I was 12 years old when I found that I can write a letter to someone and send it with no signature. Wow! It meant that I could take out of my chest whatever bothers me, in one of my friends at school saying in writing all the things I don’t want to say in person. She would never know it came from me. Excellent! The problem is that it cannot be in handwriting, otherwise I would be discovered.
With my friend and sister Ivylene and a prolific imagination we planned the delivery of our first anonymous letters in the neighborhood, in an ugly handwriting we were asking for $5.00 or we will break windows. The story ended with my friend’s family leaving the house immediately in a runaway for survival, as we pretended to be part of the victim’s list. We still laugh.
