Em has a serious letter writing habit. She maintains active correspondence with over a dozen of her favorite people. And, if you’ve been the lucky recipient of one of Em’s hand decorated letters and envelopes, then you have a pretty good idea of the joy they bring. pic.twitter.com/82FnWRsD5B— Hugh Weber (@hughweber) May 2, 2020
So, when she decided to thank our mail carrier for the service he provides us, she left nothing out. In went Taylor Swift, in went the little brother, in went the jokes.— Hugh Weber (@hughweber) May 2, 2020
Q: Why do you never see elephants hiding in trees?
A: Because they’re really good at it.
She continued, “The reason you are very important in my life is because I don’t have a phone so how else am I supposed to stay in touch with my friends? You make it possible!”— Hugh Weber (@hughweber) May 2, 2020
Sara said that, as an essential worker, Doug might not be able to maintain regular correspondence, but she sure could. Em started writing that very afternoon.— Hugh Weber (@hughweber) May 2, 2020
Today, we saw Doug getting out of the truck with two BOXES of letters from around the country. We snapped a quick photo through the door as he and Emerson met for the first time. It was a beautiful moment on silent reciprocity. pic.twitter.com/NF6PAOxht3— Hugh Weber (@hughweber) May 2, 2020
Because Em was fully vulnerable, they were too.— Hugh Weber (@hughweber) May 2, 2020
Em shared jokes, so they shared jokes.
Em share her brother, so every gift that was sent came in duplicate.
Em shared @taylorswift13 and it turns out that the US Postal service is filled with lots of undercover Swifties.
And, they sent stamps to be used as well. Stamps for her to write back. Stamps for her to write others. Stamps, stamps, stamps. (218 by Em’s count.) pic.twitter.com/kkpQPLZ8P2— Hugh Weber (@hughweber) May 2, 2020
One wrote,— Hugh Weber (@hughweber) May 2, 2020
“I can’t tell you how much it means to read your letter...”
“I have a son in Kuwait and if you have a second to send him a letter he would love it.”
“I know you can’t write back to all of us, but maybe I can drop you a line from time to time?”
With dozens of new pen pals, Em did what she does best.— Hugh Weber (@hughweber) May 2, 2020
She wrote the dad.
She wrote his son.
She assured the secret swifties not to be embarrassed because her dad likes TSwift, too.
She acknowledged that there WERE a lot of letter but that she had time.
She sees them all. pic.twitter.com/308G5IJ4PF
