Moue

Potentially the funniest email I've gotten ever. Certainly, all year.

From la stepdaughter:

Hi mer are you going to the cottage with dad and I. If you'er going
then we'll have so much fun and get to be life long friends! Well
we'er already life long friends but close enough. If you do'nt go I
will miss you very much. Oh and I'll feel bad because you'll miss
the candy and the sweets. WOW I'm making my self hungry,and also if
you might not go but do'nt know you are risking to miss the
fierworks. But it's your distion to make. Love you bye.

There's a very serious and very candy-obsessed personality inside that brain. When she was little and used to bang on our student-ghetto coffee table with both hands and look smugly pleased with herself from making that noise... I really would never have guessed she'd grow to be the person she is today. But it does all fit, in retrospect.

I have a feeling it gets weirder from here on in.
