Oooohh now if that title doesn’t grab your attention, I don’t know what will. Linda is changing it up for us. She says and I quote ” Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “the last piece of mail you received.” Talk about the subject of the last piece of physical mail you received, i.e. a gas bill–talk about gas, not the bill itself. Have fun!”
First question – Does anybody get physical mail anymore? I for one loath the mess created by paper. Ugh! I am a minimalist. Paper = bad. Trees not yet paper = good. Paper from something besides trees = okay. except those chemicals will likely kill us. I am following the Purple Almond and I saw this – look y’all educational stuff.
And now I can hear you saying WTF is she on about. The she is me. Jilly. Mind and thoughts racing. Playing tricks. Tumbling around here in ye olde noggin.
Okay. take two. What is the subject of the last piece of physical mail we got? Well it was a request for a notarized statement because we are cashing in life insurance. The only reason we had this policy was so Lulu could go summer camp for cheap. A fraternal benefit from her junior rider.
Life insurance … for your children … makes me queasy to think about because no one should lose a child. Horrific. I saw what my dad and my in-law’s went through after losing their respective sons. There is nothing quite like the anguish. I can only imagine and something I’d rather deny. Mortality. I am not too happy with the direction this stream went but again the mind wants what the mind wants.
Maybe I should switch back from online to paper mail?? Then I’d be writing all about gas. Ah just imagine where that would’ve gone.
