I’m trying to be all healthy and active and whatnot

I Read A Lot of Internets

A glance at my inbox

From: Mom
To: kdiddy

[insert bright yellow background and animated .gifs]

Chubby text, all center-justified. Nonsensical anecdote about God tongue-in-cheekly punishing Adam and Eve by giving them children, some pictures of babies, and random all caps sentences: BUT THERE IS REASSURANCE IN THE STORY; THINGS TO THINK ABOUT; ADVICE FOR THE DAY.

And, of course, it ends with, “Quick, send this on to ten people within the next five minutes. Nothing will happen if you don’t, but if you do, ten people will be laughing.” Har har.

  • why aren’t we allowed to ground parents?

    Dad, if you send me one more anti-Hillary Clinton email, i’m taking away your computer for 2 weeks.

    I have a friend whose only emails to me consist of shit like that. She never emails me to say hello, it’s always stuff like “AMERICA IS TEH GREATEST OF ALL COUNTRIES” chain letters and such. Also a lot of “THIS IS TEH TRUE MEANING OF FRENDSHIP.”

    I want to tell her to knock that shit off, but I can’t think of a polite way to do it. So instead I just grit my teeth and hit delete.

    I finally got my father to stop sending me that crap by refuting every point they made. I never convinced him of anything (nor did I expect to), but I was enoughof a PITA that he removed me from his “right-wing-nutjobs-and-people-who-need-to-be-converted” list.
