Every day when I take the Small Studio orders to be mailed at our little post office, I check my PO Box to see if there is any mail. I got the PO Box so that people who do not use credit cards can mail their order to me. No one has so far. It seems that online ordering is not a problem. The other day, Josh, the mail clerk, started teasing me about being so optimistic every day. He made at least 10 jokes about it that day and every day since. It was cute and funny that he noticed, but it started me thinking. I pay an annual fee for something that is just, well, there. I pay for a gaping hole in the wall. I am optimistic and I do always think that there will be something in there. It must be funny to Josh to see me stand on my tiptoes (my box is on the top row) to peer into the post box and then stick my hand in and feel around the emptiness just to make sure I didn't miss anything. Wouldn't Josh be surprised to see mail in there, maybe lots of mail, maybe decorated mail, maybe weird mail? Maybe something he wouldn't consider mail?
I know, let's have a little competition!
With a prize!
We'll call it "The Empty Mailbox" contest.
Send me something in the mail during the month of February to surprise Josh and his co-workers.
On Friday, the 29th, I will let Josh and the others decide which piece of mail impressed them the most.
