Better Late Than Schmutzy…

Schmutzy: dirty or grimy

returned Christmas letterIn this case, the all encompassing Holiday letter I had sent in December 2011 was both. This particular one was returned to me today, almost nine months late and after being spilled with water. 

What was it doing for eight and a half months? Did it follow me to Cape May, NJ and dip itself in the ocean? The letters UTF were written on the front. Unable to Forward. Probably because SOMEONE GOT IT WET AND COULDN’T READ THE ADDRESS. The recipient is at the same location.

Oh, the places it’s been! Wouldn’t it have been fun (and probably illegal) to have installed a little camera in the return address to record the missive’s adventures?

As for now, it’s a reminder for me to jot down a few humorous notes for the 2012 Holiday letter. Maybe I should consider sending that one via email?
