As I pulled into the driveway up and up toward the house this morning, drenched to the bone after a two hour ride in the sweltering heat I caught site of a strange box sitting on my doorstep. I momentarily stopped lusting after a cool shower — could it be the box I was expecting? (Well, duh! I’m only expecting one box at the moment!) But I was anticipating its arrival no sooner than next week. Getting to play around this weekend with my spur-of-the-moment acquisition would be a totally unexpected pleasure.
I’ve shipped and received quite a few things. The boxes are usually… well, you know — more box-like. More rectangular, I guess. But as I began to open it up, the item inside appeared to be well packed and intact. (In fact, it took a good deal longer to unpack than I would have expected.)
Just a peek for now. More to come later.
