Prompt 959: the delivery

Smithsonian Institution

"This city letter carrier posed for a humorous photograph with a young boy in his mailbag. After parcel post service was introduced in 1913, at least two children were sent by the service. With stamps attached to their clothing, the children rode with railway and city carriers to their destination. The Postmaster General quickly issued a regulation forbidding the sending of children in the mail after hearing of those examples." (Flikr Commons/Smithsonian Institution)

  1. I ain't delivering this kid to nobody. Been carrying him around for a couple of hours and he has grown on me. Letter carriers make good dads. They are used to delivering and they are reliable. Drink a little but who doesn't. Besides the kid has a taste for whiskey. I gave him a little taste and he didn't even flinch. Looking forward to a quiet night with my new son, a steak in the frying pan,a little hooch and a fire in the woodstove. He can call me Papa. I'll call him Johnnie.
