Zack’s FIRST email

You might recall that Zack finally sent an email the last week of camp. In it, he referred to his previous email to me (unreceived). When he got home, he was disappointed because it told all of what was happening at camp, and that he was happy. Then he realized what happened. He sent it to my email address but using gmail instead of hotmail (yes, some of us still use hotmail).

So I tried an experiment. I emailed the mistaken address, asking if the recipient got an unexpected camp email 2 weeks ago, and if so, did the person still have it? Could they forward it to me?

Within minutes I got an email back from Doug. And he forwarded the email. The saint had saved it and initially tried emailing the camp back to let them know they had the wrong email address, but it bounced (camp emails are one way). The guy made my day. And now he’ll make yours.

subject: hi mom! i barfed!
