I haven't received a chain letter via the post office for years. Most of this kind of crap is forwarded via email these days which makes it easy to click the delete button and risk never meeting my true soul mate or having my ears turn green and fall off.
I love living dangerously.
However, I received a chain letter through snail mail yesterday and I have decided to participate for two reasons..
One, it seems like a fun idea and two, I don't want to risk the wrath of the good friend that sent it to me by tossing it.
The premise is a paper back book forwarding club in which ideally you end up receiving 36 books of your own for the one you mailed out. I have decided to not send this to people that aren't interested and have decided to throw it out to you kids. I thought it would be interesting for my friend to receive books from out of state and I am thinking this is a great way to connect with your blog friends from around the country and around the world.
If you want to play, send an email with your name and address to firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send the instructions to you.
Tomorrow I need to blog about the damn pipe bursting in the floor above my office suite and how great my new carpets look under two inches of water. It is an odd feeling hearing my shoes squash with every step I take.
