New Years Eve Day
It was the early morning hours of New Year’s Eve, and the phone
at our small post office rang constantly with people asking the postal
clerk if there would be mail delivery that day. To put a stop to the
interruptions, the clerk had the local radio station announce that there
would be mail delivery.
She had a few moments’ peace after that, until the phone interrupted.
“I just heard on the radio that there will be mail delivery today,” the
voice on the other end said. “Is that true?”
