Email Informalizer Button

Makes a few typos for you so it looks like you wrote it faster.

My emails are always perfectly spelled and perfectly punctuated. I read them several times before sending and apply semicolons and after-punctuation spaces perfectly correctly, and I fix all typos I notice.

Quite frankly, no one else I know does this and I bet my emails look pretty square. Especially in a quick back-and-forth conversation where the other person's like "you have to se theawesome vacation photos i gotback1" and I'm like "Really; Please, With Respect To The Photographs, Allow Me To View Them"

There should be an "Informalizer" button which would pop up a input box asking me how many errors I would like to introduce; the computer would then alter - UNBEKNOWNST TO ME - the email in that many different places - and then send it! (most errors should involve commas, spaces, or the word "the")

When the other person replies and quotes my message, I will realize for the first time that I made an unanticipated typo, and it'll be just like when a less careful person makes a typo and doesn't realize it until later.
