I’m not sure if it’s just me or what, but as a boy, I really liked getting the mail. So much so, that I remember coming home from school, and the first thing I would do would take off my shoes, and get the mail, and bring it to the kitchen.
Then I started paying bills, and all of a sudden, getting the mail was a little less fun. There were fewer letters from family (remember letters? The things you did with a pen and paper, and sent with a stamp?), and more notices from people who wanted to get paid.
