Even Longer

As part of my campaign this weekend to be productive but in only the most minimal ways I went through two big containers of papers and threw out enough to make it one big container. My criteria for ditching stuff is varied and only marginally logical. My favorite one, though, is to look at a questionable communication and ask, "If this were from me to the person who sent it instead of the other way around, would s/he keep it?" If the answer is no then the missive gets mulched.

Some things, of course, don't fit that protocol. I kept everything from Auntie Blanche. The last thing before I quit for the evening was a Winnie the Pooh card she sent because as she wrote, "I believe you liked Winnie the Pooh Tales." I did. I do. The front of it said, '"We'll be friends forever, won't we, Pooh?" asked Piglet. "Even longer," Pooh answered.'

    I have kept a lot of cards as well. That one you mentioned just made me tear up a little. So sweet.
