Dear you,

Everybody likes getting mail.  I love getting mail. As a child, I checked the mailbox at least twice a day, despite the fact that nobody ever sent me anything.  Sure, I had grandparents and the occasional penpal, but they all lacked sufficient epistolary dedication.  I participated in every chain letter and clearinghouse giveaway I could.  I sent away for a lot of catalogs.

Though I now have a lot more to keep me busy, I still love getting mail.  So if you have anything you want to say, please send it my way.  I don't need any more catalogs, though.

Yours,

Patrick
