The first post I read today gave me quite a chuckle and a sigh of relief. I Forgot to Mail Your Card Today, Mary pretty much summed up my life. Like Ruth, I usually buy cards in advance and then get to them shortly before the event. Many times, however, I scratch my head and wonder – did I already send the card? If not, where is it? If so — what was it?
Sad to say I’ve had recipients of my lovely cards wax and wane about the humor, beauty or uniqueness of the ‘said’ card as I stand on the other end of the phone wishing we were on Skype and I could get a glimpse of this work of art!
And I have been known to send out a second card with a note inside saying “In my mind I already send a birthday card to you but since I’m not sure if I actually sent it, here is another one filled with love and happiness.”
Not only do I get chuckles, I often get a phone call telling me how wonderful it was to receive two birthday cards from me!
Now, I know with Ruth’s post and my plethora of experiences, that you must have had something like this happen to you too – right? If you can remember it, feel free to post and give us all a chuckle!
