I don’t think our postie remembered to pack sandwiches this morning. This is how one of our pieces of correspondence (read bills) arrived on the doormat. I hope she doesn’t eat anything too important, or get indigestion. Perhaps her doctor told her to eat more lettuce. Letters. Get it? Oh dear. Sometimes my inner punmeister goes into overdrive and this is bad news for everyone around me. Again, both the imagination and the pun are ways of making connections, of mapping words, such as homonyms, to create new or humorous ideas. Contemplation and creativity are closely related. Both rely on innovation and connection, just as comedy does.
