Email Greetings From My Mother or McSweeney’s Rejection Letters?

1. “LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVe, oodles-style.”

2. “Appreciate your giving us a shot with this one, but I’m afraid we’re not going to use it.”

3.  “You are so very very beautiful inside and out!”

4. “I’m afraid I’m going to pass.”

5. “Love love love ya, kiddo.”

6. “Thanks for the look.”

7. “Oh, my dear, I haven’t conversed with you in much too long a while! Culpa mea, culpa tua, culpa tempo fugit?”

8. “Good to see your trying again, though.”*

9. “Love with a capital Hug.”

  1. The one with the typo is the most painful, for several reasons.

    I can add a few (none from my mother):
    “Thanks for giving us the opportunity.”
    “Thanks for considering us.”
    “Appreciate the shot at this one, but I’m afraid I’m going to pass.”
    “We’ll pass; thanks anyways.”

You are truly great.
