One of my email accounts (I have quite a few!) is made up of my first two intials and my surname. Evidently there are a lot of CLTaylors in the world as I frequently receive email not meant for me. This one, which I got this morning, made me laugh:
Toi is going home after lunch today. We are on our way to the hospital now so mom can help
get her home. She is doing well and had a good night. expelled more gas and a little more
BM. still having some gas pains, but walking helps. gotta go will talk later, call toi's house.
Love Ya all sooooooooooooo much........
Now obviously I didn't laugh because someone's relative is ill - I laughed at the mental image of some little old lady farting non-stop as she walks along down the hospital ward as her family whoops and cheers in support.
Step *Pfffffffft* Step *Parp* Step *Plbphplbphplbph.*
(yes, I do have an immature sense of humour!)
The email below, received several months ago and from a different sender (and meant for a different CLTaylor) is rather more worrying:
TEN YEARS HAS PASSED AND I HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO COMMUNICATE WITH MY DAUGHTER. YOU AND CARLA ARE THE ONLY LINK THAT I HAVE TO HER. TWO MONTHS AGO A DOOR WAS OPENED WHEN YOU SPOKE WITH HER. ARE YOU GOING TO KEEP AN OPEN LINE OF COMMUNICATION WITH HER?
WORDS CANNOT EXPRESS THE TREMENDOUS PAIN THIS HAS CAUSED FOR ALL OF US ESPECIALLY ME. EVERY PARENT WOULD LIKE TO KNOW THAT THEIR CHILD IS ALIVE AND WELL AND HEAR FROM THEM.THE NEXT TIME YOU COMMUNICATE WITH HER LET HER KNOW TEN OF MY BIRTHDAYS HAVE PASSED AND SHE DIDN'T ACKNOWLEDGE A SINGLE ONE.
WE KNOW THAT SATAN HAS BEEN LOOSED AND HAS ATTACKED EVEN ARE FAMILY.
"Satan has been loosed and has attacked even are (sic) family" - Yikes!!!
