To whom it may concern:
I saw your ad in the paper last week as I was skimming through to locate the political section. My name is Astrid Remaldy and I must admit, my career as a copyeditor keeps me terribly busy. Not only that, but it generally wards off a fair amount of human interaction as I tend to come off as a 'grammar Nazi'. So long as you don't mind the occasional preposition put back in its proper place, or having your word choice adjusted after you've spoken incorrectly - we will get along swimmingly. I look forward to being the grandest of friends, upon my return next week from the Congo (where I am currently stationed).
P.S. If you wish, I could produce a few stellar recommendations from various family members which would address why it would be beneficial for us to pursue a friendship.
