A Classic E-Mail From My Mother

A typical e-mail from my mom (subject line only, no content) that I thought would be worthy of this community. So random, so succinct:

Just ate one of of the clementines you brought home. They tasted of moth balls!!!!

Reminds me of William Carlos Williams' poem, "This is Just To Say:"
I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox
and which
you were probably
saving
for breakfast
Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
