Wads . . .
Wad: a bundle of paper, banknotes, or documents : a thick wad of index cards.
I have several wads of paper. I dislike wasting precious paper. All the paper at my disposal is good paper. I like paper. I don’t think I have ever met a paper I didn’t like. I do not like wads of paper though.
So, why do I have paper wads? I have paper wads because I have difficulty controlling my pens lately. Loss of control results in messy letters. Messy letters are caused when spasms make my pen skitter across or even off the page when I write. It makes me go “Arrgh!” Out of frustration. No one likes reading mail that has too many strikethroughs. At least I don’t think they do.
I’ve decided to use my word processor when needed. I’d much rather print a letter I’ve typed than not write at all. It sounds too much like being gagged after you finally get to meet the one person you dream of having dinner and conversation with. Who would you like to eat and talk with?
And, since it won’t be for very long, I have a feeling it won’t be a bad thing. I doubt anyone will be too offended, either. Y’all are such good people who forgive lapses and infirmities. Besides, two typed letters have already gone out. (double winks)
No more wads!
I will write on!
