Standing in line at the post office yesterday, I was feeling proud that my first Christmas box was complete. Stuffed with toys, candy and all kinds of Christmas delights, this first box of the season was getting ready to start it's long oversea's journey to Germany.
The last couple of days have been very chilly, especially for us coastal inhabitants who are used to a mild 40 degree winter. With a tiny skiff of snow on the ground and ice-covered roads, I was feeling a bit of a nip in the air. While waiting my turn in line, I shuffled around and stamped my feet to keep them warm. The activity proved a bit much for the toy inside the box, which I had not been able to turn off before packing. From the depths of Christmas wrapping and peppermint candies, a not-so-small voice was heard to say, "To infinity....and BEYOND!"
Oh, Buzz. Quiet down. You have a long way to go and I so hope that the people in customs have a sense of humour. No, that noise is not a bomb. It is only a small toy who thinks that he is a space ranger. He's not. Just a toy.
Please Mr. Postman, send him on to the small boy who is waiting for his Christmas package from his Grandma and Grandpa.
(Pop over to Mary's Writing Nook for a Christmas book swap. Sign up's are until November 29th and you don't have to have a blog to join. Come on. It's a fun little swap!)
