can we all just agree that "emails" somehow seems wrong?

i've been sending them since way back when all email addresses looked like this: <483759284736-3019275837@compuserve.com>, (thanks for letting me use your email address, mom!) but somehow "emails" still seems incorrect. like saying "deers" or "cattles" or something equally erroneously pluralized. that is all.

prolly 'cause "mail" is plural. I use "email" as plural as well.

I agree, but I think the word is like "zebra" for most people. You can say "zebras," and it might sound a little funny but no one will really notice it except you.

oh, sorry t.a.g. you're right, you do. anti-spambot technology and all that.

hi brother bear! i'm pretty sure that "zebras" is the proper plural form for multiple little stripeys.

ps: i just got the first season of meerkat manor on dvd! now there is some cuuute.

<483759284736-3019275837@compuserve.com>, (thanks for letting me use your email address, mom!) You are so welcome! That e-mail address was so revolutionary, ya know. The magic of dial-up, too.

yeah, dialup was awesome fast when the alternative was snail mail!

oh yeah, and for the record, brother bear was totally right about that zebra thing. he's a smart one.
