There was a request for input from alumnae with experience in the area of substance abuse and recovery–one of my favorite subjects. I thought about it and sent off an email “yes, count me in!” to the email address cited in the article.
This was from my iPhone, which as you know, allows for limited keyboard dexterity.
Minutes later I received a return email with that annoying subject line: Delivery Status Notification (Failure).
“Damn,” I thought to myself. “Couldn’t the college have copy-edited the address more painstakingly? Now I’m going to have to call the alumnae office, inform them about the mistake and spend my precious time on their error.”
I’m back at my desktop computer with my mega-monitor scrolling through my inbox. Seeing that message on the big screen ow, I see that I typed in dot E-D-I instead of dot E-D-U.
As Roseanne Roseannadanna would have said, “Never mind.”
