I went from no thoughts last week—big thanks to Katri who was kind enough to lend me her thoughts free of charge (what a gem!)—to tons of random thoughts about mail. Here are a few of them:
[For the record, I completely understand if and when penpals no longer want to write me. I just ask that they let me know, instead of not writing ever again. Send me an email! Subject header: You're too creepy for me. I won't be offended.]
3) Seriously, what happens to letters that go missing? Where do they go? Is there a black hole specifically designed for letters? I write to my 10-year-old niece and recently a letter from her went missing. [As an aside, we live in the same city. I understand, kind of, when mail goes missing across countries, but the same city? C'mon Canada Post.] As a result, we went a few months without correspondence. When we started writing again, I made a joke about how maybe there was a monster who ate the missing letter. My niece responded with this drawing:
Now tell me that isn't the cutest mail-related drawing you've ever seen. So there you have it. According to my niece, letters go missing because of cannibalistic envelopes. So next time you drop an envelope in the mailbox, ask yourself this: did I just drop a hannibal cannibal envelope into an all-you-can-eat buffet?Screw being Letter Botz #43! I should be Letter Botz NUMERO UNO because, with the exception of the mail I got this week, I caught up on my outstanding mail pile. HUZZAH! I'll have to get a bionic wrist and hand, but that's a small price to pay to get out of my August/September incoming. HUZZAH! [though, I probably shouldn't get too uppity...I realized this week I've been using most of my moustaches upside down for months. Eh. *shrugs* You win some, you're a dumbass in some others.]

And that's it from me.
Q: What does a turkey like to eat on Thanksgiving?
A: Nothing; they are already stuffed.
Happy Canadian Thanksgiving anyone!
