Golly, I Could Make a Habit of This

Here's another actual email transcript. But it requires a smidge of explanation.

Last Friday The Neighbor was, per usual, over to watch "Battlestar Galactica". She mentioned, when she arrived, that she'd grabbed the wrong keys upon leaving, thus locking herself out of her own house, so she'd need to borrow mine at the end of the evening.

'Cept when I went to the hooks wot hold the keys, hers wasn't there. Which was weird, because I'd used it fairly recently.

One of her kids bailed her out and it was all fine but as she is leaving on vacation in a few days we needed to make sure I had a key and she was going to make another one for me but today I was able to send her this:

Neighb,

I found it. It had fallen into the little thingy that collects bottle caps.

(Ed. Under the hooky googa that holds the keys is a vintage Coke bottle opener and under that is a little whoozy that catches the bottle caps. The Spouse uses it. For beer, mostly, not so much the Coke).

Nayb

I'm so glad it has been found! Whatever compelled it to want to associate with bottle caps?

It was Friday night...the bottle caps were feeling a little rowdy...they invited the key over (because, you know, if you're going to have a big, noisy party it's best to just invite the neighbors) and obviously it was a pretty killer time because the key has been sleeping it off in there ever since.

Unless, of course, it was just waiting patiently because, what with having no actual hands or feet, it couldn't crawl home on its own.

I knew you'd have an explanation for it.

I'm sorry...The Neighbor is witty? I mean, she is but what am I chopped liver or just a free couch to sleep on while you are tossing bon mots with the intelligensia?

Sheesh.

Greeny, it is my duty to provide you with cheerful, uplifting content whenever possible. Especially in lieu of the whole not-being-able-to-invite-you-over-for-a-cocktail-on-the-spur-of-the-moment-thing.

I like saying "intelligensia" with a russian accent and I definitely like how JP added a U to neighbor. Added more colour to my day.

Neighb, yeah, just remember twas me wot called you intelligensia. JP merely said you were witty.

Sfoof, it was a nice touch, wasn't it? (I read stuff as if it's in foreign accents all the time).

The fermented stuff in bottle caps can do that to a key, for sure.
