Dear Mr. Postman,

You know, while I don’t mind sharing my copy of Canticle with you, I’d appreciate it…

…if you’d deliver it in the first place!

And you know what else? There’s a promotion going on, where you get a FREE trial issue, just by calling 1-800-558-5452. I’ll even call it for you. Just give me your name and phone number, and I’ll hook you right up.

Just as soon as you bring me MY COPY, that is.

Yeah, I know. It’s Lent and all, and you need all those nifty ideas in the special pull-out Lent section. And yeah, I know. You just need to finish Karen’s article. Maybe you even liked the one I submitted.

But, if you don’t mind, I’d really appreciate having MY COPY ALREADY! I mean, hey. You’re giving a bad name to Buckeye Mail Delivery.

Not to mention, you’re keeping me from some serious blogging about it.

*theatrical annoyed sigh*

I’ll forgive you.

Just as soon as you bring me MY COPY.

(I’m working on the “conditional” part of that, but I’m really not open to a lesson in it until I have MY COPY in my hands.)

Thanks in advance for your help.

P.S. I promise that I’ll give it to you when I’m done reading it! Now, will you PLEASE just bring me my copy???
