Waiting for the mailman
In the days of email, texting, cell phones, and the internet, there's seems to be no real need for the mail anymore. People can see e-cards and e-vites, you can get your newsletters, magazines, and coupons online, and when was the last time someone sent you a letter or a postcard? When I was younger, I loved to check the mail when I got home from school. I had 4 penpals and subscribed to 3 magazines and I was constantly getting goodies in the mail from family members. I no longer get a lot of stuff like that, but I do get a lot of coupons and free samples and I really enjoy that. And even though I know I won't be receiving a long lost check, a new magazine I forgot I subscribed to, a postcard from a friend I haven't seen in years, or a JC Penney's catalog I didn't request, but I still get excited every time I see that white truck turn onto our street.
