Pen Pals Junk & Romance
It's romantic. One can experience romance with platonic friends. I know this because I do. That's how I feel about all the friends that I pen pal with. We are engaged in magic, courting, love. Over time we have all taken to the habit of adorning our packages with stickers, drawings. Mail is cheap. No matter the economy, .44 can get you to Greece. We proudly stuff them with whatever catches our eye on route to writing the next time we do. Yeah, it's garbage, sort of. But imbued with meaning and scribbled on with the thoughts of a friend. . . suddenly the junk is irreplaceable, precious, priceless.
