Sometimes, I think I run across a few more anonymous letters than the average person might expect to. I'm guessing it's because I lead an unusually exciting life.
This new anonymous letter is a little different from my last experience with Mr. Anonymous. Yesterday, we went downtown to explore because there's currently an art festival going on which means that there are random bits of interesting art and sculpture all over the downtown area.
I went to the bathroom, as I tend to do, and was slightly startled to find this envelope perched on top of the soap dispenser:
Now, I'm not really one to question such an address. I like mail, and there were no other "yous" in the bathroom, so I figured I might as well take it. Once outside the bathroom, I showed the mysterious envelope to Angel and he opened it right away.
Turns out, this is part of a random love letter project that is one entry into the art festival that is going on (our art festival is known for its broad acceptance of what qualifies as art--basically, it could be anything from a puppet show to a makeshift village to a stained glass window to a gigantic metal pig).
Honestly, the wording seems a little bit flowery to me. Not even at the heights of pre-marriage amorous bliss would I have written Angel such a lovey-dovey epistle. My practical nature and my slightly toughened heart are a bit uncomfortable with such a passionate declaration of affection...and yet there's a big part of me that thinks it's pretty cool that I was the one who happened to stumble across this random little anonymous love letter.
The letter made me smile, and I think that's the mission it was intended to accomplish.
Have you ever come across an anonymous letter, for good or for evil? Have you written one?
