Over the last few days I’ve realized something about myself and this entire courtship process...I haven’t been me in a while. It’s time to rectify that.
Some leaders make the political weather, some simply cope with what it brings.
I shaped the landscape with my bare hands. Just look at the last 21 months. All but four of the Presidential elections were planned and orchestrated from my super secret underground bunker. It’s why so many people’s butthurt has made me the target of their rage, and their envy.
One month, after drinking with ilphen, he called it a fluke. I told him ‘NEVER QUESTION ZE FLUFFER!!’, and rolled the dice...they came up Oblige. Now I don’t drink with ilphen. Live and learn.
Part of my job at the top of the food chain has been to weed out the weak and strengthen those with potential. By eliminating weaker challengers, the system itself is stronger.
We are who we are.
Recently, a number of people have felt the need to foolishly try to jump in the middle of this courtship. I can understand this desire to feel like they’re involved. Maybe if they comment on things, or challenge me, they might make a name for themselves or get a little exposure. That’s fine, let them. Some people seem to be rallying around Josh a bit, which might have been interesting if he could present a challenge...
Now, to business that matters.
On Friday I made a promise to fingerguns, and she decided to set a timeline on the receipt of her gift.
Normally I would jump at a challenge like this, but this request was one that I couldn’t honor...at least not on that timeline. Not because I couldn’t, as wiping Canada wouldn’t be difficult at all, but because there are plans in motion that shouldn’t be interrupted.
Country first, always. It’s the single largest thing we have in common. You’ll have your prize...when it won’t derail war plans to do so.
Someone find me a DeLorean!
The question over the last week hasn’t been if we’re right for each other, or if things would work. The simple fact is that we are, and they would. We’ve seen that, as has everyone else. The only question is if it’s something you want. Something you’re up to.
You’ve been an excellent friend to me, and I hope that doesn’t ever change, no matter your response to my proposal. If we’re to be joined in the eyes of our God-Emperor, then I count myself blessed.
I could continue with these articles indefinitely, we all know I'm enamored by the sound of my own voice, but it’s clear that now is the natural break in this narrative for you to speak.
As always, I remain,
