Hi Professor Harris,
Thanks for the great semester (and Beowulf class). I was wondering if you might have my final paper from last semester (or my final paper from Beowulf, Spring 2008)?
Definitely your most recent paper, but probably not the Beowulf one. I won't be in this week or next (I'm on paternity leave, and the baby arrives on Friday). The easiest way to get your paper would be to leave a big manilla envelope with your name on it in my mailbox. When I come in to school, I'll fill it with your paper, and put it back into my mailbox. You can then check periodically to see if it's there.
How's that sound?

Okay Harris, that sounds fine. ...and congratulations!
Sir, you really need to work on your email etiquette. If I didn't know you better, I'd tell you to go jump in a lake. --sh
clearly I need to play more doom and spend less time in the social sphere.

he isn't going to ask me to go jump in a lake, while of course implicitly implying he thinks I should go jump in a lake..
A bit of reverse psychology might be in order. Since he hasn't explicitly told you to jump in a lake, that's obviously what you should do to show Professor Harris the error of his ways.
