THE WISDOM OF TAO


He who knows other men is discerning; he who knows himself is intelligent. He who overcomes others is strong; he who overcomes himself is mighty.

BackHand

I Stopped at Hallmark to get a bunch of inexpensive cards to send Max in Australia. It would be easier to just write a few lines and brighten his day that I was thinking of him and show his companions that he gets more mail then them. I still think of him but it is with guilt because I can't figure out what to write to fill up a whole blank piece of paper. He just doesn't know.

At Hallmark they have the .99 cent section and that is my price range if I want to send one every couple of days. I looked through the .99 cent section and realized they didn't create these cards to be in the .99 cent section. This section is the factory reject section. The creator of this card meant it to be in the 2.39$ section and missed. Missed bad. It is my guess that if you are a card designer at Hallmark and you end up with a fairly high percentage of your work in the .99 cent section that you are in jeopardy of ending up as a writer of the witty banter on the Disney show 'the Suit Life of Zack and Cody' and life doesn't get any lower for a writer then that.

So I am still thinking guilty thoughts about max.

Brilliant strategy making the companions jealous. I had a German companion who got letters from the same people multiple times a day. And, he just HAD to tell me about every single one. Max will love it, I'm sure!
