At the present moment, I am blogging to try and forget about the piles and piles of thank you notes that I am supposed to write. Don't get me wrong: I love to write letters, I love writing, and I am very, very thankful. Yet I still hate thank you notes.
Why? Because all they ultimately say is "thank you." "If you don't write a thank you, they'll never know you're thankful," is the thought behind thank you notes I guess. However, when I give a gift, I take it for granted that people are grateful. So, either I'm incredibly assuming, or there is something wrong with the rest of the world that they have to write notes to be thankful.
And that brings me to another problem: What if you aren't grateful? Isn't it lying to write a thank you note? However, we will not go there; this is not a problem for me because I'm never ungrateful. Ahhhh, I am always such an angel.
P.S. If I actually wrote thank you notes to everybody I should, I'd get blisters and carpal tunneling. Wait, can you get carpal tunneling from writing?
