Reader "Jim" wrote me with this tale of strange mail.
"More than 20 years ago, when I was a distribution clerk, I happened to catch something out of the corner of my eye in the crease along the bottom edge of an 'empty' spring loaded hamper. To my surprise, it was a regular-sized dice, with a stamp folded around the edges. It had "To" and "From" addresses written in the tiniest print on different sides of the dice.
Even more amazing, was that the dice had made it all the way through its mail processing journey from Las Vegas origin to its Bellevue, WA, destination, arriving in a hamper containing regular sized parcels and larger SPRs."
Back in my day, before the DMM, I saw it all. The things that came through the mail! An ale mug, a quill pen, and a horseshoe. Some joker sent some knickerbockers to me directly and someone else sent some of Dr. Tom's mystical magical health potion with the cap loose and it spilled all over my hands. I must admit, my hands are much softer and more supple now.
