Entering the room immediately put me in a fiesta mood. The room buzzed with laughter and excitement as we stood in the buffet line waiting to fill our plates with Mexican fare.

Have you ever composed an email with the best of intentions only to have it received the wrong way by the intended recipient? That happened to me not long ago. I was asked by one (via email) to comment on my experiences with some particular teachers. I replied (via email) with some positive remarks about the teachers in question and added a couple of comments of my own. The recipient of the email read more into my comments than I intended and walked away from that email deeply offended and very upset with me. Emails can be tricky things. Sometimes, people read into emails something other than what the author intended.

Not far from base housing a corn field provided certain field mice a pleasant home for the spring and summer months. In early October, just after the first freeze, these furry little creatures sought warmer shelter indoors and inevitably, one or two found its way into our home.
