My mom does a lot of shopping online so it’s inevitable that we have a lot of cardboard boxes lying around, the majority of which have the swoopy Amazon logo on the side. The delivery man leaves them in the designated spot and my dad brings them inside when he gets the mail.
It’s a good system.
At least until I came along.
Last week I ordered book #2 in the Uglies series and two workout videos (Denise Austen’s Bootcamp (so-so) and Shape’s Get Lean (loved it)). I like Jillian Michaels, but I’ve used two of her videos — and only hers — for two years now and it’s time for some new blood.
I received an email that they had been shipped, but since I opted for the cheapo version I figured it’d still be another week. I was all prepared for five more days of Jillian when my package arrived several days early!
The box was open when I got home because my dad opened it by mistake, thinking it was something for him. I didn’t think much of it until later when my mom told me he was waiting for a new Tom-Tom. Imagine his surprise when he tore open the box expecting his latest techno-gadget and instead found a young adult novel and two workout videos.
I swear we weren’t trying to give him a hint. 😉
