It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas
So here's the pear tree, with nary a partridge in sight.
We were planning on going out for a nice dinner, but are being held hostage by FedX, waiting for a package. Since it's nearly 8 oclock I'm gonna guess we'll be sitting here tomorrow as well. They send you a nice email announcing the delivery window, but it doesnt seem to be very reliable. UPS, on the other hand, nails it. They start a couple days ahead, tell you what to expect, revise it as things change, and then tell you when they've dropped off the package. In this day and age you don't want to leave anything on the porch for a minute or it will disappear. So we foraged in the fridge and didnt do too badly, and there is panettone for dessert. But now they're getting close to messing with my bedtime. I just had this image of me sitting on the porch in a rocking chair, waiting, rocking, waiting, waiting for that darn truck.
