Maybe an April 1 joke first, then a segue to the serious sale?

Make it a kickstarter project.

Finished product: a video of Paul pressing the "submit" button on the payment page.
Stretch goal: additional video showing auto-pay being set up.

Subject:  Boots are all leaving, I need to sell stuff

Contents:  The boots got into a huff and all left for Idaho.  April Fools!  But I do need to sell some stuff quick so.......


Mainly trying to head off the concern that any email people get today might be viewed as an April Fools thing so by getting that out of the way people will take your real message more seriously.

Oh!

Yeah, good point.  I don't have anything wild.  Just another boring day of trying to get all the things to work out!

I realize I'm a total dinosaur, but what's a "Deet"?

ETA - if it's your personal made-up word, that's totally allowed - if the Bard can do it, so can you!

Thanks! Wow, it's been around since 1986 - I guess I just don't frequent the type of literature that uses it (I do read the odd thing more current than Shakespeare...)

I always thought it was just a silly word.  I'm surprised it's in a dictionary.
 
It looks like it's time for me to write you a reality check! Or maybe a tiny ad!
