I get home on Thursday night and find this rather large box on my couch. I stared at it in disbelief. I said, "Are you kidding me? They shipped it in this?" Brian says, "Yeah I've been wonderin what's in it." I said, "Well wait till you see what's inside. Geez talk about overkill."
I didn't realize that one of my friend's birthday was on August 4. Ever since Facebook changed their Events calendar, I only find out about birthdays after I get home from work, on the day of the event. It used to be set up so you could see at least 3 days' worth of birthdays. Now if I want to see them in advance, I have to remember to click on "See All" every day, so that I know what's coming up. If I had known, my gift to her wouldn't be so tardy. I knew exactly what I wanted to make for her: A necklace in the colours of her fave futbol team. But I had to order the main component directly from the store in Seattle, as I needed it for the pendant.
This teeny, tiny Seattle Sounders FC charm was in that ginormous box. They couldn't have put it in a smaller padded envelope?Now I know why the shipping was the same price as the merchandise!!!
