Every day on my way home from work, I stop at the mail box at the top of our street. It's one of those community mail boxes where everyone has a key to open their little cubbie, and it's one of the small highlights of my day, getting the mail. True, most of the time it's full of bills and grocery ads, but every now and then I get a magazine or even a letter from a pen pal (Yes, I still have pen pals- I signed up here). Even better than a magazine or a real, handwritten letter is when you find a key in your mail box. You see, it's a rare occurrence to get a package, and when you do get one, the mail man puts a special key in your mail box that opens an even bigger mail box. It's an exciting thing to see the key sitting in your box, especially when you're not expecting a package.
So imagine my surprise today, when the key was in my mail box! Woo hoo! Who sent me a package!? Maybe an early birthday present? Did I win a prize? Had I ordered something I forgot about?
I put the key in, turned it, and opened the door to find this....
What the heck.......baby formula? Who sent me baby formula? I started to think that maybe someone had sent a present in a baby formula box, and they probably just forgot to wrap it, or maybe they were just lazy or forgot, you know, because they were taking care of their baby. However when I opened it, it was bonafide baby food.
All I could do was laugh. I really don't remember signing up for any thing where I'd get free baby formula and I thought it was kind of ironic that I would get it, given my infertile state. When the handyman got home, and I showed it to him, he looked confused and then said, "Are you pregnant?"
Uh, no babe. I wasn't upset, in fact, all I could do was laugh- it was the most random thing to find in the mail. Heck, maybe it's a good sign of good things to come! *crossing fingers*
But in the mean time, if you know anyone who needs baby formula, let me know! Rather than holding onto it, it makes more sense to let someone use it!
