AXXE Wetsuits

I have this rad Axxe wetsuit jacket top thing Bubbie sold me on short notice the night before a trip to California a couple years ago. The thing is as supple and sexy and snug as you'd figure it would be. I mean, I would stick that thing and a pair of trunks on and jump into the Arctic. Unfortunately, after a few months of constant use, the zipper started to not work so great. Yeah, that was a shitcan sentence. But it really did, or didn't, or whatever. Anyhow, the thing would just unzip. Mid paddle. Or mid womp. Or mid whatever. And so I emailed the Axxe guy in California and he had me send it to him to check it out. He turned it around pretty quickly and charged me only half the cost for fixing it. Which I gotta say was a surprise as he'd not mentioned anything about paying for the repairs on something possibly defective in the first place. But apparently the thing was out of the one year warranty, and as I got it on the midnight surf-buddy, our-kids-play-together down low, I didn't have a receipt. And that, buddy, is life. So really, even the offer to pay for 50% and sending it back without any remuneration and all that, was pretty generous. And all I can say is sweet, thanks Eric at Axxe wetsuits.
The thing is, I haven't sent him the money.
I was carrying around a blank check and two stamps in the book I was reading (a book about Molotov, mind you) and thinking that I'd get it taken care of with an envelope from the office. Then I started to freak out every time I'd walk out of my studio at the end of the day with a blank check falling out of my book. So I started leaving the blank check at home. I don't even know what happened to the stamps. And the other day, three, maybe four months after I received my fixed wetsuit I get an email from the Axxe guy wondering where his moneys is at. So here is my public mea culpa (or whatever that annoying Greek phrase is):
DEAR AXXE WETSUIT GUY,
I AM SORRY. I AM ON THE CASE. I'LL JUST PAY FOR THE FULL REPAIR COST AT THIS POINT. HOPEFULLY SOON.
SINCERELY, TODDY.
