Brown Paper Packages Tied Up With String…
These were among the list of Fräulein Maria’s favourite things from the classic film, The Sound of Music. I would have to say, they are on my list, too. It is always such a treat to open the mailbox and find a brown package inside.
I’m not much of a shopper anymore. I find the older I get, the less I can tolerate crowds. So online shopping has been a real gift. And the added bonus is getting deliveries in the mail. There is just something fun about unwrapping a package, even when I know what’s inside.
And those unexpected parcels are even more fun…or are they?
The other day I finally ordered my own copy of the Phantom Of The Opera sheet music for piano (okay – so I’m 30 years behind the times) and Deb Raney’s latest novel, The Face Of The Earth. It felt like Christmas day as ripped open the Amazon wrapping.
And inside I found a little extra gift…a DVD! I didn’t order one, so I double checked the packing slip. No DVD listed. Curious, I turned it over to see this….
Just in case you can’t read it, it says:
GET Your Body Back.
7 SHORT CARDIO FAT-BLASTING WORKOUTS PLUS CELLULITE BLASTER.
Lose the Baby Weight, Tight Your Tummy, Feel Great!
Ummm, thanks Amazon?
(If you need me, I’ll just be working out.)
