The Post Office Is Going To Wonder What I was Drinking

When I was at the office store getting my Christmas card images printed, I couldn’t find any stationary envelopes the right size and shape to fit them. I was thinking about ways to solve that problem, and then I saw something shiny and forgot all about the whole envelope thing until yesterday, when I sat down to get my cards signed and ready for mailing. And didn’t have anything to mail them in. They’re too big for me to make envelopes for them with standard-size paper, and the only oversized stuff I have is tracing paper, which isn’t postal-system friendly. And if I don’t get these cards mailed out soon they may not all get where they’re going in time, because I’m a slacker and took way too long to get the pics finished.

What I’m getting at is that if you receive a card from me this Christmas and it’s wrapped in gift-wrap paper or part of a brown paper bag or somesuch, I’m not trying to be even more eccentric than usual. It’s what I could scrounge up. Because late Christmas cards Aren’t Jolly.

On the other hand, you’ll instantly know which card is from me without even having to read the return address. Like a unique snowflake in your mailbox.

So remember: they’re not “different.” They’re SPECIAL. You’re welcome.

    In this instance I would have preferred a bit of “holiday preparedness,” but thank you. đŸ™‚
