I have not purchased stamps from my local Post Office in months. I normally buy them from my mail carrier when he delivers my mail.
Today, I visited the Post Office to purchase stamps.
The postal worker behind the counter asked me which stamps I wanted. The variety of stamps were encased in a glass-covered frame on the wall to my right. Hmmm. So many to choose from nowadays. I was a little impatient. I just wanted stamps without a lot of decision making. Like buying toothpaste. At first glance at eye level, I noticed Ronald Reagan. I like most things Presidential and I said, “The Ronald Reagan ones would be nice.”
I looked a little higher and there was Gregory Peck. I immediately corrected myself and said, “Oh! Gregory Peck would be better!”
In a moment, I was completely star-struck just staring at the Gregory Peck stamps. I couldn’t even think to carry out my transaction. I caught myself and apologized for being so…smitten over a picture of Gregory Peck on a stamp!
Good grief! I think I even blushed!
The postal worker just giggled.
So yeah, I have always had a teeny-tiny crush on Mr. Peck.
Blame it on Roman Holiday.
