No Mail

I didn’t think it was possible to not get any mail. For as long as I can remember, as long as it wasn’t a Sunday or a holiday, my mailbox has had something, even if just a grocery store circular or yet another piece of we-can-refinance-your-mortgage junk mail. But the other day, there wasn’t a thing in our mailbox. And I know the mailman came, because we had outgoing mail that had been picked up.

I thought that either a.) somebody had lifted our mail, or b.) he had put the mail under the mat on our porch and it blew away. But the more I think about it, the more I’m sure that we actually didn’t get any mail.

Why an empty mailbox consumes my mind like this, I don’t know.

Oh, yes. It's possible - and it freaks me out.

I'm at least expecting a postcard from Sam Ash, or the seemingly-incessant "Local Values" flyers from the Chicago Tribune. When we don't get mail, I think something horrible has happened.

Even with the computer parts and porn the previous tenant left to come to our house, we've had a few days without mail in the past two weeks. It frightens me.

Ryan- Come on and let everyone know that you got about 100 pieces of mail at work this day.

I may have gotten a DVD, but I swear, that's it!

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
