Well, it happened. My Postcrossing fantasy happened: I GOT A POSTCARD FROM ONE OF YOU.
YES! It's true! It was from Colleen A Madison Mom. You should have seen Colleen and me FLIPPING OUT about it. Sample dialogue:
Swistle: SQUEE SQUEE SQUEE!!
Colleen: SQUEE SQUEEEEE!!!
Swistle: OMG SQUEEE!
Colleen: SQUEE SQUEE SQUEE!!
Swistle: I KNOW RIGHT???? SQUEEE!
And actually, it got me thinking: maybe I've gotten postcards from OTHERS of you, too, without knowing it (Colleen had put her blog url on her postcard---otherwise I wouldn't have known). And maybe I've sent postcards to some of YOU without either of us knowing it! So what I was thinking is that we ought to do a little CODE of some sort: something that wouldn't look weird to someone else, but something that would catch our eye if we got a postcard from each other. Maybe a little triangle across one corner, like this?
I'm doing that from now on! If you're on Postcrossing and you get a postcard with a line-corner, it's from ME! And tell me about it so I can FLIP THE FLIP OUT!
