A Cryptic Letter from Lisa

My (mostly on-line) friend Lisa wrote me out of the blue a moment ago. I hadn't heard from her in quite a while. Here's her brief message and my reply.

Lisa's original message in its entirety:
>alex you are my very favorite

My reply:
Lisa,

This message is cryptic enough for me to be left with the following possibilities:

1) Lisa is exercising her already considerably developed sarcasm muscles in preparation for a visit from her family over the xmas holidays.

2) Lisa is doing the email equivalent of 'drunk dialing.'

I'm going to go with #2 here since she flunked the portion of the internet sobriety test where she is required to touch a finger to the 'Shift' key and type in a straight line.  Oh, well.  I really wasn't expecting even this much of a "Happy Holidays" from Lower Case Manager Lisa anyway, so I guess I should be pleased with what I get even if it didn't come with a gift receipt.

Alternatively, given that there was no period, one wonders what the actual end of the sentence might have read. A few guesses:

alex you are my very favorite [reindeer.]

alex you are my very favorite [target of viscious rumors about impotence/embarrassingly small penis size.]

alex you are my very favorite [aspiring super hero.]

alex you are my very favorite [as-yet-unpublished author of a forthcoming book about guitar electronics.]

alex you are my very favorite [meal.]

alex you are my very favorite [composer of really, really awful haikus.]

alex you are my very favorite [subterranean action adventure internet celebrity.]

alex you are my very favorite [subject for psychoanalysis.]

alex you are my very favorite [color.]

alex you are my very favorite [candidate for a clinical trial for laser hair removal.]

alex you are my very favorite [mistake.]

alex you are my very favorite [substitute for a good documentary on the history of candle making.]

alex you are my very favorite [obsessive/compulsive recycler.]

alex you are my very favorite [carbon-based search engine.]

alex you are my very favorite [musical instrument.]

alex you are my very favorite [person to cast in cross-dressing fantasies.]

Or maybe none of the above?  We may never know.

-Alex, Lisa's favorite person to send prank emails.
