Nostalgic #6

I have loved being able to look back at my old posts for this one day a month.  I need to do it more often.  Shaunacey  had a great idea that she shared during our weekend "Girls Night In" Google Hangout.  While I'm at it, I'll just say I might as well link up with her today for her Mondays of Gratitude because I'm GRATEFUL for the idea she gave me. Or that I stole from her. Whatever.


Anyway, it got me thinking, why aren't I using more of my old content more often???  So today will be the last formal "Nostalgic Series" post.  You can expect a little more random doses of what I use to write in the future.  Just because I can.

This was one of my favourite posts just because it is soooo very typical of Dan and my relationship.  You can read the original posts here with the comments.

A conversation over email yesterday with my husband nearly resulted in our divorce. He's always getting on my case about skimming emails. Come on, I'm a high school teacher, how do you think I get through so many essays. Kidding. Kinda. So I skim emails, my bad. Well I guess after today you can add being a bad typer to the same list. Apparently I type without proofreading. Here is the email conversation that transpired between us. See if you can spot the error. Hint *it's in the very first email.

BAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH!
I can see the headline in the StarPhoenix: Type nearly causes divorce.
Meant "without" you.
I also called you a crouch.
Meant "grouch".
I see my next blog forming.

Ok.  But now I’m back to really liking you.  So expect some hugs and kisses.



As a side note, I would like to point out that skimming & scanning is a literary strategy and I use it quite often in my work. Maybe I should start using it less in my correspondance with my sweet hubby.....

Linking up with Garay Treasures, Thinking out Loud, the Pick, Thoughts for Thursday
