I am so happy today because I received a snail mail from my friend in Japan. She was in my class for many years but now she is living in Japan. I love snail mail. They are so not fast. Dad said the fun is always in the waiting. Yah, but I don’t think he really enjoy waiting in traffic jams..he he. Her snail mail from Japan took 5 days to reach me, while mind to her took 14 days. I thought it would take longer. I am glad we have a better snail mail service than in Japan. I mean, snail mail is supposed to be slow, right? Dad said, we have the best snail mail service in the world. A letter to the other side of town will take a week. I think a real snail would’ve reach there first...he he
We used to send each other little hand-made cards and notes when we were together in the same class. We kinda missed that. So while chatting one day we decided it will be fun to do that again and then snail mail them to each other. So, it was back to glue, cutter, colour papers, magazines and then cut cut, chopped chopped and pasted pasted. It was playschool fun, all over again. I took 5 days to complete mind.
Everything about snail mail is slow. I love it. I had never being inside a post-office before. It was really cool. The people working there were slow (no, I am not complaining) and the queues were even slower. I guess they don’t call it snail mail for no good reasons, right? Then we got the envelope WEIGHTED and then we had to buy these colourful little STAMPS so that we can STICK them on the TOP right hand corner of my enormous brown hand-made envelope.
It was such an adventure, snail mail. Children should try it.
