Today I went over to PO Box to pick up my mail. Funnily enough what I was expecting to pick, tax documents, were not there yet, but instead I had a strange letter. At first I thought it was from one of my fans, but then I opened it.
It was written in terrible handwriting, even worse than mine: which is exceptional. It read “I think of you often. God Bless.” And then was signed in a name that I cannot read. I have a few guesses but at this point I think I would rather not know. A number was attached. I don’t know if I will call it.
I’m not sure if it was for me. Probably not, but then again I have fans across the world, so it could be a troll. I think it was probably just a last ditch attempt at love.
I can respect that.
But hey, it was nice getting a letter? Cough, cough, thanks fans for writing me back. But what was even better about this letter was that the sender had cut off stamps from a previous letter that was addressed to him or her (I really have no idea I cannot read the name of the sender, and additionally I will play my cards safe by not judging so you can’t go crazy on me in the comments sections and say I am sexist, haha take that outraged reader I am already one step ahead of you) and then had taped them to the new letter.
Talk about a postage life hack.
Thinking more about it, it looks hilarious. I mean you save 25 to 40 cents, but then you send the equivalent of a homeless letter. And a love letter at that. Not sure if that was best move. I think I would have put a nice new stamp on my love letter that I was going to send.
You know, make it look all fancy.
But hey, I’m not judging here: Just saying. Not everyone is as well versed in the art of the love letters as I am. But I would still say make the letter legible. That definitely is a good start.
So should I write back? It has a return address. I mean this could be my real shot at love. I might not want to blow this opportunity.
But if I choose to not write back, at least I feel loved. I now can tell everyone that I got a love letter.
