You open your mail to find a mysterious note - whoever wrote it, they didn't sign their name!

Long time no talk - I've been busy writing!
In fact, I've been invited to give a speech on it.
To be honest, I'm a little worried about being so visible.
Fortunately, a buddy of mine will be helping me with security.
Those gators can be pretty scary, you know.
Afterwards, I'm jamming with one of my musician friends.
It'll be pitch perfect!
(Don't make that sour face at me, you know you love terrible puns.)

What is this letter about?


Hint (how to solve):

Each line contains a clue to a word or phrase. All of those have something in common which will lead you to the answer word.

Hint (clues):

Your friend is definitely not writing all those things by hand..

I might have a partial answer?

something about keys?

Long time no talk - I've been busy writing!

typically the phrase is long time no SEE, but that doesn't quite fit my guess. EDIT: is it that he's typing on a keyboard?

In fact, I've been invited to give a speech on it.

could be the keynote speaker

To be honest, I'm a little worried about being so visible.

"keyed up"? meaning anxious?

Fortunately, a buddy of mine will be helping me with security.

safely under lock and key?

Those gators can be pretty scary, you know.

in the florida keys?

Afterwards, I'm jamming with one of my musician friends.

a keyboard player?

It'll be pitch perfect!

on key

is this a line too? Sour=key lime??

  • $\begingroup$ Yes!! Minor differences from my explanation: "visible" -> "public ___", "jamming" -> "___tar" (an attempt at wordplay) - but your answers fit just as well. Nicely done! $\endgroup$ – user812786 Jul 19 '16 at 11:35
  • $\begingroup$ Oh, and "Long time no talk" is just me mangling the usual phrase since your "friend" is catching up over text.. call it a red herring :P $\endgroup$ – user812786 Jul 19 '16 at 11:37
