This story popped into my head at the very mention of these words, and I thought I might use it as the first thing I have ever published. Ever.

James, my dear friend,

I do hope that you will accept my apologies for my unfortunate lapse, and allow me to wish you a belated congratulations upon your 21 birthday!

I am in no doubt that you found an interesting way in which to celebrate such a momentous occasion, (if you are even able to recollect the event?)

Hopefully we shall be able to raise a glass together in the saloon at some point, and make most merry, without the need of fire, of course.

Always remember that I am ever at your service.

Your humble co-conspirator.

Douglas.
