Smacksy Sunday Link: Wendi Aarons

The Smacksy Back Office

You guys all know Wendi Aarons. A couple of years ago, someone forwarded you one of those “funny” viral email things that you usually delete without opening because it generally involves real letters that kindergartners wrote to God or that picture of the darling kitten that has her paws in the air with the gun pointed at her. This time the person that sent you the email was one of those people that never forwards anything so you thought it must be good and you actually opened the email and you read it and it was funny, so funny that you forwarded it, and you never do that. And then you received it from eighteen other people including your mom who still has an AOL account and you didn't know she even knew how to forward. That wonderful, viral, phenomenon was "An Open Letter to James Thatcher, Brand Manager, Proctor and Gamble" aka The Always Letter and it was written by Wendi Aarons.

Wendi’s blog is (That’s just good branding.) She was kind enough to have me over there with a guest post on her blog last week while she was off getting her aloha on. She's a lovely hostess.

Wendi writes the funny – like her instant classic Coke-Dependency and one of my recent favorites, her short and sweet Fourth of July post. So, you should absolutely be reading her whole deal, especially since you’re old friends and everything.


  1. How did I spend four decades without knowing you? Your humor and sarcasm touches me where it counts - right in my belly laugh.

    Forwarded emails must be at least that funny for me to read and forward.

    Real friends don't let friends read cutesy poems. Real friends make friends laugh until they pee their pants.

    And then laugh at them for peeing their pants.

  2. Keep in mind, the Sweet 35 and the Edge 80 ($300) can only be used
    in Lensbaby lenses. The D800's FX-format CMOS sensor triples the resolution of its predecessor,
    the 12. The D800's image best quality is unexcelled, also
    it weighs much lower than any other Nikon full-frame electronic digital
    camera actually made, making it unquestionably one of the
    most effective DSLR to hold if you need to hold a DSLR
    within field.
