The daily mail is picked up by any member of my household and carefully placed on the kitchen counter. If the letter or envelope belongs to you, you collect it and take it to your respective office or room where you answer an invitation or pay a bill depending on the circumstance.
The AARP letter was clearly marked with my name on it. The innocuous white form envelope, with black typed letters of the computer-generated kind that we all get inundated with, is giving me the stink eye. As I passed the spot where the daily mail piles up, the white envelope remained sitting alone while the Barneys catalog and the mortgage statement were eagerly bound for pleasure or payment. Hmm. Is it a mistake? Perhaps if I do not pick it up, it will be intended for someone else?
In all seriousness, what happens if I don’t open it? Is it wishful thinking believing that if I do not open the correspondence, it may mean that I have not reached the milestone age of the benefits of an AARP card?
I will leave it sitting for a few more days………I will go about my business of my daily routine and perhaps its TRUE owner will claim his or her property.
