I pulled an unexpected by posting on Monday this week, but there's still time to enter my store giveaway if you haven't already! BIG THANKS to everyone who has already entered, passed along their good wishes, or even purchased something (Rhiannon, I'm looking at you, and yes, you are the best!!). I am so very thankful (HEY! On this post-US Thanksgiving day, I'm thankful for all of you. AWWWWW). I've decided that my store "schtick" is that I'm including a short letter from moi with every purchase. It's like a double mail day. You didn't ask to hear from me but you know what? YOU'RE GETTING IT ANYWAY. Because that's how I roll.
And if you haven't entered, what are you waiting for? Five minutes of your time for the chance to win something free seems like a good idea to me! If this was a lunch room and we were talking about leftover catering from a meeting, there'd be no question: blink and all that would be left would be the carcasses of picked-apart sandwiches and leftover butter. Don't risk being left with room temp butter, enter now! [Please don't mock my crappy analogy. I thought long and hard about it. That's 2.56 seconds of my life I'm not getting back.]
Here is your regularly scheduled Friday post:We all love snail mail, but I think we also know how frustrating the mail system can be. I swear, for every two letters I'm sending out, I'm recieving one of them back in my mailbox because Canada Post doesn't know the difference between "TO" and "FROM."
I'm no genius, but typically, the "TO" address is, I dunno, on the same side as the stamp?!!! Plus, the words "Please deliver to" above the address is a pretty big indicator of where the letter is going to.
Don't you think being able to know the difference between "To" and "From" should be a requirement for working for the post? Can you imagine if someone working for NASA didn't understand the difference between "Take Off" and "Abort?" Oh, the humanity! How would NASA have then transported deep oil drillers onto an asteroid in order to blow it up?! The answer is simple: they wouldn't be able to. But they did! I can't quite remember what I was talking about when I first started this paragraph, but I do remember this: Bruce Willis saved the world. Oh, the humanity!
Anyone else having frustrating mail days too?
