The Slice

Mail call

There was a misdelivered envelope in my mailbox at home Friday.

Addressed to a woman at the house next door.

No big deal. That happens.

But here's the thing. The addressee hasn't lived in that house since the late 20th century. She and her husband moved to Honduras or Guatemala or some place like that. I think they relocated in 1999.

The envelope was sent by ASURIS Northwest Health and had a Seattle return address.

My initial assumption was that it couldn't be all that important. But you never know.

So I was trying to think of what to write on the envelope before putting it in a mailbox.

"NO LONGER AT THIS ADDRESS"?

"PLEASE FORWARD TO GENERAL DELIVERY/TEGUCIGALPA"?

Then I saw it.

There in the lower left corner of the front of the envelope was a four-word message.

"This is an advertisement."

That simplified the matter considerably.
