My friend Kristin sent me the following email. She and her boyfriend Charlie are spending the holidays with his parents in Lake Forest, Illinois, and this email summed up their travel schedule.
Date: Wednesday, December 13, 2006 10:34 AM
To: undisclosed recipients
Subject: Fwd: send to your mom
Please read the email below. I asked Charlie to look it over and send it to his mother so she had our schedule for the week. My intention was that he ERASE THE TOP PORTION IN CAPS and then forward it on, but he did not read it... he just sent it.
And you all wonder why she hates me...
