  • Dear Eduardo:

    I am delighted about your post, “Are memes awesome? ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ¯_(ツ)_/,” because it was very enjoyable to read about your opinions about memes and how I can relate to you.

    • Dear Mochi :3,

      I am excited by your post “Greatest City in the World!,” because of your great interest in New York. I will maybe visit New York someday. It seems exciting!
      I loved the way that you used pizza. This sounds silly but it relates to everyone and that is amazing. You should continue writing about topics like this because you are great at it!
