Please Mr. Postman

There's just something about getting something in the mail!

Let it be known that I'm an old-fashioned person. I don't much like to be connected to a cell phone or a computer or anything. This may be a downfall, but it's mostly just a valid preference. Along with these grounds come a love of getting things in the mail.

It just seems romantic or something. Going to the mail box, peeking in, and realizing there's something with your name on it! And if anyone else opens it, it's illegal! It really is all yours! I guess that point makes me smile.

And the waiting. Many can vouch that longing is the best part of any transaction. Agonizing, but the best.

The manilla envelopes. The red, white, and blue old-fashioned ones. The brown paper packages tied up in string! It's just the best. So I charge each of you to write a good old-fashioned letter (long hand) to somebody you care about in the coming days. 44 cents later, you won't regret it. And maybe you'll even get something back!

'Til next time!

  1. I totally agree! Snail mail is a dying art form. On another note, you've heard The Carpenter's version of Please Mister Postman, right?
