A Suggestive Homophonic E-Mail Address
In preparation for the class I will be teaching beginning September 3, I recently phoned one of the campus bookstores to place the order for the book I will be using. The bookstore representative gave me a great laugh that I am still chuckling about. After I gave him all of the information about the book, the course number, and the number of students registered, he asked for my e-mail address to send me a confirmation. In addition to my campus e-mail address, I gave him my personal e-mail address (which is a rocketmail account). He promptly responded, "I'm guessing that is not the 'm' 'a' 'l' 'e' spelling."
