I have two fancies. I show my dogs. And I write. Of course, the second is more of an obsession, but both subjects fill my inbox. The problem? Both subjects have very similar lexicons. For example, I see the subject heading “stacking”. I think they’re talking about stacking a dog so the judge can go over it. But, no. When I open the email, it’s actually about stacking books. There’s nothing wrong with it, it’s just like expecting food to taste a certain way when you put it in your mouth. If it tastes different than you expect, sour instead of sweet, etc. It might not be bad, but it’s–surprising.
Both my interests have newsletters. Both have “Bitches.” one being Smart and Trashy and the other being actual female dogs. Many of my wring friends have the same first names (and sometimes similar last names) to my dog friends.
And then there’s my own failing memory, (see The Screw-Up)
I suppose a solution would be to have two different email addresses, but I can hardly remember to check one, so I guess I’ll have to live with the confusion. Just please don’t be offended if I ask about your bitch….
How ’bout you? Got interests that confuse? I’d love to hear about them.:-)
