Things I learned while at the Post Office

  • It costs $8.54 to mail a bowling pin to Utah
  • Connor does not listen to his mom
  • Connor is friends with the postal worker dude and will get a present when it’s his turn in line
  • The present is for being the best big brother in the world
  • Eight people standing in line at the post office will spontaneously say “Awww” when the postal worker dude holds Connor’s five-week-old sister, Jillian, and says to the crowd, “Now this is a special delivery”
  • Jillian is named after her sister
  • That cheesedog special delivery line will seem almost sweet
  • But only after you hear Connor & Jillian’s mom talk about how Jillian looks like her sister
  • And how Jillian is easily consoled like her sister
  • And then only after you hear Mary, the postal worker lady, ask if that makes it easier
  • And then Connor & Jillian’s mom says that no it makes it bittersweet
  • And then after Connor, Jillian, and their mom leave Mary tells you that the sister died
  • Of cancer
  • When she was only 18-months-old

    Now, who in Utah would want a bowling pin? That’s just weird.
