I went to the post office to mail one of my plays to this competition in England and while I was there I picked up some stamps because I never have them when I need them. I chose the Edgar Allan Poe commemorative stamps. He was my favorite author when I was in like third grade. That explains a lot, no? He only lived to be 40 years old. Too bad. Also, they put a quote by him on the side of the page of stamps that says “Leave my loneliness unbroken!” It’s from The Raven. That’s the quote they picked? I know the guy was macabre, but couldn’t they pick something slightly less depressing? I’m trying to think of a way to make a joke involving The 40-Year Old Virgin about how Poe was probably a virgin and he died when he was 40 but that sad quote just took all the wit out of me. I can’t make puns now. I’m too sad.
Just looked at stamps again. Sadness gone. They make me smile because they are so silly. He has a nice little mustache.
