Here it is...

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing in response to your search for a Planned Giving and Major Gifts person.  I find that in my life I plan to give a lot. 
I plan to give my husband a kiss when he comes in the door when I am in a good mood.  If I am not in a good mood I 
often plan to give him a sock in the kisser instead.  It doesn't stop there though!!  I plan to give the lady at the  YMCA a 
piece of my mind because she was on the treadmill for longer than the allotted half hour.  I plan to give my baby a bath 
this evening before bedtime.  As you can see the list goes on and on!  I think I would be PERFECT for this position!!

I also plan to answer any further questions you may have about my qualifications as well!! (SEE!??...PERFECT!)


PS.  Dude, I am TOTALLY into major gifts as well.
