1. New mail
I walk to the mail box,picking up the mail as I do every Saturday morning.The cold air whips my hair around.I am excpecting a package;my mom ordered some catalog junk.The mail box opens ,showing its contents.I find the key to the package locker ,but something else catches my eye.All of our letters including the key,were all pushed to the side of the slot.On the one open corner,there is a cream-colored envelope.I read the adress.
And of course my complete adress.I am confused.Nobody sends me mail!Curiousity forces me to run home,tripping over my own feet.
I dump the mail-messenger-bag (AKA grocery bag)on the couch.I rip open the envelope,creating cream confetti.The note is stamped with a neat red stamp thingy,making it look professional."Oooh fancy"I opened it,reading the print
