TORPID

E.g. lethargic or lazy.

A torpid day that was only involved sending some mail at the most. I sent a letter to Zoe in Australia, although I forgot to write her name on it – really sorry.

Here’s the weird thing about sending letters. They’re glorified for making their way across continents and oceans even though we can guarantee that they’ll make it there safely anyway. They’re romanticised out of proportion for the effort they show but surely it’s just as meaningful to send a text. After all, at least you can get a quicker reply.

“They’re a waste of paper, ink and are out-dated and ….”

I could go on but that still doesn’t take away the emotion it creates on a persons face. That moment is priceless and well worth the effort. A sense of surprise that can’t be measured.
