Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Dear Tyler,

This is just a quick note from the alternate you, the one who didn't drop out of school and who didn't sign away his future to the restaurant life. 

First off, it feels fantastic not having a burn on your hand that ballooned up like a certain memorable floating object this past week. I enjoy not having to obsessively wash my face to avoid an extra large, pizza-like facial breakout, and while doing two hours of homework a day is annoying, it's nice having about six hours a day free to do anything. 

Most of all, it's nice being able to sustain the long- distance relationship you had going for you the last year. At least you had weekends to go down to see her, but that kinda went out the window along with basic communication. How much do you enjoy cutting shallots now?


Unreal Tyler. 

P.S. You probably enjoy cutting shallots that much don't you?!? You're fucking crazy. 

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
