the elephant in my room

These days I am having to contend with someone who is there but is pretending not to be.

I wonder what it takes to be so busy that you get 200 emails in your inbox everyday which thereby allows you not to answer a single one of them.

I wonder what it would take me to be so busy that I get 200 emails in my inbox everyday.

I wonder if advertisements encouraging me to enlarge my penis count.


  1. That last sentence is a killer! LOL. I was reminded of someone I know slightly, who sent me a link to their blog (now, alas, defunct), giving me the proud news that he had received over 300 comments in a matter of a couple of weeks. The link to the comments, unfortunately, led to a bunch of messages, all spam and mostly advertising porn. ..

    • Dustedoff, I would be seriously worried if I started getting 300 comments. I think I may stop writing out of shock.🙂

    • Priyanka, My problem is I don’t get any mail except for these ads. And though I’m not a girl, I am a woman.🙂

  2. Banno, I’m sad – I always wanted to ask you for your email address but thought, what’s the use, you’re busy sorting through the 200-odd emails every quarter of the day.
    Hey, I’ve received Viagramail quite often – here I was, stupidly content with my femine status.

    • Desi-at-large, no, thankfully, I don’t get 200 emails every day. My colleague does, or pretends she does.🙂

      I just have to console myself with junk mail.

  3. Eeesh, typo – feminine, I meant to say (while writing, I’d changed my sentence to avoid saying femininity). Email address nahin likha!
