Has anyone else here written fictional letters? Its something a few friends and I did when we were 'getting too old' for imaginary games. We used to write letters, but not from us.
When I was in my teens, learning to type on an old Facit typewriter, I had a lot of fun typing up ficticious letters for my own amusement. It was much more fun than the assignment letters, usually about such dreary subjects as companies ordering goods, following up outstanding account payments, or invitations to high-class tea-parties!
I once made up a series of ridiculous fictional employee discipline letters. These were designed to allow the reader to "read between the lines" and see the stupidity of an over-zealous boss issuing 1st, 2nd, and final warnings to an employee over a trivial issue that was clearly just a big misunderstanding. (Later in life I learned that such things are not very humourous and are in fact closer to the truth in many cases!)
I also wrote a variety of letters with funny names, addresses and subjects. I've probably got them stored away somewhere in my "archive".
My employer probably wouldn't appreciate me injecting too much humour into my letters that justify a yes or no decision to customers. But I still try to slip in the occasional big word and see if I can get it past my boss without him noticing.
So I save my humour for personal letters now.
