I'm pretty crap at keeping in touch with people...

...but my brother is a master. He is a lecturer and researcher of evolutionary biology at Dalhousie Uni in Nova Scotia, Canada. I get an email from him, say, every six weeks. The last two were replies to mine which read "Too busy to reply".
And, yes, he is busy. However, he is also crap.
And a dead-set genius. He's got the whole email-replaces-the-letter vibe down! He is da bomb at eventually writing a real page-turner that keeps you satisfied for the whole six weeks until the next one.

I received an email from him today.

In entireity it reads:

Okay, I'll go first:
Erm...We have a new couch.


See?! Brevity IS the soul of wit.
