On the back of meths' thread, how long has it been since you wrote a letter to someone? Like an actual letter?
A really good friend of mine from uni is in the Royal Marines and has just been shipped out to Afghanistan (on Christmas Eve no less) so I was going to write him a letter. It might be well short as I no longer write ever with my hands anymore so they'll probably "exam cramp" in minutes.
Apparently he also wants us to send him chocolate and porn. Chocolate fine, but I'm not sure I'm man enough to walk into a shop and buy some porn. And then what type to get him? Do I get one he might enjoy, or something filthy and disgusting to make him and his marine mates chuckle?
I used to think writing letters was like the best thing ever. When I was 19 my girlfriend was on a gap year in Africa. She later split up with me, one of the reasons cited that I never took enough effort to keep in touch with her. I spent more than £70 sending her letters and parcels. I've stuck to e-mails since.
