Nostalgia

There is nothing like receiving an old-fashioned letter, a proper letter, beautifully written in pen and ink on high-grade stationery, hand-delivered by a cheerful postman in full ceremonial postman regalia, just like in older, more genteel times when correspondence was a personal, more meaningful activity, in contrast to the instant everything society we now inhabit, a letter sealed with wax inside a handsome beige envelope, to which is affixed a stamp featuring the profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, a letter written with deliberation and care, signed with a flourish, telling you that you are a cunt.
