Magnetic Letters Sent Me Mail

For as long as I can remember my aunt has spelled out NOEL in magnetic letters and affixed it to her refrigerator. Maybe it moved around a little bit. When I would come over to her house for Christmas dinner I would change the spelling to LEON. What a great prank, right? I did this every year until this last year when the letters weren’t on the fridge. I went all over the house just so I could mess up the message. Unfortunately I never found NOEL. A few days later I sent my aunt a letter about how disappointed I was.
Last week NOEL sent me a response letter about why he wasn’t around for the holidays. Subsequently the letter is one of my favorite pieces of mail I’ve ever received. Such great stuff.
