Dear Daniel,

This is regarding your fat premise (premise about fat, not…); you are so right. Here’s why I think so: my husband and I were exceedingly, even unpleasantly, thin people till we met each other at in our late 40’s. We’ve been together 13 years and are still wildly happy and each about 45 pounds “overweight.” It proves that fat equals happiness, n’est pas? Thank you for all the laughs through books and NPR, we love you.

Daniel replies:

I only know that I tend to be happy, and I am fat. You would know best if fat equals happiness in your own lives--it seems that you and your husband have been enjoying some nice nosh in the past 13 years.
