mail makes my life.

I love getting mail. Maybe it's because that technology is so normal, that getting an actual, physical letter trumps an email.

I don't know.

It also reminds me when I had a pen pal. We've all done that when we were young. Because it was super cool. Because sending letters was cooler than actually talking.

And because mail is just cool.
The excitement of seeing it.
The excitement of tearing the envelope open.
The excitement of battling the tape that seals it closed.
The excitement of unfolding it.
The excitement of reading the letter.

I know that when I'm older, and have my own house, and have my own kids, I'm going to hate it. Because when you're older, mail = bills that need to be paid.

And I also know because my mom hates getting the mail. <3 Fi
