Yes, we didn't send out an ottawan last Friday.
Things happened that caused a delay. Then we thought, we should send out an email that says we're delayed. But since the ottawan would come out later, that seemed an unnecessary annoyance because we don't like messing around with your inbox.
But later, as it turned out later, was really late. Should we send out something that most people would miss, or at best, see Saturday morning?
But as Saturday morning rolled around, maybe it's too soon. This is an opportunity to break up the weekend.
So we planned to send out a weekend ottawan.
We eventually ordered Chinese food over which to discuss it, then we realized that we had not seen the most recent Ted Lasso. That would clear our minds. Then Ted Lasso was followed by No Sudden Move, the new Steven Soderbergh thriller on Crave that we heard about on a podcast.
Now it's Sunday. We asked ourselves, again, who will be receiving this – many of you receive it in your work emails and you'll be opening it on tomorrow, presumably after reading this edition.
Sending the weekend ottawan, which had looked a great idea 24 hours ago, just seemed silly now. So we fretted some more.
We really should have just sent out a 'Sorry, No ottawan today email.’ We apologize for our absence.
We'll see you tomorrow, most likely – Martha and Darren
