spread your words and flyBy Pat Law • May 21st, 2009 • Category: The Lonely Travellor
These quirky international girl aerogrammes could not have come at a better time. I’m now in Hong Kong international airport, awaiting my transitting flight out to Amsterdam en route Rotterdam (yes, this is a painful but economical way of travelling) to catch Tears of Barren Hill by award winning director Danny Yung at Operadagen Rotterdam 2009.
When was the last time you received or wrote an aerogramme? I bet the last time you picked that pen up to write was when you had to write a cheque to pay them bills. Oh, for those who don’t know, aerogrammes are letters and envelopes rolled into one. Somewhat like your regular 2-in-1 shampoo conditioner.
Strangely enough, I do recall the last time I wrote an aerogramme – I was thirteen, and I was in Washington DC visiting my aunt, and I’ve had a rollerhockey game right outside the White House just moments before. Yeah, those were the pre-September-11 days. But hey, at least my dear friends of certain races don’t have to queue at the immigration counter like the rest of us (I’m not being racist, I’m stating a fact… the real people being racists are those who assume everyone of that pigmentation are terrorists)!
Let me make you a deal… Since I’ve not written an aerogramme for such a long time, let me write YOU one. Give me a reason why I should in the form of a comment, and Imma pick one lucky reader to write to. Excuse me for being a smuck-a-duck, but I do have pretty nice handwriting. I’ll make it worth your time.
Meanwhile, be sure to check out international girl. Warning: you might get carried away buying them! They’re too cute!
