I forgot how much work goes into writing a letter and mailing it until my son went away to camp. No emails? No! Only postal letters. Compose a hand written letter, find an envelope, address it, and don’t forget a return address. Lick the inside fold of the envelope to seal it. Put a stamp on it, mail it, and it should arrive in 4 days- Seriously?!
Does anyone really know anymore how much it costs to send a letter? Do people still have stamps hiding in a drawer? If not, are there still stamp machines around where I can just get one useful stamp, along a one cent stamp I’ll never use? Please tell me I don’t have to go to the post office, or embarrass myself by asking for a pack or roll of stamps! Let me check the desk one more time. Yes! Found one on top of the pink eraser block I haven’t touched in 5 years!
Not as easy as an email, but the worst of it is over- right? Shit! Where can I find a mailbox? “Siri- is there a mailbox near me?” One pick up? At 5 pm? Damn! Do I still have to pull the small blue door handle of the mailbox -then insert the letter into its mouth- close it; shut it, the then open it again just to be sure it was swallowed up?
Ok, he should get that in 4 days….just as we are picking him up…..Shit!
