I just spent an insane about of time sifting through every email I have ever sent. It was mildly amusing reading some of the subject lines.
Like this one to my mom:
I don't have your silver scapular necklace.
Or these two that remind me that I used to have a social life:
Re: Help! Babysitter??
MUST have a sitter Thurs!!!
I have no recollection of this one:
I need four.
Whatever it was, apparently I needed multiples. Oh, I bet it was concert tickets!
How about this one to a mommy friend of mine:
Hi! Wanted to touch base w/ your husband.
(And that not all I wanted to touch!) I am so kidding. But reading subject lines in emails allows you to add tone and take things out of context.
This one strikes me as extra chatty:
Re: Fwd: Re: Re: Re: Re: did you get my message?
Here is a typical one to my husband, before we were constantly connected through ichat.
Erik bring lunch to 9:30 gate & pick up at 3pm today
Which would be quickly followed by a:
Re: Re: Re: are you mad to me?
And then a:
Re: Re: Re: Re: thank you
There was the period when we sold a tons of stuff on craigslist.com:
Re: #1 Consumer Reports Rated JOGGING Stroller -- Kelty Kids - $100
Re: Bookshelves, Bookshelves, Bookshelves. We got 'em. You take 'em.
Re: Harry Potter Collection Extravaganza!!!! CD's & Hardcovers --Books 1-5 - $60
No wonder I am so successful as a advertising copywriter.
But this one, this one just might be a reoccurring theme:
I'm a mess.
