I like to think of myself as a creative person and someone who looks for creativity in other people as a good sign that we might get along. I do have to give today’s W&C author some credit for stepping outside of the conventional format for how these strange email introductions are usually sent my way with his A through Z approach. Well, actually, it’s more like A through Y since Z is conspicuously absent from his version of the alphabet. For all of his creative prowess, however, I can’t say that this is really the best way to try and get to know someone and the end result is still the same… me = totally confused but highly entertained.
Take a gander at the list below and I think you’ll agree this is a really weird way to introduce yourself to someone, and weirder still are his associative letter choices. I get the feeling this one is what we like to call a “Euro” because of his references to racing, the spelling of the word favourite and his assumption that I would want to talk about and/or know what “french knickers” are. R is for Racing…Rally or F1? You know I’m from Miami dude, how about R is for Rap Artist…Biggie or Tupac? E is for Easter Egg…which is your favourite? What in the world could that possibly even mean? And by far the funniest one - Q is for Question! Isn’t every single thing in this list a question?
Really we could go letter by letter to break down and marvel at the awesomeness of this master list of strange…but I think I’ll just let you guys see for yourself and decide which letters are your personal favourite.
