E, wait!
I don't mind at all if you and Cindy finish what you were doing with Myths
of Sexuality.  It was just one possibility.  I snagged something else
equally interesting.  Go on and finish it up, unless you think you're
going to be stuck with something else for a good while. If that's the
case, I'll take it on, but otherwise you may as well carry on.
Thanks anyway.
