going postal

I had two packages to mail today.

2.

You know I really love you if I send you a package.

I love you even more if I send one during the holidays.

Did I mention how much I HATE mailing things. I am really not a fan of going to the post office.

Still, today I dropped K off at school with the help of my trusty assistant (hi mom) and then even though it was still 20 minutes until the post office opened we stood there.

In line.

Behind three people. With packages. And stuff.

By the time the door opened at 8:30 there were about 15 people in line behind me.

FIFTEEN.

Do you understand how many people that is waiting to get into the post office before 8:30 in the morning.

Nineteen.

But I got the packages mailed. Two of them.

And a couple of cards. Okay maybe three cards.

But I'm probably not sending you anything.

I hate going to the post office.

Yikes! I hope I won't be facing that in half an hour when I go to mail the Wii I scored for a good friend.

I hate going to the post office as well, unfortunately I work there.

By the way did you know today is the busiest day of the year as far as packages go?

Yep, I'm a regular Cliff Claven of info.

I did my postal duty (hee, I said duty) a few weeks ago. I try with all my might to avoid the P.O. this time of year. . .

Just be glad that you weren't in line behind me. I mailed 18 boxes of cookies today. And there was only one working terminal, so everybody had to wait for me to finish this humongous transaction. So see, it could have been worse.

I always have great intentions to send stuff but I can't bear the place either.

I feel 85% better now.
