So, in the world of letter-sending, it pays to be a little tubby, I guess.
More interesting still, the USPS is introducing a "forever" stamp, which, if you go spend all your cash in May when they release these stamps and stock up on them, will be good for a standard letter, no matter how often or how much the rate increases in the future. I think I'll seriously consider hoarding a batch for when I have to send out my wedding invitations or my funeral announcements (more likely sooner than the wedding).
Of course, the way I keep my records and my office supplies, I'll have invested in a coupla hundred of the little blighters, only to have no clue the next day where I stashed them. Or, I'll end up trading them for a handful of magic beans. Some of us are like that.
Still, it's an interesting way to get people to invest in the future of hard copy communications.
This calls for a postcard. Maybe I'll even send one via USPS, this week.
Nah. This'll do.
