emily != email

I’m a web developer. I spend a lot of time writing code to make web sites work. Sometimes that involves making sign up forms, or newsletter-sending-modules, or I-need-to-change-my-account forms. For example:
First name:
Last name:
Email address:

Plus a bunch of back-end code to actually process that data, etc. Anyway, moral of the story: I type the word “email” a lot. The other day at work, I was filling out a form like the one above, to test it. And in the “first name” field, I was meaning to type “emily” but “email” came out instead.

Bet you guys didn’t consider that when you named me, did you, parentals??

    Dear Emaily

    When you were named, the word email didn’t even exist!  However, it portmanteaus just finely, don’t you think?
