The Nicest Unsubscribe Letter, Ever (Received this morning, 6:40am)

To my dearest MUG Team,
It is with the heaviest of hearts that I write this note.

Due to circumstances in and out of my control, I have made the hard and unhappy choice to unsubscribe from the daily MUG email.

It has given me so much fun and so many resources over the years. From things to do in this grand metropolis of ours, to fun bits of quizzed trivia, to time-murdering websites, I have enjoyed it all.

Now that I have a new child and have moved beyond the borders of my boroughs, I feel I need to let go of my past.

If, nay, WHEN I return to the cacophonous, trash-strewn, death-defying arms of my beloved city, I will be sure to resubscribe and be right back in it.

Thanks so much for everything,

New York City
