So, what happened was this. Little Miss Farty sent me an email from work last night. Because
playing on the internets is so much more rewarding than working she loves me so much. Scroll down to see the picture. I showed it to Mrs F and she said I should send a reply, so I replied "Haha, very funny. Get back to work." Then I hit "send", as you do.
A fraction of a second after releasing the mouse button, I realised that although her email had been addressed to my real name, Outlook had helpfully changed my sender name to "Mr Farty". Thanks, Microsoft. Thanks a fucking bunch.
So the phone rings. "Dad, did you just send me an email as "Mr Farty"?
"Oh. Ok, 'cos I thought my computer had been infected by a virus or something."
"No, no, just my little joke, ha-ha."
"Ok, night-night then, Dad."
"Night-night, sweetheart. Don't work too hard."
And now I'm wondering whether to delete my blog, 'cos how long will it be before she decides, out of curiosity, to google "Mr Farty"?
Update: If my daughter is reading this, remember that there's more than one Mr Farty on t'internets. This one isn't me, it's a complete stranger. Plus, quit slacking and get back to work!
Always check your child's homework
