Wow! A postcard just for me, Gordy Shwartz!

In all my years in the mailroom, I do believe this is the first time I've ever gotten something for myself. I feel like I should be putting it in someone's slot, but it's already where it needs to go: right in my hands!

Why, I almost feel as if the heartbreak and the bitterness that has collected on me like plaque on a tooth melting away under the warm bristles of this gesture.

And what a lovely place this Mackinac Island appears to be. Lush greens, jutting rocks, blue waters. I imagine the smell you refer to is very pleasant!

Hey, I think one of my underlings is from Traverse City, Michigan. I wonder if he knows anything about...


He informs he the island is practically covored in horse pucky.

I'll get you for this, Jesse.
