Picture Postcards: Twitter, Before Twitter

I remember the first time my family went on vacation.

A grandma said, “Tommy, send me a postcard.”

I decided to send many postcards. The hotel desk clerk noted that I could have free postcards showing the motel. I looked at the aerial photo, then added “X is my room.”

I puzzled over the blank backs.

“What do you think I should write to grandma?” I asked.

My mom replied, “People always write ‘Wish you were here.'”

I declined. Instead, I tried to summarize all of our discoveries.

Thinking back several decades, I’d choose four different words:

“Wish you were me.”
