So a few weeks back I made a wise ass remark on my blog about Pulp Magazine. Now the record should show that I did in fact dedicate the bulk of my post towards a positive review of the publication. Nevertheless, I think they were annoyed with one particular remark which they chose to highlight in this month’s issue while taking a sarcastic jab at me by offering me a cookie. (Top right on the page)
For the sake of being honest, when I first read this a few days ago I thought to myself “what the hell?!”, as I felt it was undeserving. I also wrote (and saved, then deleted) a harsh post, by way of reminding Pulp of that old press adage, that they shouldn’t pick a fight with anyone who buys ink by the barrel.
However, since then much has changed.
Ramadan is in the air and it’s the month of forgiveness.
Also, with all the fasting, a cookie wouldn’t be the worst idea in the world.
So yes Pulp Magazine, I will accept your offer of one rhetorical cookie.
Actually, make it a chocolate chip cupcake from Sugar Daddy’s and we’ll call it even.
(Get one for Tala too, because she told me about all this in the first place)
