The delivery man in the brown truck came today-we were expecting a package. The expected package contained an internet order and was extremely disappointing. Out of 14 items orders, it contained only one of them and 13 were on back order. I didn’t know I was ordering from squirrels. The other was completely unexpected-outta the blue! It was from my buddy, Ranger, that beach bum from North Carolina. At least he seems to live at the beach.
We opened the package and I couldn’t believe it. Dreams do come true! I didn’t know that these were for real. Yes they do have
GREEN BEAN CHIPS!
You mean to tell me that I’ve been on this planet for over 12 years and didn’t know that there were green bean chips? I have totally wasted my life. But, as they say, today is the first day of the rest of your life and I’m going to make up for lost time. What’s that, peep? Whaddya mean I can’t have more than one a day? To hell with my low-fat diet. Oh, OK. I remember the pancreatitis pain. So, evidently this is a treat to be doled out carefully. I’ll just have it for dessert after I get the frozen beans. But as they say in the info-mercials, “but wait, there’s more”! There’s a Kong frog. Kong stuff is hard to destroy-it takes me some time. It has minimal stuffing AND a replacement squeaker.
Whoa, what’s that?
Kali-get away from that-it’s MINE. The package was addressed to ME, not you. Kaci (“little miss toy-in-mouth”) is trying to stake a claim on the frog.
Kaci (as usual) ran to the back of the house so nobody could grab her treat. With the selfishness of these two, I’m just going to have to guard my new stuff.
There was a note from Ranger. “Thinking of you, Kyla”. I’m speechless. However, in my best Scottish Carolina accent,
AROOOOO-Thank y’all, sir.
