Well, you were correct, and did a good job of explaining it without being pedantic or over the top. It made sense to have that conversation, and everything just flowed from there.

Well, in that case I'll just say that I"m looking forward to seeing how it sorts itself out. :)

Well, I have to admit I'm sorry to hear that real life is going to be intruding on your writing time, but at the same time I'm glad to hear that you're able to resume your studies with an eye towards completion. I wish you nothing but success in all your endeavors, and will enjoy whatever is posted when it happens.
