A Little Email Humor ...

Email marketing is a serious topic but every once-in-a-while it’s good to break things up with a bit of humor.

In fact, when I came across this genuine, bona fide email joke, I felt compelled to share it with the world. Thanks to my wife for passing it along …

A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a particularly icy winter.

They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier. Because of hectic schedules, they were unable to coordinate their travel. So the husband flew to Florida on Thursday, and his wife planned to fly down the following day. When he checked into the hotel, he found a computer in his room, so he decided to send his wife an email.

However, he left out one letter in her email address, and without realizing his error, sent the email. Meanwhile, somewhere in Houston a widow had just returned home from her husband's funeral, a minister who was called home to glory following a heart attack.

The widow decided to check her email, expecting messages from relatives and friends. After reading the first message, she screamed and fainted.

The widow's son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen, which read:

To: My Loving Wife

Subject: I've Arrived

Date: January 16, 2007

I know you're surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send emails to your loved ones.

I've just arrived and have been checked in. I've seen that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then!

Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.

P.S. Sure is freaking hot down here!!!!
