Waiting by the letterbox


Have a feeling I've won all the writing competitions I've entered recently. Those stories I sent off were just so fabulous there is simply no chance that I haven't swept the board. Mine, all mine.

No one appears to have told the postman this though. He stubbornly refuses to bring those letters of congratulations to my door. I am most cross with him.

Curse for the Postie

May your bicycle wheels be flat and your route be far
And may all the dogs fancy leg of postman tartar.

He has been warned.

Its obvious what happened. They have
taken your letters to the Newspapers, so you can receive the true praise that you crave...er ..I mean deserve.

I was paralysed by the beauty of your words, they enclosed the stories in the notification of winning, I'm just down the street crying to myself, wondering how the world ever survived without your brilliant work...

Postman

Ps - pls call the dogs off

Thank you all so much for your support, it just means so much to me. I remember when I was a little girl and I had dreams of greatness, but I faced so much adversity (cue music drowning out my words and ballgowned beaties dragging me off stage...)

I'm new postie. Just took over new route. Had big heavy prize laden letter for nice lady but doberman bit my ass so had to run very fast. threw envelope over wall in Esker Meadows. Nice lady said Yippee and headed for Canada.
Being a postie is a wonderful job. You bring such joy to your customers!
