I’ve had my nose down pretty consistently, and I’m at it today again, but I thought a little diversion might be in order.
A riddle, then– what is this:
The answer after the status update. I think you’ll find it surprising! Now, the update:
WHAT: First draft of short story “Yard Light”.
HOW MUCH: 5½ pages of manuscript.
HOW LONG: About 30 min. (due to fun-break)
Are you ready for the revelation? Have you written down your guess?
It’s– not a postage stamp! And yet, it was in the place of a stamp on an envelope which arrived at The Regular Job today. I’m assuming it’s something in the line of an Easter seal, some kind of semi-useful fund-raising item. As to how it managed to trick its way through the postal system, I suspect that the response of the front-line workers to the care and consideration Canada Post is getting from the current government is, when not simply curled up in a corner and weeping, a certain amount of shouting, “Good enough!” at whatever the task in hand is. I don’t blame them.
