I May Have Found My Calling

13 May

If I do say so myself, I have lovely handwriting. Rather fancy, and I make my lower case “e’s” the same way I make my upper case “E’s”, but it’s very clear and easy to read.

A young friend asked me recently if I would address her wedding invitations. “They don’t teach cursive in school anymore, and I think printing my invites would look tacky.” She paused and looked thoughtful for a moment. “I could make up computer labels with fancy print, but that would be even tackier. So, would you do it for me?” And I agreed.

This could be an entirely new cottage industry for little old ladies who still know how to write. Send me your envelopes and your list, and for a reasonable price, I’ll do them up for you.

How does that sound?

    Do you know what I discovered? I sat down to write in a greeting card the other day and could barely read my own writing. Who would’ve thought that I’d get out of practice??? So now I work on my fine motor skills trying to write my grocery list and to-do list (which I usually print. How about I send you the list and instead of putting them in cursive, you just do them for me?

      Um, I’m not sure where you live, but shipping might be a bit much from Baltimore to your place. Keep practicing! You’ll get it.
