A while back I set up some email addresses for my sister Cathy. To make sure they were working correctly I had one of them forwarded to my email address. I have been getting copies of those emails ever since.
Why haven't I stopped the forwarding? I don't have a good answer. I usually just delete all mail that is sent to that address, without reading it.
Today, though, there was an email from Cathy's daughter, and it sounded like something I might have gotten from one of my daughters. Cathy and I have laughed about these things, these daughter things, and now I have a kind of proof of the similarities. Not that I will do anything about it. It was eavesdropping. It's time to stop.
