My “aunt” (I say that because she is my aunt through marriage though I wish she was mine) sent me a random care package. She doesn’t know me extremely well but she wanted to do something for me nice anyway.
It was totally unexpected. Plus, who doesn’t like to get mail from UPS, Fed Ex etc? Raise your beers if it’s not bills, am I right fellas? Ladies? Oh that’s right, its 9 am in some parts. It’s 5:00 pm some where people.
In the box I found a book (had read it already but still loved the fact that I owned a book!), a bookmarker, a wallet (Gucci fake but I love it), a nice magnet from San Diego, stationary that was a magnet, a small decoration of fish and this huge fish.
All these items were random things that she probably had lying around at home, or saw in a store. All are inexpensive I am sure. I loved it all. It was a gift all from her. It was actually in this case, the thought that counted. She is from San Diego and got things that were around that somehow represented her and San Diego. I loved that.
Then I thought, why don’t we bloggers do that with each other?
So here is my proposal: Once a month with a different person each month we send them a care package like that. All my bloggers friends are all over the nation and globe. Some are from the UK, Tennessee, Pennsylvania, Nevada, California. We should just send each other little things that we have in our homes or things we might find in dollar stores. And we just do it once a month. Or whatever you think. I am not sure how much time I wanna spend in a post office. I sure none of you want to do that so I felt once a month would be practical.
Think of how much we can learn about each other in just these little things. We would be getting small presents and finally!! Good mail! And if not that, possibly a prompt for a post. This has been my new silver lining in life: Well at the least, I could blog about it.
So how about it? Is anyone in?
If not, it’s totally understandable. One of you could be a killer … we don’t know. Hell even if you one you dresses like a man on the weekends … I would be down. You could send me some panty hose or something.
So let me know what you think. And we can go for them.
