Friday Fun: Serious Discution

No food fun today. Just plain old fun because I got an exciting email that requires some serious discution along with a quick blog note to my mother-in-law because I know she reads the blog every morning!

Dear Granny,

We are so lucky that you live in Texas!

Would you please drive to El Paso to get my 14.7 million? Just meet the diplomatic and he will give you the cash consignment box.

The full original email is below so you have all the information you need and if that darn IMF wasn’t being difficult I think I would already have my money.

I will gladly reimburse you for gas and your driving time to El Paso (as soon as you get the box full of money).

Hurry and call that number because they said I only have 24 hours and the clock is ticking.


Your wealthy daughter-in-law

This was screaming at me in my email inbox Thursday morning!!

      That’s good to know – I’ll hold out for a bigger inheritance since this one didn’t work out. Meanwhile, I think you might want to “turn up” your spam filter if you can. These don’t get to my email very often. LOL
