Woops. . .

Checking my e-mail today, I found an interesting message from my lovely landlord (truly – I adore my landlord) that I am absolutely sure I wasn’t supposed to receive! 

I probably wouldn’t even have read it, except I thought it was from my friend who has the same first name and last initial as my landlord. HOWEVER, I did read it, and now I just need to share my experience with you. With a few changes to names and dates (some privacy is needed – I’m sure you understand), I am sharing this e-mail with you in all its. . . interesting glory. It was just too good not to share.

Check it out: 

Hey guys,

I am sitting in the airport trying to plan my next fun time……….
 
As you know, we were talking with K___ and S___about trying to take the boat to P-town for the weekend so we can party like gay rock stars!
 
We were thinking of two weekends in July…..just in case of bad weather 
 
The four of us are all available on the weekend of XX-XX and XX-XX.
 
How do these dates work for you guys?
 
Also, while we are down, S___ and K___ want to take you guys and your roommates out for a boat ride, P-Diddy style!
 
Let me know if these dates work ……talk to you soon……have to go work now 😦
 
Bubba

So. Many. Things. 

1.) My landlord’s name is not Bubba.
2.) I know it’s P-town, but I never knew that to “party like gay rock stars” apparently involves boats.
3.) It is possible to take a boat ride P-Diddy style. Who knew?
4.) Saving the best for last: One of the recipients of this e-mail has an e-mail address at the MA Department of Education. Yup. We’re talking “@doe.mass.edu“.
Now I am going to delete the e-mail and pretend I never received it.

Dabbling in decoratives is an ongoing obsession. I love having a go at This, That and the Other. . . tackling projects that tickle my fancy, hoarding costumes (for the "Someday" that I own a dress-up tea-house for grown-ups) and hosting themed parties whenever I am not immersed in teaching French and Writing to high school students. In the interest of full transparency, there's something serious you should know: I overuse the ellipsis . . . frequently. Embarassingly enough, it seems to be the punctuation that best captures my stream of thought as it flits off of one subject and towards the next!
