Not so perfect, not so young

Out of the blue

I don't enjoy terse, abrupt emails. I don't mean ones from a friend quickly confirming when to meet for coffee. I mean ones from colleagues or superiors that are, or should be, professional in nature.

I admit, some people are very busy. I propose a solution: many people hate emoticons, but I really wouldn't mind if they were used as frequently as punctuation. If you don't have the time to use verbal 'cordialities' such as "hello", at least give me a smiley face. Smiley faces would go a surprisingly long way to making me happy, as far as email is concerned.

I'll be honest. I take the small stuff too seriously LOTS of the time.
