I precisely needed to appreciate you once more

16 November 2012

PG hadn’t consulted the spam bucket lately and was pleased to find another minor masterpiece when he did:

I precisely needed to appreciate you once more.

I am not sure what I could possibly have done in the absence of those opinions revealed by you about such a situation.

It had been the fearsome situation for me personally, nevertheless encountering the very professional avenue you handled the issue made me to leap for joy.

  1. It _is_ nice to be appreciated, isn’t it…

    Sometimes I wonder if some of these opuses (opi?) aren’t honest fan mail as translated by Google, but the realist suspects someone is getting paid by the word (or letter?) to practice their English.

    • You may be right. Precisely = really. Needed = want. Appreciate = thank. Once more = again.

      “I really want to thank you again.”

    • The plural of “opus” is “opera”, according to Latin grammar.

      According to English grammar, IMHO it is “opuses”.

  2. PG, reading your posts makes me to leap for joy every day. No spam required.

  3. I second, Bridget! I have no idea where I would go without your blog, PG. I’d wander the internet at a total loss! 🙂

    In terms of Spam, sometimes we’re having a hard day, and Spam is always there for us, telling us we are special, whenever we want a little boost. I say: Bless you, Spam.

  5. Gold Dust!

    I’ve been getting a lot of “mean” spam lately. Nasty, provocative garbage. Interesting strategy to get me to click their links. Doesn’t work, but it is interesting.

  6. NPR commentator and author Andrei Codrescu had a funny commentary on spam email many years ago. (I haven’t listened to NPR for at least five years, so it was a while.) At one point he read something similar in nature to the above and said, “I know freeform poets who would give their left arm to write something like that.”


  7. It’s like the words of a lover whose first language is Serbo-Croation:

    “I precisely needed to appreciate you once more.”

    Stop talking and let’s get down to that appreciation thing. Baby.
