Underneath Mr. Mailman's kind reminder, you will see my written-in-the-heat-of-the-moment reply that I am still unconvinced as to whether or not I will stick it in the mailbox tomorrow. Before I share with you my reply, bear in mind that it snowed approximately one inch overnight and the temperature has been in the mid 40's since I woke up this morning at 8am. There is hardly any snow on the ground, let alone any ice. A dusting, if you will. My reply reads as follows:
Apologies for the unshoveled snow from overnight. I am pregnant, work every day from 5am-6pm and my husband travels out of state for work Monday through Thursday. If you have the phone number of a young child that wouldn't mind shoveling a small stretch of sidewalk for a nice price (or an extra snowblower, even) please do not hesitate to pass it along. Until then, I am really and truly doing my best. Thank you for the note.
After careful review and a phone call to Hubs, he suggested that I do not place said letter in the mailbox, as we do enjoy and would like to continue to enjoy receiving our mail in a safe, unthreatening manner. Hmph.
