pass it on

can you imagine one box whispering to its closest neighbor?
and that neighbor whispering to the next,
and the next?
would the message be the same by the time it reached the end of the line?

In the world of people, it rarely is.

I've never seen quite so many lined up in a row, even in Vermont. In Chinese whispers the message gets garbled very quickly.

I'm with Sharon.And I love this line of mail boxes! Impossible in France, we're more or less obliged to have all same boxes.. :(

Very funny...and that little exercise was common when I was younger...it was always great fun because by the time the "message" got around the group it had changed dramatically!

I thought you were away so just to let you know I'm posting on our website blog:

That was a game we played when I was a kid, but I always played with other kids, not with mailboxes.

What an excellent story this would make!

Ho! I was thinking there'd be some jealousy there if the mailboxes talked among themselves . . . #40 got an invitation to #65's barbecue, but I didn't get one. . . etc

Not with people, of course. But with inanimate objects? Much more literal, I think.

The letterboxes playing Chinese whispers. Very good photo.

Sharon is correct...info gets distorted. I like that neat row of mailboxes.

I think not Brattcat, unless mailboxes have better 'listening' skills than we mortals :)

I think you know the answer to that. LOL MB

Bibi said...

Ha, good one. There must be something in the air with mailboxes, since I posted this one recently.

JM said...

So cool and what a great composition!
