Make Group Chats Great AgainPublished: June 17, 2019
Do you like receiving gifts? Quiddity wants to send you some. Details below.
This Man Repeller article on looking after “future-you” has me thinking about low investment, high reward forms of self care. One of the things giving me joy right now (that happens to be both easy and cheap) is an email chain between three close friends. It contains nothing particularly important and has no particular cadence. What makes it a treat is that we use our—wait for it—work emails.
We’re all familiar with work email inboxes (shop talk, GCal invites, task reminders). Imagine if, amid all that Serious Business speak, you received an email with the subject line “Hot take re: the aperol spritz.” I can tell you from experience, it is thrilling. Read more greatest hits from my email chain below...
While I have you here, may I suggest starting your own email chain? Kick it off right now by sharing the Quiddity newsletter. Sign up for it here. Once you sign up, you'll receive a unique share link that you can send in your inaugural group chat message.
As promised, here are some outtakes from my own email thread:
