The Thank You Note Can Wait
Tungsten Tripwire got a gift wrapped package in the mail from his mother. He opened it and found a CD inside. He loaded the CD on his computer. A dialog box appeared on his monitor. Do you wish to activate your gift now? Tungsten pressed enter. Instantly a full sized hologram of his father appeared in front of him. Tungsten blinked. His father died twenty years ago. Hello Tungsten, the hologram said. Do you want to go fishing today? Would you like to play catch? Or have a few beers? It's been a long time. I've missed you very much.
