31 Days of 5 Minute Free Writes 2016 - 14: "Mail"
"You've got mail." (For any of you who even remember AOL).
"Here's the mail. It never fails. It makes me want to wag my tail. When it comes, I want to wail MAIL!" (If you've been around a child under the age of five, surely you've been forced into a few episodes of Blues Clues.)
I rather appreciate the personal letter. E-mails, texts, and internet messaging are good, but taking the time to organize thoughts on paper, placing it in an envelope, and applying postage has a more intimate feel. One of my goals for the next year is to send more handwritten letters and cards.
