Giving an email the subject line: "SURPRISE!!!" is a sure way to make the recipient
(a) almost stick it straight in the spam bin, stopping only when she recognises the sender's name.
(b) get all excited, only to be hugely let down when she reads the rest.
Full text of the email (from my mother, in case we haven't guessed by now):
Hello love,And I thought it was a surprise for me. For ME! *sniff*
I just had a wonderful surprise. I was watering my tomatoes and the phone rang and it was my friend Linda, and we had a lovely chat. I wasn't expecting anyone to call, so isn't it great when these things happen? PS: Here's a recipe for lentil casserole [redacted].
(Although lentil casserole could be pretty surprising under the right circumstances, I guess.)
