Back & forth with my niece

Recently a niece of mine sent me the following Richard Simmonds video that I really enjoyed.

Now what is listed below is the back and forth that my niece and I had regarding the spelling of my last name in her email to me with the video.

Give me ONE good reason why you of all people should be spelling my name with an 'e' at the end? Just ONE.

Hello Uncle, I would just like to say that in my contemplation about the best reason as to why your last name is spelt with an 'e' at the end, I had to wonder why, of all things to observe on this email, you had to see that. I thought about the fact that I took your name from an address book compiled almost 10 years ago, and which I have yet to edit. I also thought about all the times I have seen my first name misspelt in the address sections of many emails, sometimes from long time childhood friends. Finally I asked myself whether it was worth sending you this very humorous video to brighten your very hectic day as a college student/career person, as you've done for me many times in the past. In the end, I could not decide on one reason why I misspelt your name so I decided to write you this email (dictionary in hand). I am also prepared to read any response to this email. :)
Your Niece
P.S. - Did you like the video?

Actually, I did. It was freaking funny. Thank you very much my favorite Niece.
