November Desktop Calendar Mr. Fox from the talented Caroline Johansson

An email landed in my box this morning: Warner Music executives announce that I've hit the top ten on the music charts in Ireland! Hurray! Oh, wait. This is an email gone astray. It's for Ylvisaker brothers Bard and Vegard, known as Ylvis. Their hit, The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?), is charming the world. 

Congratulations, Ylvis! May your fame help the world learn to pronounce our name.

This is not the first time I've received email intended for another Ylvisaker. Nine years ago today, because of a typo, I received a misdirected business email. I responded, letting the sender know that someone was going to miss a meeting. That sender and I are now married. 

I can't wait to see who shows up next.
