No, really, I was *always* this way.

Pixar Tom just sent me something I sent him years ago. I should probably raid my old email files and find something to get him back.

The message, as sent back by him:

I've mentioned in the past that, when I read old mail of mine, I tend to 
find it funny.  This is not because I'm actually funny, but because I 
share my own sense of humor.

For the most part, I also share your sense of humor.  To wit, a message 
from angelbob+@andrew.cmu.edu:

My response at the time was the same as my response upon rediscovering 
the message today (though without a literal apple):

through my nose...
