Shortly thereafter, Laura left B-More to visit her parents for a few days. Right before she left she told me to feel free to come over to her place during her absence to do whatever. Which I did. I visited her room & borrowed some of her old mail & some of the mail she'd gotten while away.
Using these postings as my source material, I created fake mail for her. I took her father's stationery & made blank copies of it to type on. Using a typewriter with a similar typeface to her father's, I simulated a letter from her father to her - complete with a poem in his style. I bought a photo post-card & pasted a copy of her father's address label over the backing info - to accompany the simulated letter. I xeroxed a letter from her friend Anne & modified by underlining all "babes" & "dudes" with red ink. I practiced forging her friend Margaret's handwriting & wrote a silly letter pretending to be her.
My post office box # is the same as that of the Columbian Consulate in B-More. The difference between the 2 is that theirs is located in a commercial building & mine is located at a post-office. Both of these locations are in the same zip-code. As such, any mail addressed to that box # that doesn't specifiy the commercial bulding location is likely to be sent to me. Hence, I've received quite a bit of the consulate's post.
So, if you ever find yourself in an identity crisis because you've started talking with the voice of tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE & you feel like you need a support group, just go to 3004 N. Calvert St., Baltimore, MD, 21218, us@ & walk inside & up to the front room of the 2nd floor & start talking to the corner of the room with the table (if there's no table, just the South-West corner will do), or the bed (if there is 1), or the pile of clothes (if there is 1), or the record-layer/tape-player (if there is 1) & wait for them to answer - & if anyone comes in & questions you because they think you're crazy, just ignore them as if they're not even there.
