Emails that Drive Me Crazy, i.e. FORWARD or DIE (those nasty request to forward to ten or more or you will die!)

Emails that Drive Me Crazy, i.e. FORWARD or DIE (those nasty request to forward to ten or more or you will die)

Once in a while I take the chance to save my life — from doom — but I usually ignore these request.

Today it looks like rain, again. I’m on the computer and I am happy to report that I have finished my words for today. I have also managed to visit a site I need stay away from — that’s right Facebook is the one.  It sucks me in like a black hole and keeps me there more than the allotted time I have set aside for my visit.  Today I spotted this cute picture that made me chuckle. Actually this picture bought a hand slapping the knee experience to my day which prompted me to take the time to share this picture with all of you. I think you will get a chuckle out of this too. The fact that someone took the time to do this . . . well, all I can say is hats off to that someone. I appreciate you.

Are you at risk of death from not forwarding things to your friends? Have you actually died from this? I guess the answer is no as you are reading this. Me neither. In fact, I’ve had no bad luck – under the caution of bad luck to come or a promise that a Genie will be granting my wish — and it seems that the next day is the same as the day before.  Hoe-Hum — boring me with these requests Y’all, to death!

I’ll be reading an interesting poem or some thoughtful prose on something that I think is cute or funny and  immensely enjoying it and then it reaches the end of the email and I’m let down. My smile turns to a frown and my foot taps the floor and I say out loud ”Oh for Pete’s Sake” and I wouldn’t forward that email for all the tea in China. And, Y’all, I like my tea, don’t ya know. I can drink half my weight in iced-tea during the summer months. Non-sweetened with extra lemon, hot poured over ice packed into a tall glass, so refreshing. Sip, sip, sip.

My suggestion: skip the forward and sip some iced-tea instead.

  1. So many places. I used Facebook for family. Now I gather 500 writers with me. I must go read and show them I’m alive and well still. I like the internet. Make it easy to communicate. Easy to over communicate also. I like your thoughts. The ice tea does sound good.
