last week, i recieved a care package from my parents. my mom kept nervously calling about it, making sure i knew it was coming. she specified several times that it was very important matt and i open it together. what could it be??
the package arrived at my office. my coworker and i pondered about its contents. we rattled off ideas. shook the box, and tried to guess.
then i brought it home and found... this...
peeps. wooly willies (?!) gum balls. cheap little candies like smarties and airheads. NERF ARROWS AND TOY BASKETBALL HOOPS.
it was so random and amazing! nevermind that it's still a few weeks before easter, and they've never even sent me an easter care package before... i was sure this was going to be a serious and heartfelt gift. but nope!
this is classic, actually. one christmas i got a box of my mom's worn work pumps. why? "oh, i thought you could use a pair." i was really confused. it took me about 5 minutes before i realized there was a gift certificate to another store taped to the top inside of the box.
we shot the little arrows around the room (much to the cats' delight) and fell into a sugar stupor with bunny ears on.
yay for quirky parents and their silly/ fun ideas!
