Secret Mail

zdepski's illustration of the Tantes mailing secret letters. Our Tantes would ask Mom to mail letters without return addresses from far away towns, and too much postage. Mom didn't like doing it.

My Tantes had a paranoid streak running through their understanding of the world. They thought the government was spying on them, seeding the clouds with fluoride and monitoring their correspondence.

They probably were being watched... Uni-Bomber-style.
