Sometimes you have to wonder about automated messages.  I got one today and I thought, “what are you talking about?  Do you even realise what our relationship is?”

And that got me thinking about all the automatic messages we send to people: cutting and pasting heart-felt words of support that we didn’t make up, forwarding emails because we can’t be bothered thinking about what to say, saying LOL because it’s quicker.

So I have decided not to cut and paste, forward without thinking and work on saying something meaningful and if not meaningful, at least proper like “wow, that’s funny” or “I read something today that made me cry”.
