It’s rare to actually wait for the postman anymore. FedEX or StarTrack, maybe, but most days I check my mailbox and, despite the “No junk mail” placard, I find my box stuffed with realtor and pizza delivery ads. With texting and instant messaging it is also rare to even receive a “real” email.
I do remember the times, though, when the stop at the postbox would bring a smile to my face with a card, a letter or even a postcard (do they still make those?). Even the inconvenience of having to make a trip to the post office was overshadowed by the knowledge that a parcel too large for the box awaited me.
My postman, by the way, never rings twice; I’m lucky if he makes the 20-step trek to my front door, and I went into a panic before Christmas when he haphazardly stuffed a delivery into my box, only to have my neighbour rescue it…then forget to tell me she had picked it up for a week. Trust me; you do NOT want to have to deal with AusPost customer service in the lead up to the holiday!
Occasionally, though, there is still something other than a bill or junk, a treasure trove to be savoured and remembered, as a nostalgic remembrance of simpler times.
The postbox in my photo that brought on those memories is located at Rwah’s newest photography sim, Purple Crayons. It will be open soon; I’ll give details when it goes public. It is truly a destination not to be missed! Edit: Purple Crayons is now open! Also open now is Sneak Peek, so plan on doing some shopping!
