Dear Laurie, Lili, Nadia,
Thank you for your interest. I regret to inform you that your request for my presence in your exhibition has not been successful. Your oversight of my needs made this decision quite simple.
- Temperature no lower than 75F, with a humidity level of at least 70 percent - Both salted and unsalted spring water - Extra shells of various sizes and shapes - Ample sand, regularly cleaned - At least three plastic pants and other toys - Regular sponge care - A deep sand bed to hide in to relieve my stress - Huts for both myself and my friends (of whom you have yet to mention?) - Friends
It is has become evident to me that perhaps the three of you are struggling with the constraints of your own shells. Although my sincere sympathies are extended, I do not accept this projection onto my circumstance, nor do I appreciate your use of my presence as a metaphor for your own devices.
