I was showing Katrina, one of my coworkers, how to use the laser printer to address envelopes, which is way cool and a whole hell of a lot easier than trying to get the address on a letter to line up with the window in a window envelope, or print an address on a label and stick it on an envelope. You burn up more paper that way than Nazis at a book-burning rally.

The procedure is dead simple: Just open Microsoft Word, type the address as you would like it to appear on the envelope, click on the tab labeled “mailings” and select “envelope.” What could be easier?

It’s certainly a lot easier that typing the address, at least for me. When I got to the zip code I doubt very much that I got a single digit right without having to backspace and start over. Sometimes I had to backspace twice and transpose. When I finally got to the end after a half-dozen tries I threw my arms in the air and shouted, “GOAL!” Then collapsed in exhaustion on the desk top.

“And it’s only Tuesday,” Katrina said.

“I’m not going to make it to Friday,” I sobbed.
