over under

My inbox at work currently has 11 emails in it. By the time I get back in the office next Thursday, will there be over or under 300 emails in it? Ladies and gentlemen, place your bets.

For those of you playing the at-home game of Just How Crazy IS Your Inbox?, I have been out of the office for 12 hours. I have 54 emails. That's just 43 emails in less than one day, since I left the office around 11 for my conference. That is a light day, but I'm in meetings all day with people who usually send me emails. Five more business days to go, 2 in meetings, 1 at a field office and 2 on vacation. Keep in mind, I was at the office last night until around 10:30 taking my inbox down to 11... from 400. How bad will it get? Any takers?

Well, no one took a guess, so no one wins. As it turns out, I have the best grasp on how many emails I can expect in a certain amount of time. The number of emails in my inbox this morning? 293. Not bad. Not bad at all.

Where are you off to this time?

In town but out of the office for 3 days, then off to Hawaii for a little R & R. And Mai & Tai.

The R&R part sounds nice - though your inbox will be painful to look at when you return. I'm not even going to try and take a stab at the count.

Does anyone know Dinah's work e-mail?
