Look, typos happen to the best of us. I once referred to myself as the "Director of Pubic Relations" in a press release. Thankfully no one called me on it.

D'oh! Why does Billy loathe splashing water at his turds? Mommy and Daddy think it's great fun!
I hesitated to post the email because, like I said, I do like the eBeanstalk folks. But on July 19, I sent this:

About me: I'm 42 and added another gherkin to our pickle party of a family. My husband Chuck, our 9-year-old Junior, our 6-year-old Everett, our toddler and I live in a town in Connecticut I affectionately call Mulletville Lite (aka my childhood hometown). My friends call me Nutjob, and they're right. In my husband's spare time he dresses up as a Viking and chases ghosts (and I'm the nutjob?). When I'm not busy working as a graphic designer, I lie in a ball in the corner.
