We have started a terrible habit. We never check our mail. By never, I don't mean we go a day or two without checking. On a good week we check the mailbox once. Our mail is delivered to one of those "community mailboxes". It is exactly 25 steps away from our front door. I drive by it on my way home from work, but I can't bring myself to stop there more than once a week. The odd thing is, if you made me wait a week to check my email I would feel sick to my stomach. Is it because the only thing we receive in our mail box are bills, and the odd magazine? I'm not sure. When I picked up the mail on my way home tonight there was a HUGE stack. Bills, a magazine, flyers... I began to wonder what the mail-delivery-person must think. Do they imagine that we are world travelers? Frequently flying off to exotic, far-away destinations? Do they imagine that we are jet-setting business people? Independently wealthy? Good-will ambassadors? Or do they picture us, cozied up on the couch, fireplace on, watching tv... being just, plain lazy? Probably.
