How spam can make you happier

You don’t have to be a writer or an artist to use creative prompts. Every day I get tons of spam emails that allow me to imagine, for a few moments,  off-the-wall ideas and scenarios.

Try it sometime when you need a mental break. Think about the stories that might have generated these subject lines I’ve recently received—yes, they are all genuine–and if  you find yourself thinking too literally about them, try the old fortune cookie trick of adding “in bed.”
