Our letter carrier crossed our path the other day as we left the neighbourhood on a run.
Me: Tias, maybe you’d like to be a letter carrier? (The subject of future careers is on his mind these days.)
T: No. I want to add something to the world.
Me: … Mmm? Like what?
T: I dunno. Working to help animals or something. Not carying around dead trees.

Oh dear. I would have wanted to sink into the floor. Poor postie – looks like a Pot o’ Gold is coming his way Christmas, eh?
Not that Tias isn’t right. Or funny.
What an interesting perspective Tias has.
I wonder if how much longer (in the grand scheme of things) we’ll have postal carriers?
Great comment! Will there even still be home delivery when he’s of age for the job?
