The evil midnight modifier what modifies at midnight.

While scanning Craigslist for jobs in Portland just now, I came across this ad for a "Semi-Volatile Organic Chemist".

To Whom It May Concern:

I am writing to you in response to your classified advertisement of May 18th. Please find enclosed my resume, and with it my assurance that I possess several important qualifications for this position. While my resume may not demonstrate an extensive knowledge of chemistry, you may be certain that I am organic (strictly carbon-based), and semi- or indeed fully-volatile.

Thank you for your consideration.

Not until you're done with the first one, young lady.
