Postal Hug

A friend of mine is having a baby. I thought I'd surprise her with some cute cookies.













I was going to stand them up in a bag with floral foam in it, but as the package was traveling out of state, I thought I had better just lay them down in a box.


I mailed them Monday. Tuesday she had A REALLY BAD DAY. Nothing life or death, just more of a completely unexpected swift kick in the arse. Today, Wednesday, she was still sore from the "kick," when these arrived. I meant them to be just for fun, but they really ended up being a postal hug. She couldn't call me because of the tears of thankfulness, but she sent a grateful e-mail. :)

Very, very cool :-)

I hate those kicks, but it's friends like you that make them bearable.

I love postal hugs. Nothing will ever replace snail mail for me.
