Just now though, I saw the subject on a note in my inbox, and I realized that it could also be taken to mean a classically stereotyped version of a martial arts battle-cry. Like this: hiiiiyyyaa!!!
I hope nobody has thought, over the years I've used that subject, that I was challenging them to battle, or virtually karate-chopping them, or something! Gosh, how awkward.
So now the Dilemma For The Day is: do I go back and email an apology to everyone I've ever written to, or do I just let it slide, hoping they understood what I meant??
