Poll #714168 Dear Pen Pal

Do you think its a good idea to write to a random person in every state and see who writes back?

Only on Tuesdays, NEVER on Wednesdays.
Yoooo-za Hooooo

You mean every state in the U.S., right?
I think that it's a brilliant idea. I voted yes. I write to people that I've never met all of the time. It's such an amazing thing.

my sister and i were discussing how she wanted a pen pal, but she doesnt know how a 26yr old goes about getting a pen pal.
so she came up with this idea.
she doesnt have a paid account, so i made the poll for her.
she used to send random people gifts.
it was fun.

you write to random people?
i thought we were the only ones who come up with these 'weird' ideas.

Yes, all the time. Sometimes it's people who I have actually met once or twice [say at a concert, for example] and we exchange e-mail addresses and then eventually home addresses... One girl that I wrote to all of last year became like my diary. We'd never even had a phone conversation or socialised together in real life. It was really cool.

One time I just filled 10 envelopes with glitter and a peice of paper saying you are beautiful and sent them off to ten random addresses. I didn't write my name or return address or anything. I'm sure one envelope made at least one person happy. :)

im sure you care, but i will respond anyways

this is a very good point.

this all stemmed from the fact that my sister and I are moving to another state. we just dont know which one yet. We cannot afford to move out of the country.

but i agree.
we should rethink this and send letters to other countries as well.
it will be fun. :)
