I went to ten different places today to find boxes to ship some contest prizes. (Don't feel bad, contest winners, I needed the boxes to ship orders in as well.) Could not find what I wanted. Didn't really matter. Turns out, it's only 10¢ more to ship everything Priority Mail—and you can use their box for free. So, since when does Priority Mail cost the same as Parcel Post???
While I was at Office Max I looked at several of the digital camera models that have been suggested by you wonderful people (another contest). I only set their shoplifting alarm off twice. The guy was really nice and said, "Some of these alarms are so sensitive..." but I noticed he stayed right there by me while I looked at more models. Then he discreetly followed me around until I left the store.
On my way out the door, I had to stop and LOL at a display of mugs. (This apparently did not do anything to discourage the guy who was following me.) My favorite mug had this on it:
That's my type of affirmation! I had to buy it. Now I just need to decide whether to keep it for myself or give it to someone for Christmas...
