The times we live in. [Jan. 8th, 2002|08:06 pm]
Nite Mirror
I have a friend who had a birthday recently. Since he expressed an interest in my learning tlhIngan Hol, I thought I'd send him a type written, personal Klingon birthday greeting. So I used the Klingon font I have and printed it out.

Um, some background info now before I continue. N, my friend, was greatly shaken by 9-11. So even though he personally is, like most average US citizens, a low individual target for terrorists he is scared sh**less.

Now I sent him the birthday greeting by mail to his apartment. He didn't recognize my return address and grew suspicious of the letter. Then when he held it up to the light and saw the strange (Klingon) font through the sealed envelope, he thought he had gotten an anthrax letter.

Other than these are the times we live in now I have nothing to add here.

i know you probably were not trying to be funny but I chuckled when I read that story.

All of us around here closely inspect our mail now and most, if not all things that arent bills or from someone we feel we know get tossed.

Maybe that is why telemarketing calls seem to be up? This must be a junk mail marketers nightmare.

Anyway your story helps us laugh in the face of tragedy. Humor is a great healer. Perhaps many of us are beginning to heal.

I have started religiously watching Comedy Central's The Daily Show. They help poke fun at all this terrosist stuff nand I think that is just what we need.
