Don't worry, I'm fine.
I've been around, watching you all. I'm much prouder of you than you might think all of you, you've done splendidly so far.
I have been terribly busy, though, so I apologize if you've grown lonely without me. Been doing some great projects, many of which I won't be able to share with all of you. However, I will be able to share a delightful little bit I wrote about a sandwich.
Hopefully this makes up for my absence.
