In My {SPAM} Mailbox

It's a dreary cold rainy day, and I'm stuck home sick. I'm supposed to be resting, but when you work from home and you're a writer, your brain really never shuts down. So I decided to go through some of the emails that had started piling up over the last few days, and then I clicked on my SPAM folder.... (cue the scary music.) I have several general observations:

1.  I AM NOT A MAN. There, I feel better now. Not that there's anything wrong with being a man. I happen to like most men. But, I personally do not have any male anatomy on my body that needs enlarging, so please stop sending me emails suggesting otherwise.

2. As much I would be thrilled to collect/inherit/win millions, we all know I have no long lost uncle who died off the coast of a remote country in Africa and has bloodlines to His Royal Highness, the King of East Scamvilla. DELETE. 

3. No, I really do not want to check out your pictures.

4.  I'd LOVE to retire in Belize, but somehow the website they want me to click on just doesn't look legit: (FYI - I added the xxxx.com so you don't click on it by accident)

5. WOW! Ray-Ban's at 90% off? I'm sure they're the real deal! They must be right? The internet says so.

6. I think this one is my personal favorite. Apparently I have some "deferred email" at Google. Let's just say for a minute, that I actually believed that. Don't you think, and I'm just speculating here, that someone from GOOGLE with a GMAIL account would be the one to email me about this? Sorry crazy.barbara, I'm on to you & no, I won't be clicking on your link.




I think tomorrow, I'll be returning to "work."
