage me from sending more stories which necessitate those squares.
