I'm jealous...

No one's ever compared me to an apricot before!

When I was 12 or so, I send in a short note to get penpals in Africa (with my parents permission). Turns out they published that in the local paper somewhere in Kenya, so I got a bunch of letters (maybe 50?) from people being my penpal. At least 5 of those were from older guys that wanted to marry me, and three of them asked me to send them color TV's. This was in the 1980s... Today I am amazed that my parents didnt make a big deal out of that and read those letters first... I wonder what happened to those letters, maybe they are still at my mom's house. I remember that it lead, inadvertently, to a lot of nice beautiful stamps in my stamp collection :)

I picked only two penpals, two young women, and we only wrote each other for a few years. One sent me kenyan chewing gum :)
