Did you have a pen pal growing up? I'd always hear about kids maintaining long term long distance relationships with pen pals. They'd exchange birthday wishes, holiday greetings and well wishes over years and years. I always thought this sounded like a great idea.
I never had a pen pal like that but I gave it a shot a few times. In the days before the Internet, pen pals were our Facebook friends. You didn't know them in the real world and they might live far away, but you could follow their lives from a distance and considered them "friends". That's Facebook in slow motion. I wonder if email has killed the pen pal star?
I think I would have made a good pen pal.
