I hope you don't feel too disappointed

From Letters of Note:

Monty Python's Eric Idle and former British PM, John Major were born on the same day. Idle wrote this letter to Major on their shared 50th birthday:

The Rt.Hon. John Major M.P. 
10 Downing Street 
London SW1A.1AA 
12th January 1993 

Dear John Major, 

On the 29th March you and I will both be fifty. 

Has it ever occurred to you that, but for a twist of fate, I should be Prime Minister and you could have been the Man in the Nudge Nudge sketch from Monty Python? 

I hope you don't feel too disappointed, 

                                                                    Happy birthday anyway, 

                                                                                 Eric Idle
