My mom still lives in the age of FWD emails so you can imagine I get a lot of them. Some are inspirational and others are political satire or auntie tales. But mostly they are cautionary, which means they give 'advice'.

These mails clog up my email flow i.e fashion site sales, Twitter add updates, the occasional indirect modeling job, Yahoo personals 0% monthly match alerts and drunk email from exes who are too old to know drunk SMS' are way more In.
