I've caught myself twice lately responding to emails without first reading the original. This is a terrible habit. One of these emails was in response to a work holiday party. There was a call put out for the three worst gifts you'd ever received: two real gifts and one fake one. Instead of my worst gifts, I wrote back with three of my favorite gifts: Red Ryder BB Gun, crossbow, and (my fake one) Castle Grayskull. Other people listed gifts like "library book" and "bookmark." If a BB gun and crossbow are the worst gifts I've ever received, people must think that I regularly received sports cars and race horses as gifts.
