Mike Davidson (one letter away from Sven’s dad’s name) has decided e-mail takes too long to answer, and that he finds that the more time it will take to answer the e-mail, the less likely he is to do so.

So I’m not alone in this. Hallelujah. My e-mail boxes are filled with unanswered—even unopened—e-mails for this very reason.

Mike’s solution is intruguing. He calls it His idea is that he will answer every e-mail in no more than five sentences.

I wonder, can I do this myself? Can I keep my answers short without seeming overly curt or rude? Would my mom understand? It certainly would make things easier when using the iPhone.

I shall be pondering this solution, and if some of you start receiving shorter e-mail replies, know that this is why.


Mom Expounded Thusly:

Of course Mom would understand! She’d be so thrilled to know her messages to her son had actually been opened and read that anything would suffice! And it just might save her from “repeating” emails since she wasn’t sure the first one made it through! Eh?

I knew you would understand! Now I just have to find the time to answer with just 5 sentences! You’d think my iPhone would make this easier, but I’ve been too busy playing with all its other fun functions.
