The postman always looks twice


From my hiding place I watched the postman.

He was whistling a jolly tune. When he noticed that the box in the porch was missing he hesitated. He stopped whistling and tried to pile up the letters in the space where the box used to be.

The letters slipped off the shelf.

He caught them and tried to stack them up again, but they wouldn’t stay. He paused and looked around. Suddenly he noticed the BRAND NEW SHINY BRASS LETTERBOX RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DOOR, exactly where a letterbox usually is.

He lifted the flap and posted the letters. They fell on the mat with a new and exciting rustle.

Must dash, I’ve got to write myself some more letters.
