When sending email from work, it is a good idea to tell the recipient to remove your address if she intends on forwarding it. I got an email today with an attached video about lemons and how disease producing bacteria live on the rinds and ultimately end up in your drink. The originator of this piece, whom I shall call Ms. Lemon, is someone who works for the State of Alabama DOT. Wouldn't she be interested to know that her email went from person to person and eventually wound up in Massachusetts in the hands of someone she never met. I thought she would be. So I emailed her back:

I'll be re-thinking the whole lemon thing!!EWWWWWWW! Nasty.
Martini Cartwheels to Ms. Lemons
Me too Ms. Lemons. That's just nasty. Do you think it affects limes as well? Thanks for passing that along!
I am patiently awaiting her response.
