Josh was willing to pay the full $400 asking price to give me this for my birthday, because he had not yet bought me a present.

But I said no. It was too expensive.

We could have gone back to the estate sale the next day, and if it had not yet been sold, it would have been $300. But we didn't, because I thought that was still too much for something that was just a display piece.

Maybe if it was still sitting there by the end of the day, we could have made an offer. But I said to forget it, because I don't even need a block of post office boxes, circa 1906, with bronze doors. Sure, I could've delivered pretend letters to myself, and then pretended to check my own mail, but that's just silly.

Kinda kicking myself now.
