Stamp

This array is neither ordered nor random. Yet even I can see how silly it’d be to spend an hour creating ‘ordered ramdomness’.

You may be gripped with the desire to soak off and reuse uncancelled postage stamps.

The appeal will be a heady mix of parental example, manual activity, fiscal advantage (negligible) and/or environmental responsibility (also negligible).

If you’re obsessed with order, you may actually trim the torn paper edges before soaking.

With time, the ridiculous futility of this activity may wean you off it.

If not, self-sticking stamps will play merry hell with your ability to calculate optimal soaking time.

This is because their glue behaves differently according to age, temperature and envelope porosity.

Thwarted from devising a reliable methodology, you’ll fret over each stamp that disintegrates between your earnest fingers.

Don’t take it too hard.
