Dear friend,

I hope my letter finds you in good health. I’m writing to you regarding the conversation we had last week after the monthly quiz. You had invited me over for dinner to your place and, as always, I gladly accepted, drooling in anticipation of the delicious spread. As you know, I did not eventually turn up. You must think it was awfully rude of me but things were not in my control. Soon after getting on my bike, I realised I had left my phone back at the venue of the quiz. I rushed back but the care taker of hall had already locked up and left. I was heartbroken. Having lost all the contact numbers along with my phone, I cannot reach out to anyone. I am sure you are very upset with me. I remembered your address and lacking other means to reach you, I am sending you my apology. I am sure you’ll forgive my rudeness in not turning up for your dinner when you read this and any misgivings you might have had about my behaviour will be clarified. Hope to hear from you soon.

Lots of love,
Abc.
