Pen pals in faraway places. I know you gave me the address for someone in Australia, but as a rule I am assuming that you are giving out my address and that they will be writing to me first.
The one address I got for a woman in Georgia. I did send her a letter and never heard from her. So if any of the people are expecting me to write first, be sure to let me know.
I know you can post anything you want, and I appreciate the humor. It is so hard for me to truly gauge what is going on since I so not have any of the usual non-verbal signs that one has even if you are just talking on phone. Tone of voice, delay in responding, stuttering and other things that let you know if a person is serious, mad, getting angry etc.
The other 'problem' I have is that I usually end up putting more words down on the page. This tends to lead me to go into more detail than is needed or in other cases carrying on a rant farther than needed, having already turned people off.
At least in a live conversation, you can make adjustments on the fly that could avoid getting yourself in deep. Of course this assumes that one is not totally clueless to the various clues that one can pick up, especially those ever-critical male - female conversations.
I have never really watched the X-Files. I am not really worried about something I say leading to prosecution, since I will never put anything that could possibly be construed as illegal in writing.
The retired cop that 'accidentally
' shot the store clerk in Queens just showed up here last week. I think he pled to a 1 to 3 year
Give me a break! Where is the scale please? It is not like the accident was caused by the ex-cop having to draw his gun to stop a crime in progress and he shot an innocent bystander! No, he was joking around
with a loaded weapon! One would think you would hold police officers to a high standard on 'playing' with their loaded weapons. Yep, we certainly have all kinds here.
Yes, the writing paper I use is a little bit heavier, although it still claims to be twenty pound so I don't know why it is jamming in your copier/scanner. I have just started the second ream and will try to order a different paper next time. I am assuming you are having problems because of the folds? If that is so, I could send the letters in larger envelopes? Certainly could do that for the over four sheet letters. Give me your thoughts
