I am writing you this letter to know that I would like to go ahead and officially throw in the white flag.
I get it - you beat me.
You are better than me and I will never ever be able to catch up with you or get ahead of you.
Now in the spirit of friendly competition, I would really appreciate it if you would ease up a little bit.
No one really likes a sore winner and you are really pounding your point home.
I mean - it is one thing to best an opponent but really is there any need to jump up and down on them and somehow magically triple at the finish line? Really?
I am asking - no wait- in all reality - I am throwing myself upon your mercy. Any respite would be much appreciated.
Your humbly beaten opponent,
