One of the things I miss most about working in an office are those reply-all email threads that morph into something entirely different. Is there a term for this sort of thing yet? There should be. Basically, someone sends out a relatively mundane email. Someone responds with something witty or whatever. And things kind of grow and tumble from there. By the end of the thread, you’ve got a bunch of colored lines, maybe some random

Seriously, I want to want in a workplace like that. And I completely agree with Christen – that will be the BEST baby picture for the senior slideshow in eighteen years!!
That is FARKING hilarious!
I have had a rough day. This just made me so, so happy. Thank you for humiliating your child for me. Love, Me.
You think this is humiliating? Wait until I post the videos I took of him directing human traffic in Disney World!
Oh wait. No. That was my brothers and me.
Thanks, SCBOB! ;)
