Have you ever had one of those experiences where you send an email (usually to someone you admire/look up to/want to like you)that you meant to be light and funny, but then after re-reading it (after it’s been sent, of course) you start to think that maybe it’s not funny after all, and it could certainly be read in such a way that the recipient would come away from it with the strong impression that you’re rather strange/clueless/annoying/pathetic/all of the above?

Yep, going through that right now in my own personal corner of Neurotics R Us. Sheesh.
