AMonkey'sUncle: It's email. Write like ee cummings if you want. You're not being graded on grammar or punctuation!?


I tend to judge people based on their spelling, grammar and punctuation. I doubt that I'm the only one who does this.

I'm sorry, but "feeling breathless" reading badly punctuated email does not even compare to the breathlessness of "Episode 18 - Penelope" from Ulysses.

Reading "Penelope" is like falling rapidly down hill tumbling over and over and over inside a barrel or truck tire unable to stop for farking miles and *never* being able to catch your breath while another part of you is simultaneously skydiving naked from the edge of space without an oxygen mask and when you hit atmosphere the wind whips around your dangly bits oh yes oh yes oh yes oh yes.

Unfortunately you did not use the Oxford comma. Try not to abrade your knuckles on the floor on the way out.
