Writing 101: Tax Time


Walking back to our car from dinner tonight, we saw an envelope on the ground, near a hedge.

“Huh, look at this.” I said to my husband.

“It looks like a letter; here, let me see.” he replied. The letter is addressed to the California Franchise Tax Board, but there is no return address and no stamp.”

I said, “Well, let’s open it, maybe someone is getting some money back.”

As we opened the letter, the person was to receive a state refund of $5,435.00.

The tax form was dated April 9, 2009.

Today is April 9, 2015.


Writing 101: Day Five: Be Brief

Today’s Prompt: You stumble upon a random letter on the path. You read it. It affects you deeply, and you wish it could be returned to the person to which it’s addressed. Write a story about this encounter.

Today’s twist: Approach this post in as few words as possible.
