after last week’s surprise package of tempting treats
another food surprise arrived
a couple of breakfast meals
seem to have fallen from the sky
right to my front door
this time delivered by grub hub
with no address on the receipt
delivered in the morning when i was at school
huge portions of pancakes and eggs benedict
i’m sure they were hot and delicious when they arrived
another set of challenges to my healthy eating
testing my temptation limits
is my door the common delivery area for every address on my street?
what will appear next?
should i leave snacks and drinks out for all of the delivery people yet to come?
“when fortune knocks open the door.”
i recently made halloween cards
for all of my grandies and nieces
and sent them out early
to make sure they arrived in time
imagine my surprise
when i opened my mailbox
and found a letter
that i had sent out
a day earlier
only to have the post office
deliver it back to me
instead of sending it on ahead
somehow they had managed
to process it on the back of the envelope
and decided that my return address sticker
was where it should be delivered
i often wonder about their logic
and am pleasantly surprised
when things actually get
to where i had intended them to go
i will try again tomorrow
and tell them that it should go
to where the mailing address is
on the front of the letter.
“you know you’re a fool when what you’re doing
makes even the post office seem efficient.”
staff members of the slovak and slovenian embassies meet once a month to exchange incorrectly addressed mail.
close enough, but alas, two very different places.
i should organize this with my neighbors.
‘i believe that the open exchange of information can have a positive global impact.”
