    Hey there, I don’t mean to be nit-picky, but there’s a grammatical error in your sample email. The sentence after “Hey!” should not end with a question mark, as it is a statement; at least that’s how it looks to me. I apologize if I’m appearing to be a know-it-all or offensive. If there’s any way to delete this comment, please do so. Thank you, and I hope you have a great day!

      By “delete this comment,” I meant to delete MY comment, please! Also, I love this lesson and am definitely going to use it with my students! I should have included that in my original message!
