Yesterday Mike was explaining to me why he’s so happy it’s Monday again.
Me: You know basically everyone else in the country despises Mondays, right?
Him: I know, but for me it’s a return to normalcy. The mail comes, the snow plows plow, the traffic is predictable, the newspaper arrives. Everything is right with the world.
Me: I feel like I’m dating an old man.
Later in the morning…
Him: Hey, will you put the return address and stamps on all of these envelopes while I take a shower?
*I look dubiously at a pile of mail*
Me: You do know there is technology developed and readily available where you can pay your bills online, right?
Him: I know, but I like the idea of the post office. I also feel like my mailman would take it personally if I didn’t use him anymore.
Me: OK, but it is a holiday, so these won’t get sent until Tuesday.
Him: Drat! I hate Sundays and holidays.
