I received an email today. From a stranger. She sent me her regards. And I wondered – not your best regards?

She must be saving her very best regards for someone else I thought.

But would it have killed her to at least send me some kind regards – she must surely have some of those going spare?

Maybe she just gave me the last of the regards she had lying around.

Or else, her best regards weren’t quite ready yet.

Anyway, I’m going to reply to her… and send her some wishes … but not my best wishes.
