Tell Me a Story, part 14: Said says goodbye

Years ago, I briefly rented a post-office box and took out an ad in the classifieds which, apart from listing the box address, simply read “Tell me a story.” One of the respondents, Said, sent a number of letters. To see earlier ones, click here –– to go to his previous one, where there are links to earlier ones.

I’ve removed his address and phone number.


Tell Me A Story

Letter #14

Received Jan. 28, 2002

Hand-written on 8-1/2×11″ paper

Ottawa, Ont.,

Jan. 24, 2002

Dear beautiful friend,

I have told you a story. I wished you had heard it directly and I am sure that would have been a far more wonderful story. I have your tape. I had taken more initiative and I expected a few words from you.

In March I leave Canada for 3 months and visit Europe as well as the Orient. I wondered if I could only meet you. The best thing and safe can be a lunch at Chateau Laurier. I am also a wonderful cook & could offer at my place.

If you keep silence it would mean that I won’t respond for any friendly gesture to any one in future. Please do write.

Yours sincerely,


Tele: ###-####
