The Mailman

My mailman is a bear. He’s an actual bear that works for the U.S. Postal Service. He wears the uniform. Just the shirt and hat. When you’re a hairy animal there’s no point in pants.

Sometimes in the winter when I get my mail, it smells like bear. Do you know the smell of a wet dog? Well, I think because my mailman walks on all fours, his paws are constantly wet from the snow and he handles the mail and, oh well.

For Christmas I left him six trout wrapped in newspaper. For a week my lobby smelled like fish and bear.
