I received a letter the other month... in an envelop without any stamps... And inside a little note " Dear Flavie, I can't wait to see you soon! lots of love". On the envelop, instead of a real stamp, was an ink stamp and a star sticker...
My address and the note were written with a colour pencil and it all looked a bit odd but sweet! I knew it was from my friend who has moved to California and was due a visit in the UK. But still I found that a bit unusual in our era of electronic communication facilities!! It was touching, if not a bit odd... So I contacted my friend (via one of this very easy way of electronic communication and asked about this note...). Her reply was a charming little story.
She explained that she was playing with her 6 year old daughter at sending pretend letters to friends. So, in her role play, she wrote that note to me, put it in the envelop and put it in her mail box, at her house.
She didn't realise that it will go further than her mail box! She went on explaining that in California, the post is brought as well as taken from your personal post box. So when the postman found this envelop in the letter box, he took it to send it all the way to the UK. And then one day it arrived at our house.
How nice from the postman to send this letter all the way to me, evidently seeing it was from a child! It was very warmin to think this letter made it all the way to the UK, even without a stamp... And how exciting to receive a paper letter!!
