As I have mentioned I love cute stationery and writing letters. Sending postcards lights me up. Applying stamps, dropping notes in the mailbox, picturing the happy recipients–it all makes me smile.
Recently I was yakking with buddy Karen on the phone. She commented that she had gotten my newsy note. I glowed, waiting for her praise.
But NOOOO. She laughed and said, “You have the WORST ever handwriting. I plan to send you a tablet like the kids use in elementary school. You know, the lined stuff that shows how tall to make uppercase letters and how short to do lower case. And you need to close your d’s, b’s, a’s—well, pretty much all your words are too sloppy to read.”
So I sent her another note.
