They’d never even have to place an ad…..

September 13, 2012


I have ordered two things this week and have been shocked at how quickly they arrived. I ordered a half-dozen ukuleles on Saturday (you never know when you’re going to need them) and they were on my doorstep Monday.

They are not cheaper by the half-dozen, unless you order cheap ukes. Which I do.

I ordered some kitchen-towel bibs on Wednesday, and they were here on Thursday. I didn’t select super-fast delivery for either of these – they just came super-fast anyway.

I joked with Lloyd that maybe the companies are employing psychics, because if they aren’t – they should.

Order packer: “Are you sure I’m supposed to be packing the brown shoes?”
Psychic: “Yep, ship ’em out.”
(minutes pass) Order packer: “Hey, the lady just called and ordered black shoes, but I’ve already sent the order.”
Psychic: “Relax. She’s going to change her mind in about ten minutes.”

    Now I want to know: what are the ukuleles for? And while we’re at it, what are the bibs for?

    Are you having a Hawaiian-themed lobster feast?
    Are you sponsoring a ukulele night for Droolers Anonymous?

      As much as I’d like to say ‘insulation’, it’s that Deborah is teaching a class now that I might visit in December for a mini ukulele tutorial. I did it last year for Annette and ordered a bunch of ukuleles, but they never came. The company was out of stock from November until April. That is nuts, right?

      …a ukulele night for Droolers Anonymous…HAHAHA!

      And I thought a similar thing while reading….what are these for? Is she doing a rendition of the 12 Days of Christmas?

      On the 12th day of scho-ol, Mrs. Sommerer gave to me,
      12 Kitchen towel bibs,
