311. Write an anonymous letter to someone

My Story

Updated September 18, 2009

I added this item to my to do list so long ago that I don’t remember what my intent was. Did I want to write an anonymous letter to someone praising them? Did I intend to scold a loud neighbor anonymously? Did I want to be a secret admirer and confess my love anonymously to the object of my affection? Did I just want to be kind, generous, smart, funny, wise, or helpful anonymously?

I don’t remember.

I suppose any of the above situations would do in a pinch, though I do think about how odd it would be to receive such a letter. You’d have to wonder – where did it come from and why was it sent?

Maybe that was the attraction for me when I added this item to my list – perhaps I just wanted someone to experience that sense of wonder.
