It was like a reward, you know? As soon as I made up my mind to go home, only good things—like really good things—started to happen. Weather, feeling relaxed, running longer and harder than I’ve ever been able (and thus sweating more, but let’s overlook that for now please.) The point: things have been good in the past couple of days.
Today’s event, however, was the crowning moment of the Good Things. It came in the form of a bright yellow 3M mailer from Jennie, divine creator of Trim & Fashionable, and reader of this very blog. She sent it out on August 29th and today, nearly a month later, it arrived along with something I’d already ordered in the mail from a Brazilian store. So two packages on one day: excellent.
BUT—it wasn’t ’til I’d opened Jennie’s package that “excellent” was an understatement. People: she sent me Hershey Kisses. TWO BAGS OF HERSHEY KISSES. And even though it’s been hot and gross recently (not since I made up my mind, though. It’s been beautiful since then,) these Kisses are in perfect condition. I had to rip open the bag immediately just to check them out–you know, make sure they were still edible. After a solid twenty minutes of sucking these things down, I can tell you they are very edible. Hershey Kisses travel well.
So, here’s to the Lovely Jennie, restorer of proper American chocolate levels in my bloodstream, giver of cookie recipes, and Postal Angel. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! This was one of the nicest things anyone has ever done for me. You made my day!
