The first day of the postcard club went well: I received sixteen. When I went to the locus mailboxii to pick them up, the clerk goes, "Ooh, I just loved looking at your mail!"

There was another dude standing right next to me, also checking his mail, so I asked the clerk, "Do you mean him, or me?" She goes, "I mean you. He always just gets a bunch of magazines." It seems ridic now that I'm sitting here a day later writing about it, but at the time I was stricken- stricken!- at the overt violation of mail privacy. "Stricken at the overt violation of mail privacy": just like "Horrified at the sight of a desecrated flag," and "In need of a great number of ice cubes," it's an ultra-Murkin sensation. I relished it.

And here's the one I sent back:
