My husband could attest to just how obnoxious I can be when I’m full of my own cleverness. I tell you, no one can laugh at my jokes the way I can. I had a real doozy last night that I woouuuuuld share, but it would probably offend some people.
Instead, let me relay to you the opening lines of a thank you card I just constructed in response to something that happened the last weekend of July.
“First of all, will you notice the day I wrote this? [arrow pointing to the date of 7/31/14] The very day after we returned home from our epic adventure, and yet you are receiving this months later! I tell you, the postal service lately is not at all what it used to be! I’d write a letter of complaint but it would probably arrive sometime next decade!….”
You get the idea. Feel free to use it to cover your own behind when you woefully forget to properly thank someone for a kindness. The postal service makes for a great scapegoat.*
And now, because even I will admit that that was not really all THAT funny, I will share with you something that truly IS quite funny.
*If you work for the postal service, I’m only teasing. My apologies for blaming you for my own laxity. I still love you even though you are increasingly becoming out-dated.
