Few Words Wednesday: I Wrote You a Letter

Gimme a ticket for an aero-plane.
Ain't got time to take a fast train.
Lonely days are gone, I'm a goin' home.
My baby, I wrote you a letter.
I addressed my letter to my Grandpa and Grandma, and then I drew a
smiley-face stamp exactly where my mama told me the postage should go.
Then I took my letter out to the mailbox in my underwear.
(Don't judge - it's hot in Texas.)
I put my letter on top of the mailbox while I opened the mailbox door.
(It took two hands and I cried a little because I the door was so tight.)
And then I put my letter in the mailbox and went
back inside to wait for the mailman to come.
You can imagine how well it went over when our mailman came to the house and didn't take the letter out of the mailbox. I had to make up some ridiculous excuse about how there must not have been enough postage on the letter, wait for her to draw a second smiley-face stamp, put the letter back in the mailbox, and then sneak out at night and remove the letter from the mailbox.

I just hope she doesn't ask Grandma and Grandpa if they enjoyed the letter she sent...
