Concluding Your Correspondence

When ending a letter or an email, you may find it pleasing to add a nice little flourish that lets the reader know they have reached the end of your writing.

I myself am sometimes inclined to end a blog post with some sort of signoff.

Seeing as you can only use "Best Regards" or "Sincerely" so many times before people start thinking you aren't that sincere, or really aren't sending them your truly best regards, I thought I'd give you some options to break up the correspondence-concluding monotony.

01. I Like Gravy,
02. Someday I Hope To See You Naked,
03. Smell My Finger,
04. I Still Haven't Forgotten About That Ten Dollars You Borrowed From Me,
05. In Prison,
06. Happy As Possible With All Things Considered,
07. Boogers,
08. Catch Baseball Fever,
09. May God Not Smite You Down,
10. Jerry,


Best Regards,


Splotchy

J.D. said...

I say "I like pie".

I like pie,

J.D.

:D

FranIAm said...

Personally, I like go with something like...

"looking forward to having you kiss my ass."

Manx said...

You can't go wrong with a Bart Simpson "Get bent".

Barbara Bruederlin said...

"Pull my finger" works well as an alternative to number 2.

Dr. Monkey Von Monkerstein said...

I can't wait to use one of those.

BeckEye said...

All very nice. How about...

Now I'm off to surf porn,
Dale

Well, that's how he always signs his emails to me, anyway.

No, I'm not talking about him behind his back. I know he reads your blog!

Splotchy said...

pj, very nice!

j.d., yeah, but who doesn't like pie!

franiam, I think that offering instead to kiss the reader of your letter's ass is so much sweeter.

manx, it has a nice punkiness to it.

barb, I use that so much in daily life, I never thought of putting it down on paper.

dr mvm, I want details if ya do!

beckeye, that's funny, dale always signs his notes to me "Almost done masturbating,". I kid, I kid!

Dale said...

Beckeye and Splotchy,

Okay, I'm done now. It was good. Now, I sign off with, sniff the glove.

Do it.

Splotchy said...

dale, consider that glove sniffed (from a distance)!

Wonderful list! and wonderful commenters' additions! I'll add:

Blow me,
Delia

Catherinette Singleton said...

Know what's nice about those? You could also leave them on an answering machine and just add "call me" at the end.

Splotchy said...

d, that's a wonderful signoff!

cs, I don't know that I would have the cojones to use some of the items in the list, but I think I would very much enjoy saying "I Like Gravy" on someone's answering machine.
