plague day fun

i decided that it might be a good idea to leave my germ-filled abode and venture out into the bacteria-filled great outdoors. really, i just had to run to the post office to pick up a mystery package that had been sitting there waiting for me since the 8th.

i was a littly giddy as i stood there in line waiting my turn. not just because i was getting a mystery package, but also because i had been over double during a surprise coughing fit outside the post office and oxygen hadn’t quite reached my brain yet.

“hi, i have a package here,” i said to the post mistress with the feathery blond hair.
“what’s your name again?”
“jodi chromey.”
“right,” she said. ” i should have known that, you look like the other chromeys. well, if you are related to them.”
“i’m not.”
“it must be the red hair.”

so apparently there are some chromeys lurking about the prior lake area with red hair and looking as though they are related to me. i can’t wait to meet them.

the feathery blond post mistress came back and thrust a small box in my hand. as post office decorum dicates, i waited until i was outside to start jabbing my keys into the tape to unearth what was inside.

and what was there?

my very own tupperware salt and pepper shakers, just like the ones pictured here, but my very own. they are gonna look all kinds of kick ass on my advocado green stove.

so mystery package sender (or Kathy M. from Prince Edward Island) please stand up and get the mad props you deserve.

    Ooooh, I love surprise packages. You’ll have to take a picture of your new shakers on the aforementioned stove.

    Hope you’re feeling better soon.

    Oh wow, we had those shakers when I grew up. What a nostalgia trip. Many mad props to the package sender, that’s an awesome gift.
