5:45 PM -- Okay, maybe I'm a sucker for spam. I actually have a taste for bologna, too, but that's another story. Anyway, sometimes the messages that hit my inbox -- the ones asking for some kind of help -- are so gosh darn weird I wonder:
1) Is this a real person who is really wanting a reply?
2) If so, are they six years old?
