Since January 1st, 2003, I have sent 4600 email messages. Is that a lot? It doesn’t come out to that many messages each day, anyhow.
My longest email (counting only words I actually typed, not cut-and-pasted, not quoted, not anything else) appears to be 1,663 words, sent to Kevin as part of a discussion we had on the subject of the role of government in relation to religion. My 2nd longest is 916 words, sent to… ummm… Kevin. On the subject of… the role of government in relation to religion. Maybe I email Kevin too much. OK. Those things sometimes took me several days to write. It was fun. I hope we don’t do it again soon. 🙂
My shortest email was sent to Stephanie, and it contained no text whatsoever, but the subject was “Come call me? n/t” For those of you who aren’t familiar with that abbreviation, “n/t” when used at the end of a subject means that the message contains No Text. So now you know.
How many emails have you all sent? You may have only saved the last couple months of email, so you’ll have to count the number of days and extrapolate, but I’d be interested to know how emaily (new word!) I am compared to the rest of you.
