Letter Writing With CPS

Post about everything from carrying a handkerchief to manly skills (sharpening a pocket knife, etc.) to product reviews of items that may have slipped under our radar (e.g. - Grandpa's Pine Tar soap). No threads on anything "new" unless it harkens to old-fashioned sensibilities and ideals.

Letter Writing With CPS

Post by Jester » Thu May 11, 2017 7:55 am

This thread will serve as a sign-up for a pen-pal exercise. Please post that you want to sign-up or send me a PM by May 31st. After that date I will send a personal message to you with who you will be writing to. You will not know who is sending you a letter until you receive it. Upon receiving this letter you are expected to respond. So you will be sending a letter with expectation of getting one back and you will be receiving a letter with the expectation of sending one back. How far the letter chains go from there is completely up to you. You are not expected to send anything other than a letter so the cost of this exercise will be stationery and stamps.

You must send this on in 3 hours after reading the letter to 10
different people. If you do this, you will receive unbelievable good luck in
love. The person that you are most attracted to will soon return your
feelings. If you do not, bad luck will rear it’s ugly head at you. THIS IS
NOT A JOKE! You MUST send this on or face dreadfully bad luck.

*NOTE* The more people that you send this to, the better luck
you will have.

This would not be chain letter as it would be between two people and not sent forward to another. I now see using the word chain was a mistake. It may seem funny to you because you grew up in a generation where mail was an everyday thing but you have to remember that most millennials have never even sent one. If you would like to volunteer to deliver it by pony that would really highlight the experience. :pipe:

Why did you write "with?" Is CPS going to help me write a letter?

Del,
Please tell us about the olden days when people sent letters. If someone sent you a funny note would you just put it in a new envelope and send it to another friend?

This has me curious. Do millennials know how to write with pen and paper? Or how to address an envelope?

I would fax it to my friend's office on the other side of town.

We traded jokes like that, all of the time. It was exciting whenever that fax machine would start clicking!

I remember one time, we got a cartoon FAX about how ET (the alien in the movie) got his long neck.

He was peeing over the top of the toilet bowl, and the seat came down and whacked him on his weiner, and his head and neck stretched up real high as he screamed "EEEEEEEE!"

Ask them about cursive too, when you find them.

Quite indeed. Between various Snapchats of TNLP and convos with theImpudent, there's never a dull moment.
