Rainy Day Letters

I still have yet to open this wedding save-the-date I received, particularly because when it was handed to me for some reason I thought the envelope was recently licked and I didn’t feel like touching saliva at the time.  I think I’ve waited long enough (dried saliva is muuuch better) and probably should open it. Actually I’m finding I tend to do that with certain letters.  I think I like the idea of hiding an unopened letter in a drawer somewhere to later open it, perhaps brightening a rainy day or something.  I guess letters these days are so much rarer that they kinda feel special.  I still have a letter I wrote to myself when I was in Mexico a few years ago on a missions trip with my church.  Although I think I can almost recall the jist of everything I wrote which kinda deflates the tires of any surprise that opening this letter may have caused.  Not sure when I’ll open it. Come to think of it there are a lot of letters like bills I don’t open immediately so maybe it’s just procrastination after all.

    Is that me? Thanks a lot! Is my saliva really gross compared to your cough particles??
