overstock
For months now, I’ve been sitting on three Gmail invitations. I haven’t been hoarding them purposefully; I’ve already offered them up to any and all takers, online and off, and simply haven’t been able to unload them. Such is life.

This morning, I noticed that, instead of three unwanted invitations sitting there, I now had four. Meaning Gmail-boss Google saw fit to bulk up my supply.

If I can’t shed three of the suckers, what makes them think I can dispose of four??

It’s not unusual to get a refill on the invites, especially when you’ve run out or gotten down to only a couple. But at that time, Google would resupply with a half-dozen or so extras. What is the purpose of bolstering the invite cue by just one?

Anyway. I’m sure just about everyone out there who wants a Gmail address already has gotten one; thousands of them are up for grabs at any given moment. But in case there are any stray Gmail-less souls pining away out there, I’m putting mine up for grabs. They’ll make great stocking stuffers!

In the past, I’ve tried to extract something from readers in exchange for an invite; I’ve learned of the futility of that. So this time, just leave your first name, last name and email address (read that last part again, and a third time too — Google’s requirements, not mine) in the comment box below. First come, first served get the four Gmail invitations.
