Viagra opened a channel

OK, pull the noggin from the gutter — and, yes, I admit that I helped put it there with the headline. (No shame. No shame.) The funny ways the world works sometimes: Last week I got an out-of-the-blue e-mail from a girlfriend who I haven’t heard from or seen in some three or more years. But the missive wasn’t a “Hey, how are you doing?” kind of thing. It was a plug for cheap Viagra. I chuckled. And wrote back, telling her I wasn’t interested in the Rx, but I’d love to know how she’s doing and what she’s up to.

Another round of e-mails: “I’ve been hacked!” she exclaimed in mass mailings to, what I’m guessing, was everyone in her e-mail address book. Somehow I knew this. I didn’t expect that she was now peddling prescription drugs in an e-mail free-for-all.

But now I’ve found out she’s working on a novel, freelancing and looking into MFA programs. (Of course, I told her to check out Goddard.) Thanks, hacker, wherever you are. And, no, I’m still not interested in your pills, or get-rich-quick schemes or lottery wins. But thank you, nonetheless.
